Send in the Clowns

Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, gave the republican response to President Obama's address to Congress on Tuesday night.


Like Bozo.

You know, the repubs had it handed to them on a silver platter, complete with all of the garnishes and trimmings, back in November. Rightly so. Republican leadership hasn't been exactly, uh, what's the word?

Oh, right.


So in an attempt to re-establish their relevance in the political landscape, they give you Bobby J. Kind of like Johhny Mac, only less, uh, what's the word?

Seasoned? Mature? Experienced?


Ok, that's not the point (although it could be, I suppose).

What is the point is that this guy went on camera and talked to America like he was Ward Cleaver. Or Mr. Rogers. Maybe both. Either way, it was ridiculous and patronizing, as is usual for right wing banter. So stiff and rigid and void of any personality (he's a ragin' cajun, y'know). Did he really find it funny that his father had to make payments on said Master Jindal's actual delivery?

Do other republicans think it's funny? I'm asking.

Is he your guy, this clown?

So it goes...
