Louisiana politics: Rod Dreher reports on Bobby Jindal's loss in Saturday's gubernatorial run-off election. The wonkish Republican lost to Democrat Kathleen Blanco (sort of a liberal Elizabeth Dole). Dreher chalks it up to politics and "negative advertising" by Blanco, and Jindal's inability to respond effectively in the campaign's closing days. It's too bad, as Jindal seems like a rising consevative star in a state that could use one.
