blue dog dems

Actually, the blue dog reference is a counterpoint to Southern "yellow dog" Democrats who'd vote for a yellow dog if it had a "D' by its name. Billy Tauzin, Jr [LA-03 1980-2005] and other southern conservatives would meet in his offices, which had a locally famous (LA)artist, Rodrigue's, painting of his blue ghost dog on the wall.Tauzin co-founded the Blue Dog Coalition before switching to the Republican party in 1995. It's a clever little play on words.
