Democrats And Buses

Free Republic has an excellent post about buses in New Orleans and how the Democrats use them and how they don’t use them. Good read ....

Flashback to 1996: A Day When Buses Were Used in New Orleans
Baton Rouge Advocate | Nov. 10, 1996

NEW ORLEANS - Red beans, parades and a thousand people all were part of the push that got nearly 186,000 voters to New Orleans polls on Election Day and gave Democrat Mary Landrieu a U.S. Senate victory. Republican Louis “Woody” Jenkins has refused to concede defeat to Landrieu, who had an unofficial 5,899-vote lead after voting machines were opened Friday. The statewide tally released by the secretary of state on Friday was Landrieu 853,076, Jenkins 847,177, the closest Senate election in Louisiana history. Campaign manager Tony Perkins said volunteers will be working all weekend, checking out hundreds of complaints - especially in New Orleans, where Landrieu led Jenkins 143,050 to 42,653.

Bob Tucker, a businessman and close advisor to New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial, said it was Morial’s get-out-the-vote teams that won the day for Landrieu, President Clinton and Orleans Parish Leader Harry Connick. “All elections begin and end in the streets on election day. That’s where the Clinton, Landrieu and Connick team won Tuesday,” Tucker said. For instance, when the management team got word at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday that a GOP tracking poll showed Jenkins ahead, it was time for an instant parade. “Within 45 minutes, we arranged a motorcade,” Tucker said. “We found Mary and Marc, got school buses for workers and sound trucks with music and put on a parade to flush out our voters.” Landrieu and Morial waved from campaign manager Norma Jane Sabiston’s convertible.

“We moved them into the major housing project areas blowing horns and playing New Orleans music,” Tucker said. “We were doing what we do best in New Orleans, having a parade.” There were more parades in key areas during “surge time” - late afternoon and evening, when people get off work. Tucker’s teams tracked the turnout all day in target precincts. If the vote was slow compared to past elections, some of the 1,000 street workers were sent there to knock on doors and ask people to vote. A phone bank worked all day, asking voters to go to the polls.

The street workers were divided into two groups of 500 -one for the morning, and one for the afternoon. Those were split into four groups: One to work polling places; one to wave signs at intersections; one to go door-to-door; and one to go to shopping centers and employment centers. The one time all were together was at lunch, when all 1,000 got a lunch of red beans and rice.

Now you know. When Dummycraps in New Orleans need votes, the school buses run. When the city is flooding and the people who voted for them are drowning or starving, the buses stayed parked. End of lesson.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
