Political blogger Walt Bennetti of clickjefferson.com joined 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' today and discussed a number of topics including:

  • The George Zimmerman verdict
  • Senator Elbert Guillory's political aspirations
  • Governor Jindal's editorial blasting the Senate's immigration plan
  • Senator Mary Landrieu trying to delay student loan interest rate increases

In regards to the George Zimmerman murder trial Bennetti said,

What has been lost in this whole trial and the media circus surrounding the trial, is the fact that a child died.  Not just that but George Zimmerman will be impacted the rest of his life as well.  I'm happy the trial is over.  I'm happy the verdict came in.  I didn't care one way or the other.  I just wanted to see that our justice system would proceed.

Bennetti said he visited last week with State Senator Elbert Guillory who recently switched from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. According to Bennetti,

His world-tour continues.  He's actually in Washington DC today.  On Friday syndicated columnist Starr Parker floated the idea that Senator Guillory should run for another Senate job and take on Mary Landrieu.

Mixed signals seem to be coming from Governor Bobby Jindal.  Bennetti noted,

Last week in the National Review magazine Governor Jindal wrote an editorial and I thought it was interesting for a guy who says he doesn't want to be a United States Senator to go out and criticize the US Senate over their plans on immigration.

Senator Mary Landrieu is attempting to delay student loan interest payments and Bennetti wondered,

I don't know if they do it because of politics.  They do it because of the election cycle.  But it's getting tiring.  You're up there in Washington, do something.

Bennetti had a lot more to say on all of these topics and you can hear more of his comments by listening to the interview:
