Another Democrat Machine Going Down?

The people of Louisiana have taken a big step in the dismantling of another Democrat Machine. I predicted over a year ago that the Democrats of Louisiana would be facing trouble in the next Governor's election. GOP Bobby Jindal has made history by being the first man of Indian descent to become governor of one of the United States. He is the first non-white LA Governor since the Reconstruction. He is the youngest governor at 36 and has overcome the Louisiana Democrat machine to do it. During his campaign, Jindal was clear about the nest of corruption the Democrats had built in the state. According to the Washington Post:
"We've got a government that's out of control," he said in his stump speech. "We've got a government that spends our money without any regard. We're in the top five in having the most crooked politicians in America. We're going to change that."
Jindal is for lower taxes and against corruption. It will be fun to watch the rest of the Democrat machine in the state get dismantled. In my May 2006 post I stated:
We saw the overthrow of the Democrat machine in neighboring Georgia a few years ago. I think the LA. Dems should be quaking in their boots about now.
I have a feeling they are. Congratulations to Bobby Jindal on his win. Now if only we could dismantle the Democrat Machine in Chicago at the city level and Illinois at the state level.

    Nice looking guy and family.

    Still, so many Conservative Louisiana Democrats are as loyal to their Party as they are to LSU... And for the same reason... It's their team.

    But I hope you're right.

    Interesting how that worked out. Very glad to see it!

    I googled Jindal and there were tons of dirt raking websites about him. Frasypoo (who I have a link to on my website) is Indian and she said he probably won because even the Democrat Indians wanted him to win.
