    The Right Scoop ^ | 12/14/2013 | Caleb Howe
    On Fox News’ Hannity on Wednesday, Sean had on two guests to discuss the idea of apartheid in America: civil rights attorney and talk show host Leo Terrell, and conservative commentator and columnist Crystal Wright. The guests were asked to comment on two clips, one of Chris Matthews suggesting apartheid leadership in South Africa were more patriotic than the GOP in the United States, and the other of Jesse Jackson claiming “apartheid remains in America.” Leo Terrell’s comments, both about the clip and regarding his colleague Crystal were far less than cordial, and in fact got downright ugly.

    Controversial Dallas Player Tells Authorities He Overdosed On Painkillers (CBS News) DALLAS Controversial Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens has told police he tried to kill himself by overdosing on pain medication, even putting two more pills into his mouth after a friend intervened. A Dallas police report released Wednesday morning said Owens told his friend "that he was depressed." The friend, who is not identified in the report, "noticed that (his) prescription pain medication was empty and observed (Owens) putting two pills in his mouth," the police report said.

During the lead-up to the world's biggest sporting extravaganza, the Super Bowl, Donovan McNabb fires off a salvo for the world to hear: Terrell Owens' criticism of his quarterbacking skills last season was "black-on-black crime." Black-on-black crime? A careless choice of words, given the daily tragedies in Philadelphia and other cities, or intentionally loaded? Or just a figure of speech?

    Political State report ^ | June 17, 2003 | by R Godwin
    State Elections Commissioner Suzie Terrell and state Representative Tony Perkins, both failed Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate last year, will seek statewide office in this fall's elections. Terrell, who lost 52 to 48 percent to U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, says she will run for attorney general. Currently, Richard Ieyoub (D) holds the positon, but is running for governor. Terrell is a mixed big, with high name recognition and access to top GOP fundraisers, but the negative tone of last year's Senate race will likely have taken its toll on her. The only other candidate in the race is Orleans...

While Terrell napped on Dec. 7, Landrieu "was shaking hands at McDonalds," HE reported. Moreover, the Landrieu campaigner, Donna Brazile, was in the process of organizing her turnout of black voters. Records indicate that black turnout actually INCREASED on Dec. 7, compared to Nov. 5, in LA, whereas white turnout DECLINED. HE reported that "many black ministers worked hard to turn out black voters, not an easy job...

The Terrell campaign pulled in Vice-President Dick Cheney, Senator J.C. Watts of Oklahoma and Mississippi Senator Trent Lott, the anticipated Senate majority leader. Even President George W.

But Terrell, who came from nowhere to nearly defeat incumbent U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in Saturday's election, has not ruled out running for governor in 2003.

He wanted to know why Ambassador Alan Keyes wasn't down there campaigning for Terrell. Marr said he had spoken to Amabassador Keyes as recently as last night.

    When Republicans woke up on November 6, they were overcome with the joy of knowing that their party had once again captured the US Senate. They had lost the Senate 16 months earlier when RINO (Republican in name only) Senator Jim Jeffords of Vermont decided to abandon the Republican Party and cut a deal with Tom Daschle. Election day gave Republicans a 51-seat majority and a chance to move their agenda through the US Senate. I have noticed that many Republicans delight in the assumption that they will control the Senate for the next 2 years. I'm not that optimistic....

    Here are my thoughts on where a state that carries Bush by 10% can't throw out a left wing Senator. 1. The Terrell campaign. I think Terrell was the best candidate to defeat Landrieu. However, I think her campaign was run extremely poorly. Her campaign manager should be shot for losing this election (more on this below). 2. The campaign. The negative ads should have stopped the day Bush stomped for Terrell. Louisianians are a funny bunch, they don't like outsiders dictating their politics. The Republicans attacked Landrieu for being a "Washington insider" but towards the end, many people I...

    Okay Louisiana Freepers, we were beaten tonight in both races. However, we have state elections coming up next year. The Governorship, all cabinet offices, and most if not all the legislature are up next year. We need to help develop a strategy to hold the Governorship, take a majority of the cabinet offices, decrease the Rat majority in the State House, and possibly take the State Senate. The first thing we need to do is stop battling among ourselves and stop allowing traitors like Coulon do damage in important races. Your thoughts please.

    Republican candidate Suzanne Terrell has a very good chance of defeating Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu in Saturday’s runoff. Even with the polls mixed on the chances of the victory, the White House tells Washington Whispers that victory is almost definite if the candidate doesn’t “screw up” and if there is sufficient money for some last minuet advertising. For these specific reasons the GOP is sending out bulletins asking for contributions and in a hurry. Virginia Senator George Allen has to ask these hurried donors, “While I hate to ask, can I count on you again?” As the incoming Chairman...

    It’s crunch time! With the runoff just one day away, all the last minute advertising and campaigning can only help the candidates in their attempts to be elected or reelected. However careful analysis of the many polls reveals that Terrell’s win is in the bag. According to Staten Island political analyst Dr. Kevin Collins, a new “private” poll leaked by Terrell has her in the lead by three. This is good for new for Terrell because this poll was taken before the Bush visit on Tuesday. “The Bush bounce,” could be anywhere from four to six points. Another poll taken...

    Dec. 6 — The Democrats lost control of the Senate in the Nov. 5 elections, but have a lot more to lose Saturday if Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu is defeated by her Republican challenger, Suzanne Haik Terrell. A Terrell victory would be fresh evidence that the Republicans are closer to cementing their status as the dominant party in the South, making any Democratic bid for the White House in 2004 more difficult. NO DEMOCRATIC presidential candidate has ever won the White House without winning at least a few Southern states. If Al Gore had gotten the electoral votes of just...

    WWL TV Eyewitness News 6PM broadcast | none
    Just saw WWL-TV (channel four here in New Orleans) has a reporter at the Municipal Auditorium for Mary Landrieu's campaign rally. Rally was to start at 6 PM featuring a host of local officials (Mayor Nagin will be there among others), with campaign workers expecting 1,500 to 2,000 folks cheering on Mary. One problem. Nobody showed up! The WWL camera panned the floor of the auditorium and there were maybe 5 people there LOL. So much for Mary getting out the black vote, eh? This election is gonna be a blowout. My prediction is Suzie wins with just above 60%...

    It looks like the Republicans are poised to finish off the 2002 election by picking up one more Democratic Senate seat for a total pickup of three seats. While the two most recent polls (independent polls) both show Landrieu ahead by one and two points, we think Terrell is well positioned for victory this Saturday. The most recent poll by Mason-Dixon, taken Monday and Tuesday of this week, shows an eight point bump for Terrell on Tuesday. The 378 voters questioned Monday night supported Landrieu 48%-43%, but the 247 people interviewed Tuesday night supported Terrell 49%-46%. Not coincidentally President Bush...

Mary Landrieu, a Democrat, has a slight edge over Republican challenger Suzanne Haik Terrell going into Saturday's runoff in a poll taken this week for Louisiana's Gannett newspapers.

    President's visit may have boosted Terrell John Hill / Louisiana Gannett News Posted on December 5, 2002 BATON ROUGE - They call it the "million-dollar shot" - that pose of President George W. Bush emerging from Air Force One with his favored Republican candidate. That presidential pose may have paid off in Louisiana on Tuesday as it did in other states this election year. Republican U.S. Senate candidate Suzanne Haik Terrell got a big boost from Bush's campaign stops with her in Shreveport and New Orleans, according to a poll taken for Louisiana's Gannett newspapers.

John Breaux, D-Crowley, who plans to stump for Landrieu through Saturday's runoff election. "They had fancy china and silverware, and we had plastic forks -- but guess what? Our food was better," Breaux said. Landrieu noted that many of the dock workers at her luncheon lost their jobs because of a 30-percent tax increase on imported steel pushed by the Bush administration and Republican leaders. Landrieu warned that...
