New Governor for Lose-iana

"Louisiana elects first nonwhite (right-wing) governor since Reconstruction"

Funny, I remember reading about a city in Louisiana that is in desperate need of "reconstruction". I wonder if minority will help minority? Hmm...

"He’s an extraordinary, young, dynamic, whip-smart, staunchly conservative Republican."

"He is a born-again Roman Catholic who has suggested that teaching intelligent design as an alternative to evolution may not be out of place in public schools, favors a ban on abortion and opposes hate-crimes laws."

Call me a pessimist, but I don't think those issues are what's gonna help N'awlins. Although I'm not her biggest fan, let's hope Mary Landrieu can keep LA's Senate delegation purple in '08.
