Tell us how crowded/not crowded it was when you went to vote!

Did you see voter fraud and what is the talk about exit polling and the possible outcome?

Saturday... heh... this should be good.

I wonder if Landrieu will ask for the polls to be open for another 24 hours?

Maybe Mary saved all her money for the bribes and voter fraud to come.

I read that Bubba stayed away, but Marxine Waters was campaigning for Mary........something the media tried to keep under the radar screen for fear of keeping the white voters away from Mary.

Depends on what kind of hunting you're talking about, and the geographical area. For instance, duck season in the East Zone closed last week and won't open again until next Saturday.

Suffice it to say I DON'T share your glee at the fact LSU's not playing for the SEC championship. I've noticed several posts of this nature in the past week by people here and it's really rubbed me the wrong way...We take our football seriously here.

If your candidate's fortunes turn on whether or not a football team is playing that day, maybe you need a stronger candidate.

I didn't mean the comment as a football partisan, just the fact that a whole lot of fans (GOP voters) might have been in Atlanta today!

It wasn't crowded at all at 7:30 a.m. at the place I vote in Southwest Louisiana. There's been very little excitement in this area for Landrieu, just the usual assortment of union officials, trial lawyers, elected officials wanting federal handouts, and not as much black support as usual. In fact the blacks I work with who have mentioned it told me they dont like Landrieu and at least one said he is voting for Terrell.

It is cold!

Please define "cold" to one raised in Wisconsin now living in Arizona. 30's? What is the forecast for the day?

Thanks in advance.

Had a house in the 6000 block of Vicksburg back in 84 to 87. How's the 'hood.' Streets still beyond belief.

Were you there for the freeze in 85 or 86 when it got down to 9 degrees and the power plants froze. Remember huddled (before kids) around the gas stove. Great memeries! Was there on business on Wednesday and Thursday. Crawfish are back a Yeager's, and damn good.

I wonder if the democrat dead have risen for their traditional vote yet? The rat party may have to keep the polls open for a long time to accommodate them!

I'm expecting 5 million votes to be cast today in a state with 2 million registered voters. Individuals who voted early and often for Landrieu today include:

Louis Armstrong
Hale ("Anybody Looking for Me?") Boggs
Jim Garrison
Andrew Jackson
Mahalia Jackson
Jean Lafitte
Earl Long
Huey Long
Pistol Pete Maravich
Carlos ("Livarsi `na pietra di la scarpa!") Marcello
Jelly Roll Morton
Lee Harvey Oswald

...and that was just in one half hour in one precinct!

But it's not necessarily that simple. Landrieu is an LSU alum, and that counts for something to certain LSU people, particularly since Terrell's a Tulane grad. The antipathy between the two schools is such that there are people in this state who simply will not vote for an alumnus of one school or the other, regardless of party or ideology. In a close race, little things like that count.

LOL! 'The usual assortment of Union Leaders, Trial Lawyers and Elected officials waiting for a handout'

Sounds like a John Grisham novel..

Sreets still horrible! People that visit from out of town are horrified by them. I still love Lakeview though!

Fortunately I moved here from Baton Rouge right after that freeze.

Thanks!

I couldn't see living the rest of my life shivering in Wisconsin either!

I won't ask you if your 4 kittys voted ... we don't DO THAT sort of thing! (My dog does vote in some of the polls on FR threads, tho'!)

I can't say whether it would or it wouldn't. I'm just saying that it's wrong to automatically assume every LSU alumnus/supporter is a Terrell voter. I personally know several who are strong for Landrieu.

Things are complicated here, and the interest groups don't always line up the way you'd think.

In the small town where I live, both candidates came through a few days apart. I went to both rallies, and I saw a LOT of the same people at both. I'm sure Landrieu's and Terrell's staffers were very pleased with the response. But a lot of the crowd (maybe the majority) were just there for the show. Who knows how they're really going to vote.

It may be a nail biter. But I won't be surprised if EITHER Landrieu or Terrell runs away with it by five points or more.

I saw nothing in LA newspapers on the Internet about Maxine Waters appearing in LA. It could be that LA reporters did not know who she is and did not report accordingly. It could also be that many LA blacks do not know this liberal CA congresswoman at all.

Yes, there is a lesser degree of rivalry of the kind that you mentioned between LSU and Tulane in TX -- between UT (Austin) and TAMU (College Station). Rick Perry is the FIRST TAMU graduate to be governor. John Sharp is also a TAMU alumnus. I don't know about Dewhurst. In a close election, football rivalries could matter to 2,000 voters.

and LSU is how many times bigger than Tulane? Also, I'd assume a higher % of LSU grads are from and stay in state. Do you know what percentage of the voters both schools' grads, collectively, represent?

I don't know about Maravich. It is possible that he was conservative, but most of the others you listed are either liberal or Democrat, or both. Andrew Jackson was the Democrat patriarch whose liberalism took the form of autocracy and also hatred of Indians. Put that in your pipe, SD Indians!

Checking in on this thread had whetted my apetite for some shrimp gumbo. I'm off to the golf course for a day of Texas December golf, but before I leave I will place my request with She Who Must Be Obeyed Or At Least Cajoled, that I be greeted about 6:00 o'clock P.M. with a big ole steaming bowl of shrimp gumbo over rice. I will then pop a top on a cold one, rip off a chunk of French bread, and check this very thread (which will have hundreds of replies by then).

I imagine by about 8:30 or 9:00 it will be damn near official -- Landrieu out on her a$$.

BTW, did you see any used pizza boxes from Chicage with ballots spilling out of 'em?

This would be an indication that the Illinois vote-manufacturing form of Daley and Sons, the nation's oldest and largest manufacturer of Democrat votes, was speed-dialed by the desperate Landrieu people late last night.

How do the Daley's do it you might ask? They are so adept at their business that they actually manufacture votes out of thin air through a secret, patented process.
