Yeah, HOW Jindal said it, his halting sing-songy Kenneth-the-NBC-page delivery was FAIL-tacular, but Maddow’s befuddlement on WHAT he was saying was spot-on. His appropriation and flip flop of the post-Katrina fed debacle is jaw-dropping.
And don’t even get me started on the Train to Disneyland and volcano-monitoring. Sheesh. Jindal took a few billion of the stimulus for road and bridge infrastructure, in a state that’s more than half underwater, but the very idea of a train, for people, for tourists, taking future needs into account, well that’s just elitist wasteful crazy talk. (Aside of course, from the fact that Republican talking points on the MagLev lineare big fat lies.)
And monitoring the development of natural disasters-what good could that possibly do!? (apply head directly to desk now)
This stuff cannot win. The Rs are lamely attempting to rally their usual low-hanging fruit…okay, “low-information” voters, hoping they can scrape up enough folks to go to the polls in the next election cycle so they don’t look like what they already are: irrelevant embarrassing failures.
