Bill Cassidy Announces Senate Run Against Mary Landrieu, Demos Come Out Swinging
Sen. Mary Landrieu still has nearly two years to serve on her term of office, but the race for her seat got started off this week, as Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D., threw in his bid for the Senate, a year and a half before the actual election.
Jindal Takes on GOP, Harris-Perry Takes on Jindal (VIDEO)

Today, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine was in town to talk up the Ced. We remain unimpressed - until he gets Oprah.

These givens came to a head this week when the Young Democrats of Louisiana and the Young democrats of America went to war over an election.
Once again reality proves stranger then fiction in Louisiana. This past week has been full of quotables, such as Dr. Larry Hollier when he described a grim meeting in Baton Rouge, where State University administrators proposed education cutbacks due to the expiration of Federal stimulus funds as ³wonderful for motivation and team building².
