New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Son of Moon - Brother of Mary, made a national production out of tearing down several historic monuments, including Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of the U.S. and hero of the The Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812. The removal of other 100 year old historic statues, Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and P.G.T. Beauregard, made Landrieu into a hero of the "Ignorance is Strength" American Taliban who seek to erase the history that isn’t compatible with their radical sensitivities.
But to those with finely-tuned political antennae and top shelf bullshit detectors it was clear that Landrieu’s pandering and demagoguery had less to do with any sincere conviction and everything to do with getting noticed, (Mitch even got himself a Black Mistress) and launching a career in Democratic party politics on the national level. That is exactly what is happening.
"Democrats looking for new blood to revitalize their party are taking a close look at New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, who is suddenly being discussed as a dark-horse presidential nominee. That Landrieu is a new face from outside Washington makes him even more intriguing to hard-nosed Democratic strategists. "I find him to be an incredibly fascinating political figure,” said Jamal Simmons, one of the Washington Democrats turning an eye toward Landrieu. When you think who are the non-Washington figures in the left that ought to have a say in where we go, I think a lot of people would point to him. Now, as the party looks to rebuild, Democrats say Landrieu and other non-establishment politicians like him could be the future of the party." - The HillBut Mayor Mitch has several hurdles to overcome, not the least of which is being a white male in a party that has embraced identity politics as religious dogma. The only white male who has a chance would be Uncle Joe Biden who has coyly hinted at a desire to run. That however would put him at odds with those on the far left who will settle for nothing less than a woman – or a minority – as a candidate (unless it’s Hillary) in 2020.
The early handicapping favors freshman California Senator Kamala "I Slept My Way to the Top" Harris who has both the right pigmentation and a vajayjay, although she would have to tone down her bitch on wheels angry black woman act to appeal to more than the party base.
So Stay Tuned. As everyone should know by now, Louisiana is notorious for its long line of flamboyantly slimy politicians. Mitch is just our latest edition.
