Love that Mark Twain. “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re misinformed,” the Missouri Muse wrote once upon a time.
    Your Humble Observer has been guilty of being both un and mis in the area of informed. That’s a major part of the reason I rarely respond to the writing of columnists. Most of them are more than a little smarter than YHO, so I hesitate to contradict.

cassidy-maness In an e-mail, Col. Rob Maness’s campaign manager Michael D. Byrne writes that “the choice in the Louisiana Senate race is becoming clearer and clearer.” He argues that Bill Cassidy misrepresented the NorthShore Republican Men’s Club Meet the Press Dinner as a “meet and greet” for himself on Facebook. This choice, Byrne asserts, is evidence of “the stark contrast between the politicians and the people.” Unlike Cassidy, Maness, he writes, supported and valued the efforts of his local Republican Club, asking his campaign staff to promote the event to area Republicans.

In addition, Congress has only a 5% approval rating, the lowest in history.
