My letter is in response to the letter by Doug Joubert, a New Orleans teacher. He wrote, “Vote anybody but Kennedy, defend Louisiana’s dignity.” And, “We truly need someone who not only represents us as a state but who doesn’t embarrass us.”
As an independent who has voted without regard to the political party but based upon the person, I am proud to have voted for Sen. John Kennedy. His Foghorn Leghorn comments are not only humorous, but if you analyze them, they are mostly insightful — such as “If people lose faith in their government, the result is the same whether or not the loss of confidence is justified.”
As Joubert is a teacher, his short-sighted letter failed to teach me anything. But it did confirm that too many educated people seem to care less about a person’s accomplishments than their own best interests.
I’ll take country quips and mean tweets over high interest rates, high inflation, and high gas and food prices any day.
