re: Edwin Edwards gets a standing ovation from the legislature


And people want to give those clowns in the legislature the right to say what a woman does with her body or say so over any gun control issues? Any who stood up & applauded him has the morals of a whore. As that is what EWE was. And Alario is no better. How he stayed out of prison is unbelievable.

No doubt he was bad for the state, but in person, he's a very likeable man. A quick wit goes a long way in politics.

In the end, I'm not so sure Jindal's legacy will be that much better.

Louisiana's like a battered wife when it comes to that a-hole. He fricked Louisiana over countless ways and left it near destitute while lining his own pockets (and those of his friends), but the masses love him anyway.


Nailed it.

Didn't he mange to get our state constitution lobotomized to the point that it's fricking difficult to change it and it's hard to make cuts anywhere?

hit, Huey Long was corrupt as all get out, but at least he had something to show for it. Huey was gonna get his, but the State (and the citizens) was going to benefit as well.

Just as clownish as Jeauxtard....another criminal who's descendants are still benefiting from his thieving ways....and no one has the balls to do anything about it.


This. I would consider the Long's wealth "fruit of the poisonous tree." Huey was a criminal and a thief who should have rotted in prison. To bad he became a hero and a martyr. The entire Long family should all die in poverty, including the little twirp who's developing "Long Farm" off Barringer-Foreman Road.

Edwin Edwards is responsible for the current higher education budget issues.

Yes, but if our current pipsqueak in chief actually gave a damn and was a real leader, he could call for a constitutional convention to redo Edwards' 1974 constitution.

re: Edwin Edwards gets a standing ovation from the legislature


As for EWE being "a likeable guy". Go ask all those under educated land owners in SW La who trusted him back in the early 60's to represent them in their oil & gas royalty negotiations with the oil companies. As one of the very few French speaking attys at the time, EWE would insist on one copy of the lease being written in French & another, for the company, in English. Needless to say, the ones the landowners got, in French, was different than the official one they signed at EWE's recommendation. He raped them for hundreds of thousands of dollars. My dad was a landman & he said EWE pulled crap like this all the time. So when EWE gives a speech like he did last wk, bout protecting the poor & the uneducated.................. he's a pure slimbag.

Yes. I have been a Jindal supporter, but I've also been disappointed in his performance. He was the one who had the public support and mandate to get this accomplished and he failed - the instant he supported the legislative pay raises he lost his mandate.
