Racist. And Sexist.

That's what Mary Landrieu, our US Senator, thinks of Louisiana, although we've elected her to the Senate three times.  According to Hot Air, (with lots of additional links)
“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News in an interview. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”
Noting that the South is “more of a conservative place,” she added that women have also faced challenges in “presenting ourselves.”
Thanks, Mary.  I really appreciate the vote of confidence.  Of course, we're used to those kinds of disparaging comments from outsiders, but we never expected to hear those kinds of comments from someone who lives in the state and knows the people.

Oh, wait...  You don't live in the state.  I forgot.  We'll try to repay the compliment on Tuesday.

Louisianians are incredibly sexist/racist/bigoted. It's why Louisiana elected Cathleen Blanco as governor, why Landrieu was elected 3 times as US Senator, and why Louisiana elected the first Indian-American as the entire USA.

Yep, that's Louisiana, racist/sexist/bigoted to the core......
