Mary Landrieu (D) and Barack Obama (D) must denounce Lindel Toups (D) blatant racism.
This going to be an epic NAME! THAT! PARTY!!!!!: It’s important for this to be understood, because Louisiana is going to take a PR hit thanks to the reptilian/[expletive deleted]-for-brains remark [Lindel Toups] was credited with making in a piece appearing Wednesday in the Tri-Parish Times about tomorrow’s referendum in Lafourche Parish about redirecting library funds toward a new parish jail… [snip] But he’s | Read More »
Riddle Me This, Republicans
I have read Jeffrey Anderson trying to explain how the Upton + Landrieu combo is not a trap.

It’s time for the red state Democrats in the Senate to answer the question Elijah posed to the idol-worshipers: “How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD [be] God, follow him; but if Baal, [then] follow him.” Senators like Mark Pryor (AR), Mary Landrieu (LA), Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Max Baucus (MT), Joe Manchin (WV), and Tim Johnson (SD) need to decide whether they | Read More »
Today in Washington – July 29, 2010
The Senate is debating a bill today that includes bailouts for small business, TARP, Jr. The debate between right and left on this legislation is a great example of the big government versus small government approach to economic growth. H.R.5297, officially titled the “Small Business Jobs” bill, will spend another day on the Senate floor as the left pushes to retain the TARP bailout model for | Read More »
