I haven't been this excited for a Politics with a Punch panel in quite some time. But, if thise holds, I think it's going to be awesome. Mainly because I'm a drama queen. Via e-mail, here's the line-up:
Jay Batt, Former Councilman, Chair-Louisiana McCain Campaign
Virginia Boulet, Chairman of Obama Campaign, Louisiana
Manny Chevrolet Bruno, Comic-Troubled Man for Troubled Times
Joe Johnson, Former Saints Star, Member of Saints Hall of Fame
Norman Robinson, News Anchor, WDSU-TV, Channel 6
Chris Rose, Times Picayune Columnist, Author and Commentator
John Slade, Political Cartoonist, Radio Talk Show Host, Comedian
The usual election dramatics aside, I just want to see Chris Rose after his domestic disturbance arrest. Maybe he and Derrick Sheperd could start a drinking group of some sort where they go terrorize ex-girlfriends together??
Check out the comments on the Rose article. The outpouring of support is amazing and disgusting to me.

Lately it seems that whenever I see "As Seen on TV" commercials, I half expect them to turn out to be SNL skits. The crap they sell on TV is getting more and more absurd. And it's not a joke. Meet the Snuggie!
Sorry if your grandmother gave you/is giving you one of these for Christmas. I'm sure they're nice and warm. But common sense begs the question of why a traditional robe wasn't good enough for you! Also, you look like you're a part of some strange robe-wearing religious cult or some sort of medieval monk.
I'll just stick to my flannel robe and/or blanket and Tulane hoodie for those rare chilly nights.

Yes, I am the conservative half of this blog. But I make no secret of the fact that I support Mary Landrieu. In fact, as ALTL can attest to, I want to be her when I grow up. Therefore, this article from Politico makes me angry.
It shows these photos of Mary shopping for groceries in DC, where I am pretty sure she works.
I am just happy to know that she likes the same brand of yogurt as me!
...what Diaper Dave looks like from the angle oh-so-many hookers viewed him from: the Shreveport Times has captured the image in all its glory.
But sadly, he's clothed in this picture.

No changes occur. Or some might argue Ed Hochuli. At his busy practice in Arizona where he is a named partner, Hochuli specializes in Legal Malpractice and Professional Liability, Products Liability, and Personal Injury defense, to name a few. Does anyone see the humor in that besides myself?
After blowing a call in the Broncos/Chargers match up, Hochuli continued the adventure in the Saints/Vikings match up the other night. And the hate mail continues to flow. Instead of getting his eyes checked or reviewing the rule books (to fix his malpractice, you know), he is taking time to respond to all of the e-mails.
You are certainly free to have your opinions, but if you were a knowledgeable fan, you would understand that there are 7 officials out there, and you would not attribute all errors to the Referee. The face mask, for example, is no where near anything I'm looking at or supposed to be looking at when it happened.
It's popular right now to pile on Hochuli, because I blew the San Diego call. And there is certainly no requirement that anyone have any real knowledge of officiating in order to have an opinion. Fortunately, the NFL and my boss don't agree with you. You are free to have your own opinions, and since you took the time to write me, I figured I owed you the time to respond.
Maybe he should find a new hobby for his spare time.
When ALTR sent me this porn for the West Wing fan I was mostly excited to see the return of my favorite president, Jed Bartlet.
OBAMA What would you do?
BARTLET GET ANGRIER! Call them liars, because that’s what they are. Sarah Palin didn’t say “thanks but no thanks” to the Bridge to Nowhere. She just said “Thanks.” You were raised by a single mother on food stamps — where does a guy with eight houses who was legacied into Annapolis get off calling you an elitist? And by the way, if you do nothing else, take that word back. Elite is a good word, it means well above average. I’d ask them what their problem is with excellence. While you’re at it, I want the word “patriot” back. McCain can say that the transcendent issue of our time is the spread of Islamic fanaticism or he can choose a running mate who doesn’t know the Bush doctrine from the Monroe Doctrine, but he can’t do both at the same time and call it patriotic. They have to lie — the truth isn’t their friend right now. Get angry. Mock them mercilessly; they’ve earned it. McCain decried agents of intolerance, then chose a running mate who had to ask if she was allowed to ban books from a public library. It’s not bad enough she thinks the planet Earth was created in six days 6,000 years ago complete with a man, a woman and a talking snake, she wants schools to teach the rest of our kids to deny geology, anthropology, archaeology and common sense too? It’s not bad enough she’s forcing her own daughter into a loveless marriage to a teenage hood, she wants the rest of us to guide our daughters in that direction too? It’s not enough that a woman shouldn’t have the right to choose, it should be the law of the land that she has to carry and deliver her rapist’s baby too? I don’t know whether or not Governor Palin has the tenacity of a pit bull, but I know for sure she’s got the qualifications of one. And you’re worried about seeming angry? You could eat their lunch, make them cry and tell their mamas about it and God himself would call it restrained. There are times when you are simply required to be impolite. There are times when condescension is called for!
But now Paris Hilton has tapped President Bartlet and it makes me a little sad.
From an email THP received from the Capitelli campaign this morning:
Dear Capitelli Supporter,
On the week leading up to the first primary, and the days since we have received numerous requests for lawn signs, which indicates growing support for Ralph. Unfortunately on Monday night after 7:30pm, our existing signs began to disappear". Sixteen four foot by eight foot signs located on private property in Algiers were removed complete with supporting frames. One was even unscrewed from a service station wall.
We assume the the two candidates that did not move on to the second primary did not decide two days after to suddenly start removing our signs, leaving the signs of our opponent. This is disappointing, but expected, because that is how our opponent plays the "game" of politics, not an intellectual discussion of the issues, but old time machine politics operating under the dark of night. What is surprising is that our opponent who makes frequent mention of his years at Tulane and Broad, apparently is not aware of Section 67 of the Louisiana Criminal Code which is entitled THEFT. If he's serious about stopping crime in New Orleans, perhaps he should start with his
If we cannot respond to your sign request, please do not think that we are indifferent to your support which we value. We're confronted with a situation that our signs are coming down faster than we can put them up and hope you understand. Please continue your support of Ralph and talk about him to your friends.
Please feel free to share this information with your friends, neighbors, and other Ralph supporters.
So, as Capitelli supporters, ALTL & I are sorry if you are itching to have one of those beautiful navy blue signs in your front lawn, but can't because THEY'VE ALL BEEN STOLEN. But vote for Ralph!

When listening to Juvenile's "Set It Off," it always bothered me that he rapped about not going down on a woman. Like, really irritated me - you're a thug, but can't deal with a lady in your mouth? Lame. Maybe the project chicks didn't teach him right. Well, I guess if it ever comes down to it, I'm gonna have to go with Hollygrove boy over a Third Ward/Magnolia Projects boy.

Not only does New Orleans rank 24 out of 25 by Travel and Leisure Magazine in the category of "Most Attractive People" (only behind Philadelphia, omg), but we're also one of the top three murder capitals of the world, according to Foreign Policy. Travel and Leisure explored only cities in the United States, but New Orleans is the only U.S. city on the murder capitals list.
At least Travel and Leisure ranked our fine city number one for live music/bands, destination restaurants and ethnic food/cheap eats.

I love how John Kennedy's #1 criticism of Mary Landrieu is always that she is a Democrat. Like this website, showing that she votes with Barack Obama a lot. Wow!!
