Ding Dong the bitch is dead.
The rumor has been floating, but I got a phone call from about as good a source as you’ll get in this state.
Gov. Kathleen Blanco, the bungling incompetent worthless excuse for a governor has decided that losing by 30 points in the election is too much to face, so she’s bailing out.
It will be confirmed soon enough.
Update: Lest you think I’m happy, I’m not. I was looking forward to her public humiliation on election day. And that’s what it would have been. Not a thumping, not a landslide but electoral humiliation. Sadly, I’ll never get that satisfaction.
John Breaux will probably try to take her place but (unless the Dem party finds a sympathetic judge) he is legally no longer a resident of the state.
Bobby Jindal is a 20 point favorite over anyone the Dems can find.
Update 2: But no, I’m not bitter. 😉
Update 3 Confirmed!
UPDATE FOUR!!!! THAT WAS FAST! The LA Rep party is ALREADY running anti Breaux commercials. Just 5 minutes after Blanco announced she was out… they already had the commercial cut and ready to run during the SAME newscast. WOW..
