Poetic Justice

Buh-Bye, Bobby!

With an “It’s not my time,” Bobby Jindal’s outta there,
After his quixotic presidential climb went nowhere.
You’d have to be a psychotic pollyanna
To want for the nation what he did for Louisiana.
Asked who he’d endorse, Jindal said, “I don’t think people care.”

Poetic Justice

Incompetent, Inchoate, Incoherent

Bobby Jindal’s stint as governor has been less than steady.
While Louisiana’s budget plunges deeper into the red, he
Thinks he can win,
Based on the color of his skin,
With this idiotic campaign slogan: “Tanned, Rested, Ready.”

Gay Marriage Wreckage

Bobby Jindal wants the Supreme Court’s destruction,
While Ted Cruz wants justices to stand for election.
They say that gay marriage
Is a judicial miscarriage.
They don’t believe in constitutional equal protection.

Jindal Displays His Deep Understanding of the U.S. Constitution

The Supreme Court is completely out of control, making laws on their own, and has become a public opinion poll instead of a judicial body. If we want to save some money lets just get rid of the court.

— Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), quoted by the Baton Rouge Advocate, in response to the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage across the country.

The Price of Ducks

$415,000

Amount in tax breaks allowed for every episode of “Duck Dynasty” taped in Louisiana, even as Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) tries to close a $1.6 billion budget hole, the Baton Rouge Advocate reports. “The A&E television reality show takes part in the nation’s most generous entertainment-tax credit program. Jindal is proposing no changes, arguing that reducing such breaks is tantamount to raising taxes.”

Carville Mocks Notion of ‘Tax Virginity’

The Governor and Legislature constantly refer to how can they maintain their purity, or as it is sometimes referred to, their ‘tax virginity.’ You have to be kidding me. This reminds me of two over-sexed teenagers dry humping in a backseat of car parked behind a levee wondering how far they can go while maintaining their purity or virginity. We are literally at the mercy of buffoons and comedians.

— Democratic startegist James Carville, writing in the LSU student paper Daily Reveille.

Jindal Spent Almost Half of 2014 Away from Louisiana

165

Number of days Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), “who is flirting with a presidential run, spent in places other than Louisiana in 2014. “In 2013, he was gone about 74 days,” the Baton Rouge Advocate reports. “Only one of those trips seems to have been for official state business — an economic development foray to Asia.”

Jindal Against GOP Limiting Debates

I know there is a lot of concern, especially in this town among Republican party leaders. There’s this ideal of theirs, this idealistic belief, that if we could just have fewer debates, if we could have a gentler kinder nominating process that would be good for the party and good for the nominee. Well you know what? Democracy is messy.

— Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (D), dismissing “the Republican National Committee’s efforts to reduce the number of debates in the Republican presidential primary, and to shorten the primary process, calling the RNC’s changes futile,” Yahoo News reports.

Jindal Laments GOP’s Loss of Enthusiasm for Repealing Obamacare

If the whole point of this election was simply to give John Boehner and Mitch McConnell nicer offices, let’s give ‘em back.

— Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), quoted by the Wall Street Journal, complaining that GOP leaders have lost interest in repealing Obamacare.
