MAR 26 David Vitter certainly has sexual issues with women, if the allegations that he was a regular customer of pimps in DC and NOLA are correct, but apparently he's got other issues with chicks as well, blogger Tom Aswell says in this post. He's reminding us of the same story Lamar was writing about this week.
MAR 26 Duck person Phil Robertson is making headlines again. This time, while trying to make some point (we're not sure what it is, but surely there was a point) he comes up with a story about an atheist family who suffer an attack in which the young girls and wife are raped and the man is sexually mutilated and murdered. Seriously, what is in that iced tea?
MAR 26 Here's a story on Politico quoting Bobby Jindal as saying that the next president needs to be a conservative governor. Right - because what we really need in the US of A is a massive deficit, reduced credit ratings, screwed up health care systems and blind allegiance to Norquist, ALEC and the Kochs. Oh, and one of Bobby's top priorities for this new prez? Pushing back on media. Right - because the media caused the collapse of the banks, the wars we're in, the destruction of our public education system and global warming. Oh wait - forget global warming. The liberals made that up.
MAR 26 Here's a new post on the Drinking Culture blog of NOLA Defender. This time, our intrepid imbiber is visiting Pal's over in Mid City. As usual, a story is told, a picture painted, and it is fascinating.
MAR 26 Here's a cool story that is making the rounds of the national news. This post on NBC tells of an 18-wheeler that got stuck while carrying a couple of elephants in north Louisiana. The truck was in danger of tipping over, so the elephants were removed from the trailer and pressed into service. It's a cute story, but don't tell PETA.
MAR 26 This post on American Zombie puts a recent (horrific) story out of New Orleans in perspective. Video has surfaced of some young white boys beheading a goat, which coincides with the SPCA's complaint regarding the headless body of a goat in the yard of a house in the 700 block of Broadway in uptown NOLA. What's in that block? A bunch of Tulane fraternity houses. Wow - this is how Jeffrey Dahmer got started. Not cool.
MAR 25 The Red Shtick has come up with a great idea for solving our state's budget disaster - Bobby Jindal can rent out the Governor's Mansion on Airbnb. After all, it's empty half the time. Why shouldn't we be getting some ducats out of it? Unfortunately, the satire mag's done the math and he'd have to rent it out at $8 million a night to fill the budget hole we've got but hey - it's worth a shot, right?
MAR 25 This story in the Advocate asks some experts (real ones this time) why Bobby keeps putting off his announcement that he's going to run for President. It's an interesting take, and most of these guys agree that the timing is not Bobby's real problem - it's the big ole mess he's made here at home.
MAR 25 The LSU Reveille reports here that a study of college football programs reveals that LSU is the 32nd most disliked program in the country. First - that can't be right. Check again. Second - who's studying this?
