Bobby Jindal: EPIC FAIL

February 25th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Bobby Jindal’s “Republican response” to President Obama’s address to Congress Tuesday night–which was billed as the Louisiana governor’s coming-out party–was universally panned by the left and right. Conservative columnist David Brooks–who is part Canadian and not given to hyperbole–called Jindal’s platitude-filled speech a “disaster,” “nihilism,” and “insane.” FOX News commentator Juan Williams said that Jindal sounded “childish” and spoke in a “sing-songy” voice. And now the entire interwebz has a new meme: Bobby Jindal is Kenneth the Page from 30 Rock.

Dude. Jindal. You blew it. After last night, we totally don’t want to hump your accent any more. Supriya, we’d still do, but you, not so much.

BABEWATCH: Supriya Jindal

February 24th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Supriya Jolly Jindal

Age: 37

Occupation: Louisiana’s First Lady

Why She’s a Babe: Politics aside, Supriya Jindal is hawt. On Sunday, at the first formal dinner given at the White House for the nation’s governors, she showed up in the same red dress (pictured) as Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell’s wife, Marjorie, but still managed to stand out (let’s remember that she’s birthed three children). We also love her bouncy, shampoo-commercial hair, and the loving way she looks at her husband. Could this be the upside to the Jindals’ covenant marriage? If so, it’s the only one we can see, but it’s a pleasing one to the eye, at least.

Bobby Jindal: Just Another Politasian

November 25th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

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.
