Kathleen Blanco Will Not Run For Reelection

by Kevin

According to, Louisiana’s so-called governor, Kathleen Blanco, will not seek reelection. Even she saw the handwriting on the wall and saw she had no chance in hell at winning. The people of New Orleans may be stupid enough to reelect Ray Nagin and Bill Jefferson, but the people of Louisiana as a whole are not as stupid as the average New Orleans voter.

The biggest loser, other than Blanco, is of course the leading Republican candidate for governor, Bobby Jindal. He will now actually have to face a competitive campaign, something that he’s not that good at, instead of the cake walk he would have against Blanco.

  1. Never underestimate the stupidity of the Louisiana citizens. The smart ones all leave, only to return to Baton Rouge on Saturday nights.

  2. Blanco won’t run because she is incompetent and showed her incompetency during the Katrina mess. Being a former resident of that state for 28 years I still shake my head at the morons that my former state elects into office (Nagin, Blanco, Landrieux, etc…)

    When resorting to ad hominem attacks like name calling, learn to spell the name at least. – it’s Mary Landreau
