Poor Mary trails in every poll for this Saturday's Senate runoff in Louisiana. The dynasty of the “Cajun Kennedys” is 99% assured of ending as the Pelican State electorate goes to the polls.
After three terms in office, Mary Landrieu has been consigned to a state of utter irrelevance. Her expected loss to Bill Cassidy will mark the end of an era in a state the Democratic Party was convinced it would own in perpetuity.
Three days before the 2014 mid-term election, Landrieu was asked by NBC’s Chuck Todd why The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer struggles in her state. Landrieu first said his energy policies run counter to Louisiana’s “pro-production” mindset, citing an angry response to his moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
Finding a pile of shit nearby, Mary stepped right in it making the excuse that if she lost her seat to Cassidy it would be because of racism and sexism.
“I’ll be very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It’s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place,” said Landrieu.
Insulting voters days ahead of an election will likely be her undoing.
After the mid-terms, Landrieu made a pathetic play for votes in the Senate by calling for a vote on the XL Keystone Pipeline. For six years, she and every other Democrat blocked the bill. Landrieu fooled no one with her purely political ploy.
They say she’s “gator bait” come Saturday. More likely, a loup garou is going to emerge from the bayou and spirit her away.
Buh-bye Mary. As we like to say in the South, “Bless her heart.”
