Multi-tasking and Local Responsibility

The Huffington Post persists in calling attention to the antics of the United States Senator from Louisiana, David Vitter, ironizing on his ability to multi-task, that is, attend to personal affairs while representing his constituents. The scroll reads: “Multitasking: Vitter received calls from DC Madam during House votes”.

This is not and should not be of any interest outside of the State of Louisiana.

Louisiana has the representation is deserves. And what America thinks of Louisiana’s delegation to Congress is of little interest and immaterial. With time, the social system that makes Louisiana function as a cohesive polity will prove itself or be replaced. That’s the way it works.

What I would like to know however, is how Louisiana is reacting to the Senator’s new clothes and whether the State will retun Mr. Vitter to the United States Senate in 2010.
