Republican Beauty Contest In New Orleans

There's an interesting gathering of the GOP going on in the Big Easy this weekend, called the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Most every report I've read speaks to the energy in the room. Nice to hear Sarah Palin fire back at President Obama for his lack of nuclear strategy credentials (though he HAS been president for nearing a year and a half, so that's got to count for something, no?).

Pretty much all the Republican contenders for 2012 are making the trek to New Orleans--including Governor Rick Perry of Texas who gave what the story writer called a "thundering" address. Perry's doing a good job in Texas (though Texas is a "weak governor" state), though I wonder whether the country would be willing to go back to that well again so soon after GWB. I'm going to learn a little more about Governor Perry to see whether there is any there, there.

Jindal warned them to stay away from Bourbon Street. Funny.

Yeah buddy, stay away from Bourbon Street. It's the Democrats who like to play chick or dick.
