One reason is that the State Democratic Party of Louisiana makes the national Dems look like Stalwart Spirits with Adamantine Backbones and Fists of Fury.
Consider this: in a state where the Dems outnumber Republicans by roughly 2 to 1, the true Democratic candidate for Guvcame in FOURTH— behind the Conservative Independent (former Gooper), and the conservative DINO (former Gooper) and the real conservative Gooper, Bobby Jindal.
Of course, it’s Louisiana, so there’s some backasswards complicated reason for this madness. But let me just vent here and declare that the State Dem party is incompetent: strategically, politically, organizationally… etc. They’ve let the State GOP run all over them, and play sinisterlittlegames to get their way. The Dems need an overhaul, and fast.
As for Jindal, I’m sure all the conservatives nationwide who say Louisiana is too stupid for self government will now be praising our state’s “wisdom”, and our deservingness for additional flood protection monies (not).
