LA-02 Democratic primary turns ugly.
It’s a real rooting for injuries kind of situation. On the one hand, you have DCCC minion (and state representative) Cedric Richmond, who apparently goes to bars and tries to push people around using his elevated status as a… state representative: …and then you have state representative Juan LaFonta, who is allegedly using a group called Louisiana TruthPAC (the group that produced the above video) | Read More »
Joseph Cao’s (R, LA-02) charming press release.
Easily the best one that you’ll read all week. The context: nobody can pronounce the Congressman’s last name properly – up to and including the President (this isn’t a slam: I was getting it wrong, too).

I would like to reassure our Republican readers that my mentioning of Joseph Cao’s alternate name in the title is in no way intended to diminish his quite impressive accomplishments in the community. You can volunteer to his campaign here, by the way – or, again, contact the LA GOP. No, I’m fully confident that any Republican reading this understands the stakes. The title is | Read More »
Are you tired of William Jefferson* (D) being the Representative for LA-02?
That’s a serious question, and one that can be profitably asked across the political spectrum. In fact, the following questions are really directed at our lurkers: does having Rep. Jefferson in a position of trust and authority bother you, on a fundamental level? Are you tired of having this man’s continued presence in Congress give the lie to all of your pious statements about being | Read More »
