Catch a Falling Star

Ever since McCain got whomped on by The Big Brother, we've been hearing Republicans tout Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal, as a "rising star in the GOP." Read: "See we got us one, too!"

But Jindal's incessant, wooden movements and his mouthing the same, old, tired Republican line we've been hearing for decades now (BTW, how do tax cuts for the middle class create jobs? Who the fuck am I hiring?), I was half-expecting the camera to pan up so we could see Mitch McConnell marionetting the new GOP luminary.

Sorry, guys, you tried the "feminist" route with Palin, and that crashed and burned. Brother Bobby hit the ground so hard tonight, he could've caused the dinosaurs to go extinct. Of course, your party is looking a little Jurassic these days. Hopefully, one day, my grandchildren will be reading about you in their science books and Kansas Creationists will refuse to teach about you.

I know! I'm sure anyone speaking after Obama is going to pale in comparison, but come on! He was so sing-songy and awful. Jindal 2012? Come on.

Yeah, it reminds me of that old Roots song:

"Change the order, there's no way we can rock after them."

But, wow, the man was just atrocious. I've seen even conservatives are in line bashing old boy, like that old scene in Airplane.

Rachel Maddow gave the best response to Jindal's speech, "It left me slack jawed and babbling like a Benedrilled infant."

I posted nine minutes of Rachel Maddow's response to Jindal, and I will now link yours, because your's made me laugh out loud. Thanks :)
