SJ on Billy Bob Jindal
This was a tragic performance, as off key as Golda Meir addressing the KKK.
1. The perp walk. What wedding planner staged Jindal's walk on? Was he following marks on the floor?
2. The Racism Brag. Mr. Jindal does not seem to have gotten the message. Barack ceased being the first black President a while ago. He is the president who looks like US. Jindal seemed to be trying to place himself on an Obama stage that has been replaced with one where images of Lincoln are as or more important than those of ML King. A SAD mistake for a Southerner.
3. Is the Earth still flat? Reprican scientific denialism ain't a good thing anymore. Railing against watching volcanoes while sitting in Katrina's rubble?
4. Self Help for the wealthy? How many Americans feel they should pay for the collapse of Wall Street?
Finally, BOTH Jindal and the President talked from the platform of American Uniqueness. Whose platform was more impressive?
Those who know me also know that I believe we need two parties. The Repricans have, unfortunately, trapped themselves in a radical right wing religious bordello that is not appealing to most Americans and disgusts most people in the world. They can not win from that stage but worse, they can not contribute to OUR future while caught up in the filthy sheets of the bordello's whores.
There is a future for a second party BUT it needs to be a rational party. Schwarznegger, Whitman and Blumberg are the real future, not Jindal.
