I haven’t said that much about the Louisiana Senate campaign because it’s such a bummer, man. Vitter’s political success has never involved being likeable. He’s a loner without any friends but also one who will do whatever it takes to win.
Charlie Melancon is, of course, way too conservative for my taste but I still plan to vote for him in general election since our choice is an imperfect one. I do, however, think he’ll have a chance to deliver some money and goodies to the Gret Stet. As Clancy pointed out in the video, Melancon’s strategy involves reminding women what a shit Vitter is and how often he’s voted against their interests. It’s the path Mary Landrieu has followed in winning her three elections. I think Charlie is a helluva nice guy who will be a more effective Senator than Bitter Vitter but he’s a step to the right of Mary. Oh well, nobody said life was fair…
