Or is it that you are bought lock, stock and barrel by your corporate overlords? Pray tell me if you're so damned right, what have you to show for your tenure as governor of Louisiana? The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported, much to its chagrin,

Louisiana ranks dead last on a new composite index comparing how the fifty states fare on measures of economic vitality, education, health, crime and governance.
So, Bobby, I suggest that since your state is dead last of all fifty, you are in no position to lecture anyone. It looks much more to me that you're a total incompetent. Let me say it clearly, don't lecture me on anything when your state is dead f**king last in everything.

Yet you have the cajones to come out and tell us, that

"I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Saturday night, ”where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C."
Seriously, a state governor using the phrase "hostile takeover?" A hostile takeover of a nation's capitol is called a coup. The incompetent governor is calling for a coup, is he not? Isn't that like insurrection, rebellion, treason...?
"Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes?"
I will refer to what I wrote above when the question of competence comes up. Presiding over a state that is dead last is pretty much the definition of incompetence.

As far as the trope, "most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America," Jindal shows he knows nothing about recent American history, or else he's knowingly flat-out lying. In my lifetime, Barak Obama is to the right, that is, the conservative side, of Republican President, Dwight Eisenhower. Of course, I defer to the fact Eisenhower was before Kid Jindal was born. so Jindal probably doesn't know anything about him.

Recently, Jindal signed into law a measure by Louisiana Republicans that will keep Louisiana citizens from suing oil and gas companies. That tells me all I need to know about who Bobby Jindal represents.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
