David Vitter’s Job Is Suddenly Less Secure

Posted by Phoenix Woman on October 22, 2007


As expected, Piyush “Bobby” Jindal won the election for governor of Louisiana, assisted for the most part by the deliberate efforts to keep black residents of New Orleans — who voted strongly Democratic — from returning to their homes after Hurricane Katrina.

One person who is probably not happy about this is Diaper Dave Vitter, the most prominent phone number in Debra Jeane “DC Madam” Palfrey’s little black book.

So long as a Democrat is governor, and can appoint a fellow Democrat to succeed Vitter, the national Republican Party won’t be pushing Vitter to leave.  But once a Republican is sworn in, which will happen in a few months, then Vitter is every bit as endangered as is his fellow Republican Senator Larry “Wide Stance” Craig of Idaho — a state which (you guessed it!) already has a Republican governor.

Meanwhile, the race is on to fill the congressional seat vacated by Jindal.  Gilda Reed is our gal.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
