    The 86 year old ex 4 time governor and more recently ex-con is running for Congress in the 6th District. He is the only Democrat running against 8 Republicans. I don't know anything about any of his opponents except that one of them is the grandson and namesake of Paul Dietzel and another is Dan Claitor. All I know about Claitor is that I have bought a few books in his dad's bookstore. I just might vote for the Silver Zipper. It would be a hoot if he won.

    I was literally about to post something about him running because I just found out. Man I'm seriously thinking about registering in La just so I can vote for him. Dude is a legend.

    I wish he were running against that old wind bag Landrieu I would definitely do it then.

    I will. Fuck it. He can't be worse than any of the others, and at least it will be funny.

    He's the only Democrat. It's either him or Claitor who is a RINO.

    Edwin is the only politician who ever did anything for me. To celebrate his victory for governor in 1972 Edwards threw a huge crawfish boil near Tiger Stadium. I went and at my fill of free crawfish.

    The only female candidate is a woman named Lenar Whitney. She is not bad looking but I saw a billboard with a picture of her wearing a pantsuit. I don't trust women who wear pantsuits. Hillary Clinton and lesbians wear pantsuits. Woman who wear pantsuits are as untrustworthy as men who wear either a bow tie or a pinky ring.

    Try'na fuck the gov, eh?

    EWE is a god damn embarrassment, and I wish his crooked ass would just disappear already. He just knows no other life outside of politics and the limelight, kind of like how Brett Favre didn't know when to quit.

    She might look pretty good if she would take off that pantsuit
