Below the Mason-Dixon
One of the first things that Republican Secretary of State Jay Dardenne did after taking office was to immediately purge 86,000 voters from the rolls, 75% of which were Democrats. Now, he has engaged the assistance of the Republican Party Chairman to oppose legislation that would allow many of the displaced Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita storm victims from participating in the upcoming election process.Nothing like a state's chief election management officer inhibiting democracy to endear him to the masses.

So, let's sum up. Mary Landrieu is the most vulnerable Democratic Senator in recent history. Who do the Republicans have to challenge her? Hmmmm... Bobby Jindal is running for Governor. GOP Congressmen Charles Boustany and Jim McCrery have both taken their names out of the running. GOP Congressman Richard Baker has a whopping $66,000 cash-on-hand. And Jay Dardenne, who is already polling significantly behind the vulnerable Landrieu, is embarrassing himself. In fact, the only Republicans who have demonstrated any interest are Woody Jenkins and Suzanne Haik Terrell, the two Republicans Landrieu has already defeated. It's like the LA-GOP and NRSC are standing at a microphone mumbling, "Is this thing on?"
