A Sort Of Win

The Associated Press says Louisiana Democrat takes GOP House seat

BATON ROUGE, La. – Democrat Don Cazayoux won a special congressional election Saturday, bolstering his party’s majority status on Capitol Hill and taking a seat held by Republicans since 1974.

If Zell Miller and Joe LIEberman are your idea of a Democrat, then Cazayoux is a Democrat. An anti-abortion, pro-gun guy who already declared his intention of joining the Blue Dog caucus, you will find him voting with the Republicans on almost everything, in the spirit of unity and bi-partisanship, of course. Nancy would probably give him a committee chair, if there were time left.

Sad to say, that’s the only kind of “Democrat” who could ever win in that Fox News watchin’ white hood wearin’ kinda district. I had some clients down there back when I was in the consulting biz, and it was like going back in time forty years…

I just have to go one county to my east into the Florida second Congressional district which is also represented by a “Democrat”, like Strom Thurmond and Zell Miller. It’s trip back to the 1950s, although I admit they have taken down the White/Colored signs, not that anyone needs them. They have just never bothered to change their registration from Democratic to Republican, but there are almost no votes for national Democratic Party candidates in the turpentine woods and red dirt farms.
