APR 24 Here's the op-ed in the New York Times from our governor about how he's not going to be bullied by the "shrieks" of "big business" (Wait - doesn't he love big business? That's what he tells the Koch brothers!) and he's going to take a stand against those sissies who think people have the right to love whomever they choose. Cause listen: he's for Jesus, and Jesus was agin love. So there.
APR 24 Bobby Jindal finally gets to represent the Republican Party! Woot! Well - to be honest, it's in this Rolling Stone story about how the GOP is clueless about what most people (including most GOP people) really think about stuff, and about how he is representative of that blindness. But hey - it's still a national publication. Yay!
APR 24 Columnist James Gill is writing about former prosecutor Sal Perricone, who was part of the scandal involving the NOLA US Attorney's office and some lame (and apparently not all that anonymous) comments in the Picayune's website. Now Sal has written a book, and it's not any better than his poorly-written troll posts, Gill says.
APR 24 Blogger Tom Aswell gives us the details of the lawsuit against the state (namely Bobby Jindal) for the governor's handling of the state employees' health insurance system. Fellow blogger Dayne Sherman is one of the plaintiffs.
APR 24 This post on Wonkette is all about Bobby Jindal's New York Times op-ed about how he is not going to be detered from hating gay people and trying to make discrimination against them legal. If you know anything about Wonkette, you can probably guess what's coming next.
APR 24 Here's Gambit's usual guide to Jazz Fest, with recommended performances, a printable schedule and other goodies.
APR 23 Blogger Tom Aswell is advancing the theory that Bobby Jindal's systematic destruction of our public universities is related to Grover Norquist and ALEC. (Well, duh, Tom) Anyone who has read the ALEC playbook knows that Bobby is doing just what he's told. The question is, does he really think this will get him to the White House? The other question - is the crippling of Louisiana's future justified in satisfying Bobby's ambition - already has been answered.
APR 23 Here's a post on the New York Daily News about the Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge, where a teacher was arrested this week for having a sexual relationship with a student two years ago, when the child in question was a 15-year-old freshman. The teacher called the assault "a mistake."
APR 23 Here's blogger Bob Mann's take on the developments this week over at Louisiana's flagship university (such as it is) vis-a-vis the draining of its budget, the reduction of its credit rating, the humiliation of its faculty and staff, etc., etc., etc. Included is a message from the LSU system president promising that preparations are underway for the worst-case scenario. Oh - OK then.
APR 23 Here's a post on Cleveland.com about a (lame) attempt at humor by our Bobby Jindal in New Hampshire last week. It shows he knows as much about making people laugh as he does about education, state finances and jobs creation. Maybe Bobby will spend more time listening and less time parroting his talking points and learn how to relate to other human beings. Nah!
APR 9 Just when you thought that Durst story couldn't get any creepier, you see this. The accused murder/millionaire has been known to dress in drag on occasion, and this is an interview with his drag mother on the Inquisitr. She tells a pretty weird story, but that's nothing new where Durst is concerned.
