Have you heard about Lisa Mei Norton, right-wing Christian conservative country singer/songwriter?
She wants to keep her guns, finds Michelle Malkin and her ilk to be “smart,” thinks we’ve gone socialist, believes Obama wasn’t born here and loves to (tea) party. Oh, and she’s already working on the indoctrinasian of her six-year-old son. Translasian: She watches Fox News.

The 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference, affectionally known as CPAC, is under way as we speak in our nation’s capital.
“Our notion of freedom doesn’t consist of snorting cocaine, which distinguishes us from Barack Obama.”
Oh ho ho ho ho! ZING!
(Cock-sure commenters, we know that everybody’s parsing words. But this shit is seriously SO SILLY.)

It’s official: Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has been anointed–37 months ahead of the Iowa Caucuses–the “Republican Obama.” In a Washington Post article that cites Jindal as the next Great Brown Hope, tax-hating, Bush-loving conservative Grover Norquist explains why the Right is stoked to have the 37 year-old, first-generation Indian-American on their team:
“As Republicans, you have a real problem now with younger voters and immigrants. If you were going to central casting for a candidate to deal with all that, who do you have? Jindal. He is young, and he looks young…He’s a great communicator. And his record is that he’s sharp and quick with policy.”
And it’s true! Jindal is young, brown, the child of immigrants, and has a delicious way of speaking. And since we, too, are young, brown, and the children of immigrants, I guess that means we’re voting for Jindal in 2012! Woohoooooooooooo!
But wait. Not so fast. The Washington Post also reported on Jindal’s stance on social issues, which is decidedly not young:
- steadfast opposition to abortion without exceptions
- disapproval of embryonic stem cell research
- his and his wife Supriya’s decision in 1997 to enter into a Louisiana covenant marriage that prohibits no-fault divorce in the state
- his decision in June to sign into law the Louisiana Science Education Act, a bill heartily supported by creationists that permits public school teachers to educate students about both the theory of “scientific design” and criticisms of Darwinian evolutionary concepts
And if Jindal wants to be the Republican Obama, he’s going to need to capture the youth vote, and these days, young people simply aren’t kickin’ it old skool with social conservatism. Which means Bobby Jindal has about 37 months to get a brand new steez.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was in Iowa over the weekend, special guest at the “Celebrating the Family” fundraiser held by the Iowa Family Policy Center. In a speech to 800 attendees, Jindal called for a reconciliasian between conservative voters and their new president:
“Whether you voted for him or not,” Jindal said of the new president, “whether you supported the new leaders of Congress or not, they’re our president. They’re our Congress. They need our prayers. They need our support.”
Smooth move, Bobby Jindal.
Not so smooth was his choice to speak at a banquet held by the anti-gay, anti-choice Iowa Family Policy Center. Same-sex marriage rights will be decided in the Iowa Supreme Court next month, and the Iowa Family Policy Center is leading the hateration against it, calling proponents of gay marriage “anti-family.”
You know what’s really “anti-family”? Half of the poor, elderly, and disabled from New Orleans who are permanently displaced from their homes since Katrina. And the lack of affordable housing or even a plan for affordable housing for these families. Not to mention the thousands of people still living in FEMA trailers.
Get your own house and your own damn family (i.e. Louisiana) in order before you start stumping in Iowa, Bobby Jindal! Sheesh. We thought you were smarter than that.
