• WAR ON WOMEN? Democrats Dump Mary Landrieu Ahead Of Her Runoff Election

    Mary Landrieu is expected to be defeated when Louisiana voters head back to the polls on December 6th. And the Democratic bean counters know it.

    The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee canceled its advertising reservations for Landrieu ahead of her runoff election, Politico reported Thursday:

    The committee canceled all broadcast buys planned from Monday through Dec. 6 in the state’s five major media markets, three sources tracking the air war told POLITICO. That’s about $1.6 million worth of time. The DSCC is in the process of canceling an additional $275,000 in cable placements, according to buyer sources.

    The Democrats’ fears that Mary Landrieu will be defeated in December are palpable.

    Landrieu spokesman Fabien Levy said, “Our campaign has never been about money or the party, but fighting for the people of Louisiana and delivering for them time and time again, despite the gridlock in Washington. We have the passion and energy necessary for victory on December 6, and are confident we will have the necessary resources from Louisiana voters to win.”

    You can have all the “passion and energy” in the world Mr. Levy. But in truth, Mary Landriue just doesn’t have enough votes.

    Mary Landrieu garnered about 42 percent of the vote or about 618,840 votes on election night. However, her three Republican opponents received more than 800,000 votes. So the math is easy.  

    Sen. Mary Landrieu became despicably desperate ahead of the election. She reached a new low when she said that Barack Obama is unpopular in Louisiana because “the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans” or woman.

    She was blasted by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for those comments.
