Never Underestimate How Sleazy The Democratic Party Really Is
Even their own members are disgusted by Party officials

Congressman Bobby Jindal (R-LA) is running for governor of Louisiana... and is leading in the polls by a wide margin. He's also a Catholic. So what does the Democratic Party of Louisiana do to win this election?

Here... see for yourself;

And amazingly enough, the actual commercial by the LA Democratic Party has magically disappeared from the internet. It's a shame you can't see it in it's entirety... but the above clip gives a pretty good idead what it's like.

And to better illustrate just how sleazy the Democratic Party of Louisiana really is, here are some comments by Louisiana Democrat politicians who are also Protestants;

Several Democratic elected officials said Thursday that their state party leaders went too far by airing a TV commercial that contends U.S. Rep. Bobby Jindal insulted thousands of Protestants.

The Rev. Raymond Brown of New Orleans, a Democrat running against Jindal for governor, is not pleased with the spot, either. “It’s such a sleazy, slick tactic,” he said. Brown, who was ordained as a Baptist preacher, accused the party of trying to discriminate on the basis of religion.

The commercial — which is only airing in north Louisiana — draws from articles the Republican gubernatorial candidate wrote about his conversion to Catholicism.

Franklin Mayor Raymond Harris, a Democrat, said he is confident that Jindal is tolerant of non-Catholics based on the testimony the Kenner congressman once shared with the congregation at the Assembly of God Church that Harris attends. Harris characterized his party’s commercial as a desperate attempt to discredit Jindal. “I want to know who doesn’t have faith that’s running. I’m much more afraid of them,” he said.

Other Democrats — all Protestants like the mayor — share Harris’ distaste of the commercial. Winnsboro Mayor Jack Hammons said the commercial convinced him to cast his vote for Jindal in the Oct. 20 race. Hammons said he watched the ad, read the religious articles in question and concluded that the party twisted Jindal’s words. “Dirty politics, that’s all it is,” he said.

What started all this was an article that Congressman Jindal wrote years ago for the New Oxford Review, entitled; How Catholicism Is Different - THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ISN'T JUST ANOTHER "DENOMINATION"

The article itself can be seen here.

This just proves that some people have no shame.

As a Louisiana resident, I hope the Dem's campaign against Jindal backfires on them. I'll never forget the final debate broadcasted on TV between Jindal and Blanco in his first run. It absolutely infuriated me because it was a complete set-up. The two candidates were asked about the most defining moment in their lives. Jindal answered that it was his conversion, when he became a Catholic. Blanco answered that it was the death of her son. She got the sympathy vote. Any idiot who posed that question would have known Blanco's answer.

Of course the Democratic party is sleazy. What else would you expect from a party who supports abortion and gay marraige?

The Dems themselves have absolutely NO PROBLEM insulting Protestants (and Catholics) on a daily basis - whether through their blatant immorality, or through insinuations that Protestants and Catholics will vote for them if they pretend to be pro-life, against same sex marriage, etc. They think we are drooling sheep who cannot make decision beyond what our pastors or the Vatican tell us.

They are opportunistic hacks.

I hope Jindal kicks rear in LA.

It shows what happens when they hired Jimmy Swaggart to do their ads.
