Yes, we all know that God wants dead babies.

1997 FBI video showing him stuffing $20,000 into his pocket in former Gov. Edwin Edwards' law office. Fields was not charged in the case that eventually sent Edwards to prison....

How on earth does this guy get caught on video stuffing 20 grand in his pocket and get off?

"After much consideration, numerous meetings, and extensive consultation with the Miss Cleo Pychic Hotline, I have decided to support the party nominee"

I heard on a local radio station today that the reason that Fields is now supporting Landrieu is that he received phone calls from Clinton and Jesse Jackson telling him that he'd better cooperate.

Cleo, like Torricelli, had a little visit from the Arkansas Mafia, in the person of william blythe, the impeached rapist.

His change of heart is not coincidence.

Senator Landrieu would have been better off with an endorsement by Miss Cleo

Paid Cleo the bucks, but looks like Cravins and Tarver are going to hold out for a little more. How typical!

Louisiana politics. Maybe it was "advertising costs" for campaigns for telling the Afro-American community all about the good deeds of "Fast Eddy" (jail bird Edwin Edwards).

Two polls have appeared on Freerepublic. One was an internal GOP poll that showed Terrell with a slight lead.

The other was a public poll that showed Terrell up by 48% to either 42% or 40% for Landrieu (I have to look it up). There were a few percent undecided.

In 1971, Edwin Washington Edwards unveiled his "Era of Excellence." The hapless Democrat Louisianians have been looking for the "excellence" every since. Pretty soon a few of them are going to figure out that they have been "had." But probably not before they get around to reelecting Mary Landrieu Snellings.

If this poll is right, I expect Mary to defer the rest of the campaign to John Breaux, who can figure out how to win it for her. Breaux has never lost a LA election, a record that Edwin Washington Edwards, his mentor now living in Fort Worth, cannot even match. People in LA "worship" John Breaux.

Bill Moyers is an ordained minister, I believe. He has a Masters of Divinity from some Baptist bible college in Texas. Go figure.

There have only been two polls released to the public. Wilson Research Strategies, a Republican firm, found Terrell leading 48-40, while Southeastern Louisiana State U. had Landrieu leading 51-36. Neither poll seems credible on its own - you're going to have to wait longer for confirmation.

And Donahue professes to be a born and bred Catholic. All cut from the same cloth.....self hating and afraid of their consciences.

Never too late late to make a contribution to Suzanne Terrell. Every little bit helps:
Suzie Terrell

Ah, yes. How did he get off.... Well, would ya believe they couldn't exactly prove or disprove how he "earned" the money ? That is the short version. Also, they weren't after Fields, they were after Edwards, his son and couple of their close associates.
