“I tawt I taw a puddy tat!” That was my first thought when I saw the newspaper headline about Sen. Mary Landrieu “blasting” Gov. Bobby Jindal.

How long has Jindal been in office? My next thought was, “When is she up for re-election?”

I understand though. It is difficult to be a Democrat in the state of Louisiana. When someone talks like the noise of a machine gun, it does not mean that everything he/she says is gospel or infallible. It just most probably means that it is a lot of noise.

My hope is that some bright political science majors at our colleges will soon think about running for office wearing the banner of “The Smart Party.”
