Stormy Explores


My dream is coming true:

Today, I am excited to announce that I am taking the next step in exploring a possible run for United States Senate. Two weeks ago, I embarked on a listening tour where I had the pleasure of hearing the thoughts and concerns of my fellow Louisianans. These conversations were highly encouraging and convinced me to officially explore the possibility of running for the United States Senate. To this end, I have formed an exploratory committee to gauge Louisianans’ support for my potential candidacy.


I do not take this step lightly. While I have been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response my potential candidacy has generated thus far, my decision to run for United States Senate will only be made after I have had the opportunity to discuss this prospect with as many people across the state as possible. Too many in government ignore the voices of those whom they claim to represent. I promise you that I will not.

Forming this committee will allow me to raise the funds necessary to explore a possible run and will provide Louisianans an opportunity to continue sharing with me their concerns and ideas. I invite you to visit and join me in taking this next important step. 

David Vitter’s ‘nads must be up near his kidneys.  I can just hear him scream “I’m a Rhodes Scholar … this wasn’t supposed to happen!” Yeah shitbag, so is Bill Clinton.

In the coming months I will continue my listening tour and am eager to visit western and northern Louisiana. I look forward to discussing further the vital priorities facing our state and nation—including reforming the tax code to a system that rewards, rather than penalizes, success, protecting our children and promoting personal responsibility as an alternative to government intrusion.

Her Facebook page for the committee is here. I was the first follower to sign on. I’m going to send her twenty bucks. We need to have a Stinque fundraiser.

Oh what the hell – it never gets old:


Okay, I am a fan too. One of those dudes seriously looks like a child molester though…

@homofascist: Just sent her twenty bucks. She’s smart – site lets you do a one-time or opt to automatically donate monthly. Just like a porn site!

Did that “Schwing States” post category survive the migration? Why, yes. Yes it did. Consider it a suggestion.

Does Stormy’s campaign provide, er, campaign materials? For research.

@nojo: Louisiana will sadly never be a swing state. But it might have the first senator with plus 4 implants.

@blogenfreude: It should be $29.95 for a one time purchase, or $19.95 monthly.

I’ll bite. Why not!?! It’s not like I want anything in return.

Biting is extra, Tommmcatt.

Shit — this is setting up perfectly. I think that Louisiana is one of only four states where this could potentially work — the others being California, Nevada and, of course, Maine.

@homofascist: I sense that you and I have some knowledge in this area.

Sorry to piss on your Stormy celebration with a threadjack, but I am so fucking pissed at the proposed California budget revision. Slashes health insurance for poor children, and now, they want to eliminate Cal-WORKS (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families for you non- Californians) and slash unemployment benefits. WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Our unemployment rate is over 9%, in some parts of the state it’s close to 20%.


I’m sorry to hear this. You guys on the coast should kick out dummies in the OC and the interior.

Does this mean that there is going to be a reverse of the Grapes of Wrath?

Or does the Terminator want to play Louis the XVI?

@SanFranLefty: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Democracy just doesn’t work. Srsly. When the founders meant tyranny of the majority, they were envisioning California’s stupid proposition process. And possibly the Governator, too.

@ManchuCandidate: If I looked at the LA Times map correctly, EVERY COUNTY, including the City and County of San Francisco, rejected 1A, 1C, 1D and 1E; only a smidgeon supported 1B.

I was referring to the hot bed of stupidity who helped push infamous Prop 13 and keeps electing hardcore dummies who think that taxes are the greatest evil, even greater than gay marriage.

From what little I understand, all the Props were pretty lousy choices.

@SanFranLefty: The BBC interviewed Gray Davis last night, and he did an admirable job displaying no schadenfreude whatsover. I’m sure a voice in his head was going: “Say it! Say ‘I told you so!'”

@ManchuCandidate: @rptrcub: Every time I’m asked to sign a petition to put something on the ballot as a proposition I say “I don’t believe in direct democracy.” The voters are dumb as shit and it is stupid to blame the Legislature for this mess. (Well, I blame the far-right Republicans who have held up the budget). Voters were the ones who went for Prop. 13, which made our state heavily dependent upon income tax and instituted the 2/3 majority to pass a budget. For fuck’s sake, a simple majority can vote to take away civil rights but it takes a 2/3 majority to pass a stupid budget?!

Bill Maher nails it.

@SanFranLefty: Oh, and I’m used to someone pissing on my Stormy posts. But I’ll be back.

@ManchuCandidate: prop 13: the root of all evil. at least in this situation.

@blogenfreude: How come you haven’t put any Stormy photos on your Facebook group?

@rptrcub: @ManchuCandidate: I fear that as the marginal safety net that exists in this state is cut away, we’ll be reading more stories like this as people continue to lose their shit and self-medicate with drugs. WARNING: Terrible story that makes one wish for some Old Testament style punishment and/or licensing scheme before people can breed.

@SanFranLefty: I linked up today’s post, and there’s a photo of her. So there.

@blogenfreude: It was just when I went to your group, I noticed a dearth of photos. Should I join the group? I think I’d be the only female.

@ManchuCandidate: I warned you. Welcome to my life. I get to read shit like that I dub the “Bad Parenting of the Day” stories on a daily basis for my day job.

@SanFranLefty: What, the Stormy group? It’s their group, not mine, but absolutely you should join. And go see what I just posted for you at the bottom of the Sanford post.

I knew a guy who became a lawyer in Memphis. Quit after he fought an HMO to pay for a girl’s cancer treatment for two years. The HMO fought long enough so the girl died before they had to pay.

Shit like that would either harden me against human suffering, break me emotionally or I’d end up joining the Army as an infantryman in Afghanistan (my eyes be damned) because I’d deal with better people in more humane situations.

@ManchuCandidate: I’ve developed a cynical gallows humor and a love for vodka. ADD: At least your friend wasn’t the attorney for the HMO. I can’t imagine being on the other side.
@blogenfreude: I misread your post to mean that you started the FB group.

@SanFranLefty: Not to mention more emphasis on the rights of children vs. parental rights. As someone who grew up without either biological parent, I believe it’s better to terminate the rights and let the kids be adopted rather than given the fuck-ups chance after chance after chance to neglect and abuse their kids. An abused animal has a better chance of being removed from a dreadful situation and adopted into a loving home than an abused child does. It’s disgusting.

@Mistress Cynica: Yes, there’s that argument you offer which I totally agree with, but apparently that’s a very politically incorrect sentiment to express in my line of work (although I express it regularly due to some first-hand knowledge of this). Also, apparently it’s very politically incorrect to suggest that people RUN, really don’t walk, to the nearest Planned Parenthood clinic to get birth control for their sake, the sake of their existing children, and the soon-to-be-birthed children.

Then again, I think contraceptives should be pumped into the water supply for everyone. Six billion miracles are enough. And really, breeders, your baby is not special, even if you register for $9 organic cotton socks and wraps for your precious gift from God. Because there were a thousand of them born the same day in slums in India and China and Kenya.

@blogenfreude: She’s a little kooky-pants at times, but I think we can all agree that Physicians for Social Responsibility is a good idea?

@SanFranLefty: Like I say, biology is too easy to use for reproduction. It’s so weird – you walk out of the hospital with a new life in your arms and they don’t even give you an owner’s manual.

Twelve years later, you get up before dawn after a few drinks the night before, cook rice for making his lunch, type labels for is his scottish castle project, walk down the hall and see someone with your exact hands in the pocket look emerging from his room, do the morning talk, get off early from work for a movie and later watch skateboarding videos with the former little bundle of joy. We joke about disfunction, like when I bought him some Slipknot cds, I told him, “remember don’t kill your parents after listening to this stuff. It’ll give metal a bad name.” The reward comes when he says “hey dad, let’s go fishing.”

@redmanlaw: Honey, you are so idyllic and believe me it’s not about you. Believe me if I could clone you and Mrs. RML and force you two to crank out more RML Jrs. I would do it.

And yeah, it’s a little horrifying that they let people walk out of the hospital with a few xeroxed pages of numbers to call and nothing else. However, I live a schizophrenic existence that swings from over-educated yuppies who get their verklempt panties in wads over breast feeding politics and over-study and buy $80 linen ass wipes ——- swinging over to the clients who can’t even realize that it’s not cool to save money by watering down the formula and it’s not until they ask their attorney why she doesn’t have kids that they realize they’re subsidized by about $3500/month by the State of California…something their attorney doesn’t get.
