Virginia signs her political death warrant:
Jay Batt gets endorsement from former rival Virginia Blanque
If she want's to jump in bed with the obnoxious, fat, rich guy because she needed her bar tab paid (that's metaphor people)...well...hey...you gotta do watcha gotta do. But the hangover will last forever...that will be the end of her political career or any future chance of getting elected to office.
The irony is I don't think Blanque's voters are gonna vote for Batt anyway...I think all this did was make them disappointed in her.
"To have the support of those who once opposed me is a tremendous statement," Batt said in a prepared statement. "I am both proud and humbled."
Humble ≠ Batt...ever. Proud, I believe....humble....not.
You know the thing that disturbs me more than the actual endorsement is the picture the TP posted with it....Batt has his hand over Mayor-elect Landrieu's heart, and the article is about an endorsement. That was a bad editorial call....it more than implies that Landrieu is supporting Batt. Why would you publish a picture of those two together when the story was about Blanque and Batt? That may even deserve a retraction or explanation....Landrieu has not endorsed Jay Batt in any way. They are in opposing political parties.
I'm not implying conspiracy, I'm saying it was a bad decision.
