Oh, hell yes.

I don’t have a huge problem with Vitter, but the thought of a cigar chomping General Honore headed to the senate is just too awesome.

LTG (R) Honore is just what the US Senate needs. A good infantryman to lead that august body from the morass of bs in which it is currently mired. With Vitter’s zipper problems, LTG Honore will smoke Vitter’s fourth point of contact in the primary.

The talk show host mantra (and ours) that we need average American Citizens not Career Politician's is starting to gel. Not to sound like Glenn or Mark, but it is about the Constitution and common sense. If The General runs, my guess his coffers will fill with small donations from the likes of us..

Wow, I am beginning to think the real action will be in the Senate. I think we will say goodbye to Corzine, Dodd, Specter and Reid. Now maybe Honorae to fill a slot with hoepfully more of a conservative, and the question remains who will replace Kennedy (will they change the law again or get a supreme court challenge) No to mention Byrd's frail health.

You don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. Vitter has a strong following in Louisiana and a good conservative voting record. Throwing out a sure conservative for an unknown is foolish politics. I agree with the other poster - let the General cool his heals and go after Landrieu.

I hope he does run against him. Vitter is compromised it is better to replace him.

I live in Louisiana and I think you’re nuts! Vitter has been a great senator, despite his moral failure (which we all have). Good God, here we have the exact kind of conservative Senator we want and now some want to defeat him. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

Vitter is a diaper wearing, wh*re visiting RINO who just became conservative recently when he realized he was up for re-election.

Let’s throw this diaper wearing baby out with the bathwater and not be stuck on stupid!

Bring it on General!

Vitter’s moral lapse is problematic, but he has been consistent on all the important issues. If General Honore wants to serve in the Senate, I’d rather see him go up against Landrieu.

interesting to see how many people will declare their support for Honore, before they see a single position on an issue from him.

The really disturbing thing is that the comment that all he has to say is "Stuck on stupid and Vitter is toast," is probably right. It won't matter what his politics are, we will see another cult of personality arise.

Certainly he is deserving of praise for the way he came into South Louisiana and straightend out that mess, but again that was simply making chaos respond to military discipline and regimentation...not sufficient for me to support him without knowing his ideology.

I will say this however, at least he would have the management skills to deal with problems...unlike the current occupant of the White House.
