MAR 5 We all know that Bobby Jindal spends a lot of time out of the state - so when he's in Iowa or New Hampshire, who's running Louisiana? Jim Brown is writing about that in this week's blog post; he says it is supposed to be the Lt. Governor, but Bobby's peeps say it's still Bobby. Shoot, if somebody else had been in charge half the time, maybe we wouldn't be in this mess.
MAR 5 Columnist Clancy DuBos is writing here about Bobby Jindal's attempts to be viewed as a "tax virgin" on the national stage, as well as his desperate effort to spin his fiscal mismanagement by claiming Louisiana's financial situation is due to the price of oil. That's a lie, and even his buddies need to call him on that, DuBos writes.
MAR 5 Columnist Jim Beam says the budget proposed by Bobby Jindal's staff is designed to cover Jindal's hiney with psychotically anti-tax Grover Norquist - and not much else.
MAR 5 Here's a novel approach to encouraging tipsters - as WGNO reports, the owner of Melba's poboy shop on North Claiborne is fed up with people tagging the store. He's got pretty clear security video, and is offering 1000 pieces of chicken to anyone with the name and location of the two guys who spray-painted his shop.
MAR 5 Here's a post from Katie East on DIG Baton Rouge about that dress. You know the one. The one that's black and blue, or gold and white, or whatever. She explains to us why we should care - maybe not about what color the dress is, but about what happened when people started talking about it.
MAR 5 When the Saints won the Super Bowl, many fans felt that maybe, just maybe, they wouldn't have to endure inexplicably stupid personnel moves any longer. But as this post on the Picayune reports, the team released Pierre Thomas this week. Dang - here we go again.
MAR 4 This post on CB Forgotston's blog is one that should be read carefully by several folks who sit in big buildings in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. In it, he's reminding us of two guys who were christened as "Reformers" by the media before they even took office - Bobby Jindal and Ray Nagin. Maybe next time we should wait and see what they actually do, versus taking their campaign rhetoric as gospel, CB advises.
MAR 4 Blogger Jason Brad Berry brings us up to date on the latest in the defamation suit filed by an attorney removed from the BP claims process. Her suit has been transferred to the BP settlement court - for some reason - and she and her attorney are (understandably) unhappy about it, he writes.
MAR 4 The political cartoonist who often (and anonymously) graces the Louisiana Voice blog posts this one about Bobby Jindal's "I'm really just a Christian white guy" fantasy at CPAC recently. The most ridiculous part is true, but possibly that bit about Bri-Wi is satire. Possibly.
FEB 10 So, blogger CB Forgotston has waded into protraitgate, and the debate over white Bobby Jindal/brown Bobby Jindal. It's really a visual comment he's making, so we won't spoil it -- just go look.
