"If you want to deal with issues, I'll be happy to do that. But to sit around and have some little Chihuahua yapping at my heels is not my idea of radio." — State Sen. Elbert Guillory hanging up on Baton Rouge talk radio host Jim Engster last week. Guillory, an African-American Republican, called State Rep. Ted James a "Chihuahua" after James questioned Guillory's position that Democrats haven't delivered in Louisiana for black voters.
"From a straight entertainment value, I would have liked to see an Edwin Edwards and Lenar Whitney runoff." — Pearson Cross, a political science professor at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, on the 6th District congressional race. Cross made the remark in a speech to the Baton Rouge Press Club, as quoted by The New Orleans Advocate.
