Thanks To Democrats, Medicaid Expansion Is Coming To Louisiana

Ted Cruz Is Carefully Waiting For Donald Trump To Fall

I’ve been saying for some time now that Senator Ted Cruz is riding in Donald Trump’s tailwind. Unlike other presidential candidates, Ted Cruz has made it a point not to directly criticize Trump. When their views appear to differ, Cruz has said things along the lines that they have different ideas, but has carefully avoided […]

Here’s How Conservative States Like Louisiana Can Start Electing Democrats

Until recent months, it was assumed that Republican Senator David Vitter would be the next Republican governor of Louisiana. Coming into this race, David Vitter had the political wind at his back. In a jungle primary, he faced off against Public Service Commissioner Scott Angelle and¬†Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne, both Republicans. The underdog candidate was […]

Republicans Are Failing Horribly At Attracting Minority Voters

If Republicans want to remain politically viable over the next few election cycles, they must confront the fact that the ethnic landscape of America is changing.

Sensing Opportunity, Donald Trump’s Opponents Start Ramping Up Attacks

In spite of Donald Trump’s increasingly rabid campaign rallies and claims that have been debunked by fact checkers across the country, there is no sign of his popularity declining any time soon.

Louisiana Is The Perfect Example Of Conservative Policies Gone Horribly Wrong

Here in Louisiana, nearly half of registered voters are Democrats. In many other states across the South, similar statistics hold true, but these states are solidly in the hands of conservative Republicans.

David Vitter Says Country ‘Shoved’ Same-Sex Marriage ‘Down The Throats’ Of Christians

A lot of Republicans have quietly abandoned the conservative war against marriage equality. Except for the far-right and some of the politicians who cater to them, the GOP has moved on to screaming about religious freedom while trying to further erode a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion. After the Supreme Court ruled in favor […]

Desperate David Vitter Uses Duck Dynasty For Political Redemption

Remember when Duck Dynasty was still a thing? Remember how you couldn’t go into any gas station without seeing their merchandise? Well, here in Louisiana, they’re still kinda sorta a thing – especially if you’re a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is struggling in the polls against a Democrat you’ve repeatedly linked to President Obama. A […]

There’s A Brand New David Vitter Scandal, And This Time It Doesn’t Involve Hookers

Yesterday, John Bel Edwards gathered the most votes in Louisiana’s “jungle primary” for governor. Against three major candidates, all Republicans, John Bel Edwards managed to win 40% of the vote which means he will face David Vitter in a showdown next month. The fact that Mr. Edwards got 40% of the vote and has a […]

Bobby Jindal Blames Planned Parenthood For Louisiana’s Staggering Poverty, STD & Teen Pregnancy Rates

There’s absurdity, there’s the Republican Party, and then there’s Louisiana’s governor Bobby Jindal. This guy says and does things¬†that are so ridiculous, there’s no need to make up stories about his statements as some liberal blogs like Occupy Democrats or Addicting Info have done in the past. All you have to do is search the […]
