I do hope that Vince Bowers had his tongue planted firmly in his cheek when he wrote his recent letter. If so, I have to agree with him that “infidelity” and “asking for forgiveness,” if not valued in our Louisiana politicians, are at least expected.

It is unfortunate that what most shake their heads and smirk at is someone got caught. There but for the grace of God go … who? Maybe you?

As far as a freshman congressman achieving anything, dream on. It will take many terms of service to accrue any kind of clout and bring anything home to his constituents.

What I would like to know is how much money and good will did Vance McAllister squander on this one captured kiss.
