After learning that both Barney Franks (who eased through his own male prostitution scandal) and John Dingle (the guy who wants gas tax to increase by 50 cents a gallon) gave $2,000 each to Don Cazayoux, I decided to peruse his campaign finance report much further. I found that ACT Blue has raised $53,000 for Don Cazayoux, only raising more money for Andy Kopplin. Now I’m not one to falsely accuse anybody of racism so there’s no need in pointing out that the folks over at ACT BLUE prefer to give their money overwhelmingly to the white candidates ($131,315) than to the African American candidates ($3,055). I guess there’s no “affirmative action” for these guys.
In fact, there are other possible reasons why the ACT Blue donors are giving much more money to Don Cazayoux and Andy Kopplin than they are to Michael Jackson and Jason DeCuir. We here in Louisiana are all too familiar with Andy Kopplin, whose association with the Blanco administration pretty much disqualifies him from any job due to his experience with incompetence. So perhaps these liberals across the nation love incompetence, or they are just gullible folks so overzealous in their hatred of Bush that they simply overlooked all the failures of the Blanco administration, popping champagne bottles open as they watched people die on their televisions. That’s a possibility, maybe. Maybe their politics just superceded their compassion.
What is more probable, except to anybody who realizes that ACT BLUE donors gave nearly 43 times as much to the white candidates as they did the African American candidates in Louisiana’s sixth congressional district, is that Don Cazayoux is not the “Louisiana Democrat” that he makes himself out to be. Louisiana Democrats tend to be conservative nowadays, realizing that personal responsibility is far better than surrendering our freedoms a little more day by day.
That’s not your typical ACT BLUE Donor, as these guys are more in tuned with Barney Franks, Ted Kennedy, and Nancy Pelosi than they are with the normal Southern Democrat. Remember the treatment these folks gave Southern Democrat Zell Miller because he didn’t agree with them on the Iraq war?
The ACT BLUE donors know where their money is going, and it’s going not to a Louisiana Democrat like Michael Jackson, (nor could it find it’s way into Jason DeCuir’s warchest), it’s going to go to the guy who best suits their liberal needs, the guy who will advance their big government agenda. They want people who will support raising taxes on America’s poorest 98%. That’s who they’ll support, that is who they will get in Don Cazayoux.
