Crash And Burn

We’ve all had a good time watching the disastrous rollouts of the Cruz and Paul candidacies lately. But there are plenty who have not officially thrown down yet who need some attention. And boy, are they trying to get it.

2013:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal warned fellow Republicans they “must stop being the stupid party” during a fiery and sharp critique Thursday night at the Republican National Committee’s Winter Meeting.

For Jindal, a popular rising star in the party who is thought to be an early contender for the 2016 presidential nomination, that recalibration involves Republicans learning to “stop insulting the intelligence of voters.”

I like that. Some self-awareness from the right for a change. Wait, nope:

2015:

“Let’s not mince words about it, it was bullying,” Jindal said Friday during a speech at a National Rifle Association’s 2015 Convention.

“This was an attack on our Constitution,” Jindal said. “It was an attack on the fundamental right to speech and association and the free exercise of religion. It was large corporations, it was Hollywood, it was the media elite saying we don’t care about the first amendment.”

Eeeek! The liberals! The media! The atheists! The homos! Get your guns!

For Republicans, the only way to be smart is to be fucking stupid.

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
