Bobby Jindal epitomizes Republicanism

Jindal in his Republican response to Obama’s address:

Today in Washington, some are promising that government will rescue us from the economic storms raging all around us.

Those of us who lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have our doubts.

Let’s think for a moment. Who was it who abandoned New Orleans again?

Uh, that would be the Republican president who ignored Katrina, the Republican presidential candidate who ate an oversized birthday cake in California while citizens of New Orleans drowned, and the Republican Congress who refused to investigate what went wrong. Your point would be what exactly, Mr. Jindal? That voters shouldn’t trust Republicans to protect them in time of need? Republicans expect the American people to vote against their own self-interest. And while that may work in the south, and among the numb masses of the religious right, the rest of America (dare someone call it “real America”?) has had quite enough, thank you.
