A Baton Rouge reader blames the state GOP: I think you are missing the
bigger picture – the State Republican Party is a joke. This national talk of
a Republican realignment is just hot air unless it can be translated into
effective State Party organizations. With two low-key, non-controversial
candidates, this race became a State party fight and, as usual, the State
GOP had their ass handed to them. Let’s face it – the Democratic Party in
Louisiana has an organization built to win. until the State GOP becomes more
than a coffee social for rich, old women, we will continue to lose.
