Glass houses

So, this arrived in my mailbox yesterday:

nothing like understatement to get my attention

I’m thrilled that Egana’s challenger in the run-off for House Representative/District 97, J. P. Morrell–son of perhaps the dumbest, orneriest, most egomaniacal, most corrupt politician Louisiana has ever seen–chose to take the high road this election season.

    Before Pratt lost to Head, she sent out a crazy postcard showing Heads’ abandoned house that was not yet repaired. Pratt failed to mention that Head bought the house in a blighted tax situation, and had to wait three years for the owner to become completely delinquent. She thought she could use half truths to win.

    We had Mr. Egana on one of our local shows to discuss the race. The host would ask a question, Mr. Egana would then look for a response on his website. He actually was reading his own website word for word during a live radio interview. We cut it off very short. Mr. Egana is also Oliver Thomas’ hand picked canidate for District 97. So we have a choice of no one. A political family/dynasty in Morell or a fool who cannot even answer questions without a cheat sheet. But the recovery is going great according to Mayor Noggin

    I will be so thankful and happy after the elections are over so I won’t have to endure the over-the-top political ads from both sides of the political aisle. At least for another year. The downside will be the endless political analysis that’s going to occur and last for weeks and weeks following the November elections. And depending on who wins, how much crowing/whining will occur.

    lets see oliver puppet or morrell heir?

    man this election sucks ass.

    did you get the mailer today showing j.p. as the “overseer” of grass cutting?

    there was one claim in that flyer that seemed blantently bullshit.

    “he was offered scholarships to attend law schools across the u.s. but jp wanted to return home. he took out loans and paid his own way through tulane university school of law.

    this is gotta be bullshit. what kid of a louisiana politican has ever paid tuition at tulane?

    if anybody can prove this true i might have to vote for this little shit.

    i cant make up my mind as to who is actually the lesser of the two evils here.

    man this election sucks.

    rick in the 8th ward.

    I went to undergrad with Jp at Spring Hill College. I have been friends with him for going on 8 years now. I can tell tell you that I know for a fact that he has student loans he has to deal with from both SHC and Tulane. Knowing what I know of him and who he is, I do believe that he deserves a chance as I have had conversations with him about situations and can see his determination and belief that he can help. You can believe what you will, but he is a good person trying to help.
