Jindaltalia Had the Balls to Lie



No, I'm not I'm surprised that our favorite Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal, had the balls (said governor pictured above illustrating their size and scope) to lie to us on national TV. I'm also not all that surprised that his story about his and Sheriff Henry Lee's facing down inept government bureaucrats in order to save Hurrican Katrina victims is a total fabrication. It's just that that story was so easily proved false, you've really got to wonder what was going through his mind when he decided to tell it.

In an odd way, though, this made-up story did prove the two points Jindaltalia was trying to illustrate. One, it does illustrate his own personal courage--to tell such a bullshit story in front of the country with a straight face. And two, that (Republican) government indeed does not work--in constantly deceiving the American public. I think the man didn't realize just how illuminating his little tale was.

I thought it was interesting that he brought up Harry Lee, the former sheriff of Jefferson Parish - a New Orleans suburban area. Now deceased, Harry Lee was a controversial figure. He was a Chinese American democrat who was loved by white conservatives and liberals, especially in his parish. He was GOD. He encouraged his deputies to use racial profiling and was unapologetic about it. His deputies would patrol for black people walking through neighboring white neighborhoods. Just by invoking his name, Jindal made a large segment of his constituency happy.
