    Well, it would give people another excuse to manufacture a bogus question of whether a nonwhite presidential candidate was actually born in the U.S.A.

    Oh, sorry, never mind, only Republicans do that to Democratic candidates......

    Let's not kid ourselves. If the situations were reversed, the Dems would be all over that shit.

    At this point in the 21st century, we don't need another person who advocates teaching Creationism in public school.

    I say this disqualifies him. Not because he believes in Intelligent Design Creationism, but because he thinks it is science. I don't know how an intelligent educated person like him can possibly have missed The Enlightenment. I mean it has been over 300 years now. You would think he would have gotten the message.

    Jindal and Palin are just the last gasps of the neocon GOP in its current iteration. They need a new formula, new leadership, and source of appeal. The entire GOP platform needs to be overhauled and the new stars of the current show aren't aware that their series is about to be canceled.

    No, someone else, some other guru, some other formula will be in the works to make them at least semi-credible in 2016. Unless Obama completely fucks-up, these Children of the Corn the GOP are raising won't stand a chance. Their unstinting support of Bush and everything he has been blatantly wrong about will come back to slap them in the ass and very hard as the Dems won't cease to remind voters of the dark days of Bush and everyone who even remotely associated with him.

    I think Matt Taibbi got it right in one of his recent Rolling Stone pieces... that the reason Bobby Jindal and Sarah Palin are being chosen and paraded around by their party is because they the only notable Republicans on the national scene who are not white, male, and over 40. Looking at the crowds at national Republican conventions, and McCain's or Palin's speeches late in the campaign, I think he has a point.

    The funny thing is he's not exactly from a dumb redneck family either, both his parents came to this country for grad school, and Jindal himself graduated with honors in biology (and public policy) from Brown.

    I wonder, at what point did his need to join the Borg...err, GOP hivemind outweigh the presence of mind he certainly needed nearly 2 decades ago to understand the scientific basis behind evolution.
    Well at least he isn't one of those IRL griefers who makes it all the way to a PhD in the life sciences only to "come out" as a creationist, I mean it's not like being a Keynesian vs. an Austrian.

    Jindal became governor of this state with a pledge to clean up political corruption.

    Then several months ago state representatives voted themselves a payraise that doubled their salaries, across the board (the original proposal was to triple it, but they backed off of that idea after public outcry).

    All along Jindal vowed he wouldn't veto the poorly timed bill, passed in a state still struggling with recovery from two hurricanes. Well the people of the state "pitched an absolute bitch" and when the raise got to his desk he reneged and vetoed it.

    During the recent local campaign for senator he appeared in ads for local John Kennedy, extolling him as a man with "fine American conservative values". Kennedy was running against Mary Landrieu, a woman who has tirelessly worked her ASS off on behalf of the state throughout her entire career.

    Though the state went for McCain, the voters at least were wise enough not to fall for the party line, and re-elected Mary Landrieu.

    Make no mistake about it. This guy is a dyed in the wool far right Republican with a gift for gab and as polished (on the exterior at least) as Obama.

    So contrary to responses above, the GOP damn sure want one such as he.

    Read my original posting. If there was a LEGITIMATE question of whether the Republican nominee were born in the USA, of course Democrats would be all over it. But only Republicans completely fabricate a completely baseless question of whether a Democratic nominee was born in the USA.
