Edwin Edwards gets a standing ovation from the legislature

Kind of surprised, but then again, kind of not surprised. May be just me but it seems like all the old politicians trying to hold on to power end up in the state Senate. Does the guy who more or less is responsible for the state's stagnant growth really deserve a standing ovation?

Louisiana hasn't grown up.

Edwards had schemes all over the state. He has to be one of the worst politicians ever to serve office in the US.

Rolfe McCollister makes the same point.

All the dirty old men at the Capital are jealous and the women are hopeful.

Not my problem and don't care who he slept with, the fact is many other southern states, Georgia, Alabama, Tennesse, North Carolina, etc. have grown while Louisiana has not, he was a four time governor who had allies in the legislature even when he was not in office. The state's lack of growth is mostly due to him and he gets a standing ovation from these fools.

He also made the statement yesterday he wanted John Alario to run for Governor.

That's all I need to know about Jindal's hand-picked Senate Prez.

Can he just fricking expire already?

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.

Shit, 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. EWE was just about EWE, and frick Louisiana.

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.

Sure, why not?

I mean, the Crowley Rice Festival people named him grand marshal before he was even released. Why can't you be so understanding and thankful for his cronyism?
