BATON ROUGE -- Sen. Mary Landrieu, whose victory hopes hinge on being able to energize black voters, got a boost Saturday night from famed civil rights leader Jesse Jackson.

Jackson said Landrieu is the best U.S. Senate candidate to help improve the lot of poor people in Louisiana, one of the poorest states in the nation.

The Democraps are bringing in the Civil Rights Industry and Landrieu has only gone far left in the runoff. We more Republican big guns than Bush and Cheney and a huge turnout by the Conservative base to counter act socialist turnout in New Orleans and populist/statist turnout in the rural areas.

I'm just so glad Jesse "Action Shackson" Jackson came to LA to campaign for Mary "Brown Roots" Landrieu. She's toast! Your "help" will be greatly appreciated on December 7th, JJ! Wahoo!!!

We'll get it. We just need to get Bubba and the Gorebatross and McAwful to come down South to help Landrieu down in flames. And Suzanne Terrel has the greatest guy on her side the South calls one of its own: President Bush!!!

This will backfire on Dems; I am more sure than ever that Suzy Terrell will win.

Excellent. This should definitely drive the swing voters over to Terrell. Nothing like getting the public support of a truly reprehensible person, eh Mary? Bwahaha!

Jesse should endorse her several times between now and Dec. 7th, I think. Maybe he should tape a commercial. Maybe one with Bill Clinton in it too, hogging the camera and upstaging the black "leader". That would be a fine bit of subliminal advertising.

Friends, the Dems don't know to leave well enough alone. They're helping Dems in the South alright - with a good, stiff dose of good old-fashioned Arkancide.

Good point. However, I do remember someone (here on FR, of course) saying the law will not be in effect for this runoff. Louisiana's Gross State Product will probably double between now and the 7th.

For what it was worth, the "Reverend" also came into Houston on Nov. 3 to spend a great deal of time "endorsing" Tony Sanchez too. Tony got 40 percent.

Yes, I do remember now hearing something about how both sides can legally throw as much money as they like at this race.

And on that note, Terry MacAuliffe was really proud of raising three times as much money this year for a losing effort. Let's hope he's even prouder next month. :D

socialist turnout in New Orleans

Yes, New Orleans has been socialist for at least three decaded by nearly all measurements. A Republican has not even run for mayor there, I don't believe, since 1970. The parish often votes 6-1 and 7-1 Democrat.

What a smart move on Landreui's part, eh? HAHAHAHAHA.....

Nothing like sending a message to blacks in that state that the only time the white libs need you is election day! Are they feeling used yet?

My comment at #10 was not a swipe at Louisiana. My thoughts were that there is lots of money now flowing into the state. The local media outlets gotta be getting rich at least.

It's unclear how the endorsement from a liberal black civil rights leader will play with another critical voting bloc that Landrieu needs to win: moderate white Democrats.

Nonetheless, Jackson did his part to help endear her to black voters. He said that a "New South" is emerging in which old racial divisions are giving way to a more harmonious relationship between blacks and whites.

Well, then I think that bill clintoon and al gore should go down there and show their support too. That should do the trick, just like it did Florida and every other state they went to show support - leaving a deadly trail of 'RAT candidate losers and gleeful GOP winners !!

The perfect feather in McAwful's cap. If this turns out to be his batting average, he's have been booted from Major League Baseball already. But fortunately for him, liberals love and reward losers on the theory that nothing breeds success better than proven failure.

Actually, many Jackson picks have won, including former Sen. Wyche Fowler in GA (1986), Terry Sanford in NC (1986), Ernest F. Hollings in his native SC (1986, 1992, 1998), Landrieu in 1996, Cleland in GA in 1996, and of course the Clinton-Gore tickets in 1992 and 1996. But Jesse has been striking out lately.

I have to agree. Jackson is pretty much the "kiss of death" for Moon Landrieu's little girl.

My word, the Democrats are committing suicide. Jackson is a very polarising figure; also, if I'm not mistaken, many African Americans regard him as "yesterday's news".

The Landrieu camp said it had nothing to do with Jackson's appearance in Baton Rouge or his endorsement. But it could pay dividends for her Dec. 7 when black voter turnout will be critical to whether she can defeat Republican state Elections Commissioner Suzanne Haik Terrell.

I don't envy Landrieu. She desperately needs nearly 100% of the black vote and about 30% of the white vote to carry Louisiana and she has been struggling to get either. And now one of the most polarizing figures in American politics shows up and endorses her.

This may engergize some blacks, but it will more than likely energize the whites to vote against her in masses.

She needs to realize that it's breakfast time and she's toast.

Jesse getting out the black vote?

I would think that most blacks would rather pull white sheets over their heads rather than to be identified with that loser.

However, he added, all blacks should vote as a monolithic block...

My sources in the South tell me that Jackson has already impregnated Landrieu and that she is expecting mulatto twins. No wonder Jackson wants universal healthcare. His evil spawn are everywhere!

Jesse Jackass is irrelevant. I forgot about that racist before seeing this post. I forgot he was still alive.

I think most blacks really don't want to be associated with him. Well at least the smart ones don't. I don't think he represents the black population in a positive way at all. He, Al Sharpton and their ilk acutally "bring down" black people with their liberal lies.

Jesse "the jock", "knock 'em up" Jackson does whatever he pleases and will continue to do so as long as the Justice Dept. and the IRS are gutless to call him to account.

No surprises here!

"If you are concerned about your economic interests, vote for Mary Landrieu," Jackson said at an impromptu news conference at the Sheraton Hotel.

This is a pretty amazing statement... Haven't the Demo/Commies been telling us for years that it was wrong to "vote your pocketbook", and that instead you should take the moral high ground and vote for "what is right" even if it hurts you economically?

(Of course I believe that is a false choice, because quite often voting for what helps you is also the morally correct position - but it's interesting to see Jackson's hypocrisy on parade yet again)

Je$$e HiJack$on had to get paid by someone to fly first class to La. and have his usual big white limo waiting for him.

Pray that the rats send the Clintoons, Jake Reno, Peloshi and the Da$$hole down to campaign for Landrieu. Then they all attack President Bush by calling him dumb and being mean to their nice Buddy, Uncle Saddam.

Landrieu had best stay out of any airplanes if her poll numbers drop.

But Jesse has been striking out lately.

That's because there are more media outlets than the Big Three and CNN these days. The New Media apparently isn't in bed with the so called 'Civil Rights Leaders' as the other Media has been for years. As a result, The Rev. Jackson's press hasn't been as 'glowing' as it has been in the past. People are beginning to recognize him for what he truly is, a race-baiting extortionist! So if he endorses someone for office, folks will look at that person the way they look at Jesse; that can't be a good thing for that candidate!
