I'm suprised too, don't they know they are wasting their money?

What happen to fiscal responsibility?

Hey, when you can receive tens of thousands of dollars for speaking engagements where you spout typical patriotic blabber and talk about real America, why not keep BSing voters out of their money?

Her big gaffes about NH and Massachusetts and America's founding?
But facts and teabag loyalists aren't the best of friends.

That's just it-the facts don't seem to matter. Of course you can make up all kinds of crap about the President not being an American citizen, but you can mess up anything yourself about American history. And it's not just anything-that was a very important event and distinction. I take it very personally Anyone who thinks or says that the shot heard round the world was in New Hampshire should be deported immediately

If she saw a Concord sign in NH and just ran with that, well I don't even know what to say about that. Maybe she just got confused

She probably can't understand why a big, gay, french city like Paris is in Texas either.

Oh God. No no no no no.

I have no idea why he's called that, but it's hilarious.


Excuse my ignorance for a moment, I'll admit to not following this part of the election process very closely/well (the whose going to run, so and so might/might not part), but what happened to the guy I kept hearing was being groomed to take on Obama in 2012, right after Obama was elected. I feel like he was from New Orleans or just Louisiana. I was interested in finding out more about him, but forgot because I never really heard anything about him again after the first few stories.

That's the guy.

And clearly since he's the governor, I could've just looked that up myself.

Ha. I couldn't remember if he was the governor or some other role in Louisiana.

But yeah, he's gone quiet.

Jindal made a laughing stock of himself after Obama gave a speech on the environment. Jindal was chosen by the GOP to give the rebuttal speech and it was to be aired nationally right after Obama's speech. This was suppose to be his introduction to the nation and really get people stirred up and excited about a "well spoken minority" in the GOP, with hopes of grooming him for 2012. Well Jindal spoke to the country like it was a kindergarten class and he was the teacher, and the GOP turned on him very quickly. The next day he was trashed by all sides. Since then he's really made some big missteps in Louisiana and Republicans I think have given up hope for him in the national spotlight.

I will make an uncharacteristic statement about Jindal. I was just in NOLA a couple of weeks ago, and I got the impression that Jindal was doing a fairly good job for the state currently. I have to believe that if that's true, it is because he gave up national Republican aspirations (by force/choice/whichever) and has focused on improving Louisiana after the oil spill and after the hurricanes. This is a novel thing for a Republican governor, and if he is doing as good a job as it seems, then kudos to him.

FWIW

He has a high rating for Governor and he's actually done some good for the state. But I think most would agree, unless he makes some big changes, that's where he should stay.

As a libertarian, I'm hoping Herman Cain shakes
the dust and the has-beens out of the Republican Party.
