Republicans Win 124%-68%

leave a comment »

There were two special elections in Louisiana yesterday.  One house seat openned up when Republican  Richard Baker left the House to become a lobbyist–after 20 years of distinguished service he deserves it.  In the other special election Republican Bobby Jindal’s House seat was openned since he became Governor. 

Today the mainstream press keeps trumpeting Democrat Don Cazayoux’s victory 49-46 over Woody Jenkins in Baker’s old seat.  What it seems to ignore is that the GOP and Steve Scalise beat Gilda Reed 75-22.  Add up the votes–the Republicans came out on top 124-68.  This is a crushing defeat for the Democrats, the portent of things to come in November, and proof that McCain’s comments about tearing down New Orleans haven’t hurt the Republicans there.
