Governor Bobby Jindal and Senator David Vitter- Still Not GOP Frat Buddies

It is amazing to see the dominance of the Louisiana Republican State Party this year. It was not too long ago with much reason it was known as the party of the circular firing squad. The fact that Former Republican Mike Foster for all purposes neutered it during his 8 years reign as Governor make it's more incredible.

But what is truly breathtaking is that this has happened while thre off it's top leaders have varying level of dislike toward each other. That is Governor Bobby Jindal, Lt Gov Jay Dardenne, and U.S. Senator David Vitter.

It has been striking as Bobby Jindal's star is on the rise again in the national party that the national media does not pick up on this Jindal /Vitter  dynamic.

One of the State's leading political reporters has a good piece detailing how that is playing out this session at :
