After being under Democratic control for about a century, the biggest and most important change in Louisiana since Hurricane Katrina is that it’s now a Republican state.

Gov. Bobby Jindal is serving his second term as governor, and he and one of two senators and five of six representatives are all Republicans. Louisiana also voted for John McCain in the 2008 presidential election.Louisianans were witnesses to the incompetence of the Democrat-led government after the hurricane hit. They didn’t fall for the distortions, half-truths, etc., put out about President George W. Bush by the mainstream media. Many of these distortions are still being repeated today. So if you hear the Democrats and their willing accomplices in the media say how terribly Mr. Bush handled the Katrina situation, ask them why Louisiana switched to Mr. Bush’s party.
