There was a runoff election held to fill Cedric Richmond’s seat in Congress last Saturday. It was a nasty campaign and I’m glad it’s over. I got tried of seeing negative ads on my Scrabble app. Is nothing sacred?
It did, however, evoke memories of the first wave of elections after Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Flood in 2006. Both candidates in Saturday’s election challenged Congressman Dollar Bill Jefferson that year and lost. It gave me the feeling that I’d been there before.
For the details, get thee to Bayou Brief where John Fogerty gets the last word.
The last word here goes to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young:
Another day, another David Crosby song. We have all been here before.
