When  I first saw that the eccentric former state senator Elbert Guillory had a YouTube video titled "Coconuts," I thought maybe he's in the Zulu Aid and Pleasure Club.  Maybe he's getting a jump start on Carnival season and is hard at work decorating Fat Tuesday's most coveted throws.

Or maybe, I thought, Guillory intends for his video to show us how to make a slamming pina colada. Wait, maybe he a pastry chef.  I like macaroons.  I like coconut cake.  They're delicious.

Then I watched the video.  Guillory, who's from Opelousas and who's running for Congress out of Louisiana's Fourth District this fall, is standing at a microphone holding up two coconuts in his right hands.  Apparently, two coconuts are required to be a good Congressman.  And the Republican candidate wants us to know that he's got 'em.
