South Rises Again: Mary Landrieu among the Deposed
By John W. Lillpop
In a stunning and fitting conclusion to the wave of Republican victories which puts the US Congress back under majority control of real Americans, voters in Louisiana gave Obama sycophant Mary Landrieu her walking papers and otherwise purged Democrat politicians from the whole of Dixie!
Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy has denied Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana a fourth term, calling his Senate victory "the exclamation point" on midterm elections that put Republicans in charge on Capitol Hill for President Barack Obama's last two years in office.
With nearly all votes counted, unofficial returns showed Cassidy with a commanding victory in Saturday's runoff as he ousted the last of the Senate's Deep South Democrats. In the South, Democrats will be left without a single U.S. senator or governor across nine states stretching from the Carolinas to Texas.
"This victory happened because people in Louisiana voted for a government that serves us, that does not tell us what to do," Cassidy said in Baton Rouge, the state capital.
Following Cassidy's victory, Republicans will hold 54 seats when the Senate convenes in January, nine more than they have now.
Republican victories in two Louisiana House districts on Saturday - including the seat Cassidy now holds - ensure at least 246 seats, compared to 188 for Democrats, the largest GOP advantage since the Truman administration after World War II. An Arizona recount leaves one House race still outstanding.”
The Deep South rises again---just in time for the 2nd Civil War?
