I must admit that this post title is a genuine oxymoron. For a guy who wants the GOP to stop being the stupid party, PBJ spends most of his time swimming in the shallow end of the intellectual pool.Time to quote Dave Weigel quoting Politico quoting PBJ on the Voting Rights Act:
“Unlike the Democratic Party, we’re not trying to divide the American
people,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Monday when asked by POLITICO
about the race-related and gay rights issues the court is tackling. “The
reality is as Republicans we want to unify the country. … We don’t
think demographics is destiny. We treat everybody as an individual.”
I have no idea what he means by this but neither does he since Republicans have *specialized* in wedge issues since the days of Tail Gunner Joe and Tricky Dick. PBJ’s reputation as a Brainiac continues to mystify me. Perhaps he benefits from positive stereotypes about Indian-Americans or something. He does, however, talk real fast so maybe that’s it.
That is all.
