Please don't go 

And now something completely different. A topic dear to my heart - Go Cups. Lafayette City-Parish Council is bringing up an ordinance tonight (for the second time) that would ban Go Cups from downtown bars. All logical-seeming arguments about reckless endangerment aside, go cups are a thing I would be quite sad to see go. I actually continue to use the argument that "I didn't know it isn't legal everywhere" when I walk out of a bar in any other state with drink in hand. Shameless, and seldom works, but at least they tend to laugh it off.

There's a story about it at the Independent: Will the 'go cup' ban go? It mentions an unnamed downtown business that is lobbying for the ban, and I've heard it is a certain Group that starts with an R and rhymes with Wusso. Why they are so passionate about eliminating go cups has yet to be determined, but I'll be watching for news on tonight's session.

What are they thinking? 

Since Mr. Prado has decided to repeatedly prod me about a post, I'm gonna double up.

I've noticed a bit of a parallel in my home state and current residence lately - the fact that the rest of the nation is a bewildered by the senate race standings. Not that this is restricted to Louisiana and Wisconsin, but I've seen a lot of commentary about each in recent weeks.

First an editorial from the Washington Times: The scandal card fails in Louisiana. Though some of the comments are lame, the point is that all Vitter has done to seemingly erase the scars of scandal has been to constantly evoke OBAMA and PELOSI in all caps. No matter that calling Melancon a steadfast liberal is a complete joke; anti-obama fervor is strong enough in Louisiana to defy all reason or fact.

Which brings us to the WI senate race. Senator Feingold is trailing Ron Johnson (amateur climatologist and recently accused abusive priest enabler) simply for being in the senate. Much has been made recently of Feingold ads where he actually supports recent healthcare legislation instead of running from it. Democrat Feingold runs ad touting health care vote. . I'm personally glad someone finally has the huevos to actually do this, but most people are scared for him. He'll win in Madison and other left-leaning cities, but its going to be a hard race in the rural counties.

There's an election results analysis from the special for LT Gov and LA3 Republican runoff coming, but I can't post it yet. Too much Saints, drinking, and going to Las Vegas to get it done at the moment. I will be staying at the Hard Rock tomorrow night with nothing to do until Wednesday. Depending on whether or not I get my self some wifi from them tomorrow night AND don't spend it in random Vegas bars I may talk about turnout, tea partiers, and Sammy Kershaw. Otherwise don't expect anything else from here until Saturday. Unless AhQuoi gets on it.
