This is rich. Bobby Fucking Jindal is calling for the GOP to become more enlightened:

“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments — enough of that,” Jindal said. “It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

Yes. He really said that. Apparently self-awareness isn't Bobby's strong suit.

I mean, really? Bobby Jindal? Of Louisiana? The Creationist? As I said, this is rich coming from the same guy that is not only allowing, but pushed for state funds to pay to teach children from A Beka Books and Bob Jones University texts, and Accelerated Christian Education.

Here's just a sample of what those "texts" posit:

Solar Fusion is a Myth
A Japanese Whaling Boat Found a Dinosaur
Science Proves Homosexuality is a Learned Behavior
Humans and Dinosaurs Co-Existed
Evolution Has Been Disproved
Doesn't Lil' Bobby know that if the GOP purged stupidity from their ranks that he would be taking the first seat on the short bus?

Reading stories like this, it's no wonder to this sentient being that the GOP is forever stuck in an epistemological cul de sac of their own making.
