NYT Article on Mary Landreau's Impending Defeat on Saturday

Original post made by Ragin Cajun, another community, on Dec 4, 2014

The über liberal New York Times has conceded defeat and has waved the White Flag of Surrender. My wife Mary is thrilled.

Of course the NYT deliberately spins the story to make it appear that the Democrats lost the south due to racial animosity when, of course, it is due to its departure from the center to the left.

"I am enjoying the global warming in NOLA where it is now 69 degrees at 7 PM"

ahhh, that humor of Lincoln/Frosty/Cajun/Hanl, et al...! We've missed ya! Good to see you have yet to figure out the difference between weather and global climate - you're a hallmark of consistency.

Consistently wrong, of course.

NOAA: October is the warmest month on record, globally: "the global temperature averaged across the world's land and ocean surfaces for October 2014 was the highest on record for the month, at 0.74°C above the 20th century average"

to your topic, from your link: "The timing of the demise of the Southern Democrat is not coincidental. It reflects a complete cycle of generational replacement in the post-Jim Crow era. Old loyalties to the Democratic Party have died along with the generation of white Southerners who came of age during the era of the Solid South, before Brown v. Board of Education, before the Civil Rights Act."

The NYT has published an article in today"s (December 5, 2014) To quote the NYT "pilloried at home for voting with the president, and has watched helplessly while her Democratic base has eroded like a cheap levee".

Now the Democrat Mayor of the Louisiana City of the city of Opelousas Don Cravins is caught on tape encouraging a crowd of Landreau supporters to engage in voter fraud “If you early voted, go vote again tomorrow. One more time’s not going to hurt.”

Then he tells the crowd not to worry because the District Attorney Earl Taylor, a Democrat, will be re-elected and will decline to prosecute the illegal voter fraud that he is encouraging the citizens of Louisiana to commit.

The Mayor's son is Mary Landreu's chief of staff--But only for 4 more weeks.
