Folks I have a hard time deciding which kind of sack of shit politico I hate worse, straight out crooks like Billy Nungesser or professional scapegoaters like John LaBruzzo that have no problem scapegoating minorities or the less fortunate to advance their personal political ambitions. Both types are dangerous just in different ways.
And then we have Bucktown’s John LaBruzzo. It is no surprise the people who gave David Duke to the political world would elect a right-wing nut to represent them. It is just that you’d think after the Duke disaster they would at least elect a right-wing nut that represented their interest in the legislature. As luck would have it Hammerman at the T-P wrote a lengthy article on the incumbent v incumbent battle involving Nick Larusso and John LaBruzzo and it does not cast LaBruzzo in a good light, especially the dishonest campaigning involving Larusso’s service in the military. And when a pol like, Senator Danny “Boob” Martiny washes his hands of a candidate it is saying something. Simply put LaBruzzo wasn’t redistricted into the race against Larusso by accident folks as even the most ardent right-wing nuts want him gone from the legislature.
Stay tuned folks as Slabbed will be introducing a new series of posts called “identify the candidate” that we’ll kick off with an able-bodied guy with a preference for using handicapped parking.
The folks in Plaquemines Parish Louisiana have a special talent for electing crooked miscreants to office and indeed we have featured the infamous Billy Nungesser Jr. on these pages several times for being a lying, thieving sack of shit but little did we know Sheriff Jiff Hingle was giving lessons on how to loot campaign cash and bill expenses multiple places.

So there I was watching the morning show on WWL early one morning last week with my trusty canine companion when the poor pooch had the misfortune of being on the receiving end of my coffee spew that roughly coincided with airing of a teaser for an Eric Paulsen report on Bull Durham himself that wowuld be airing on the 10:00PM news!
I immediately knew there would be a post which covered the “coverage” but life’s travails, trials and tribulations have focused my attention elsewhere so the post would have to wait until today.
Paulsen, whom we introduced to the Slabbed Nation a few weeks ago via Paulsen v State Farm and his lawyer/friends, Danny Abel and Carl Finley, got their asses kicked in Federal Court and rightfully so. What is amazing to me as moderator of Slabbed is that State Farm didn’t tip insurance industry shill David Rossmiller about the case as he had a knack for receiving tips on the low hanging fruit but such is our gain here on Slabbed for a number of reasons. Lest I digress.
I would submit Paulsen was the natural choice to pump the latest Costner scheme IMHO. He is plugged into the old Aaron Broussard political network for example via Abel and company and he has demonstrated a fantastic ability to check whatever formal journalism training he has received whenever there is the need for a shill rather than a journalist as I think his latest story on Costner illustrates:
Whether you can him by my pet name Nunny or Billy Nungesser it has been clear to me since the oil spill that Plaquemines Parish Prez Billy Nungesser is a corrupt sack of shit. According to Lee Zurich at Fox 8 it appears the Feds are thinking the same thing and it goes beyond trying to stiff Gidget out of her prostitution tab. If the Feds are looking at Nunny I’d say there is also a good chance there is also a Jack Stevens in the woodpile too.
