I tell you what folks, all that stuff you hear about how State Farm CEO Ed Rust Jr hates our own Congressman, Gene Taylor must be pure bull because if they were trying to beat him they sure as heck should NOT have given money to his Republican opponent, Steven Palazzo, especially out of Bloomington.
I don’t do much political blogging, at least in the classic sense, but with the silly season heating up the shots are both plentiful and cheap so I can’t resist and I’ll add Palazzo might as well be getting money from child molesters as from a home office State Farm Exec after the raping they put on a great number of people (read voters Steven) here on the coast after Katrina. We’re certain here at Slabbed Palazzo would do a bang up job representing Ed Rust in Congress.
The smart money is seeing this contest a bit differently.
Palazzo’s individual contributors take up one page while Gene’s take up 5 and include folks like Brett and Deanna Favre and pillars of the business community like Roy Deux and III, John Dane, Rick Carter, Cotton and Frank. Heck once upon a time even GOP Gulfport Mayor George Schloegel ponied up for Gene. People like winners in general and straight shooters like Gene in particular.
In any event I’ll have another one of these type posts for you Louisiana folks as it is getting awfully deep in the Senate race over there and not just deep in diapers. I will say I have faith in Louisiana’s voters not to send a hypocritical sack of shit like David Vitter back to the Senate. I’ll acknowledge in advance that faith may be misplaced.
