Jindal tells Republicans to defy Obama's policies

Bobby Jindal, largely considered as the 'head' of the Republican Party, is about as big a caricature of Republicans as they get. He's scientifically ignorant and illiterate, blindly parrots ideals and values from his cohorts no matter how stupid or baseless they are, is a fervent creationist (oh, right – a believer of Intelligent Design, which is of course nothing like Creationism ...), doesn't think volcanoes are a credible threat (seen his previous response to Obama's first press conference?), is a Pro-Lifer, votes for banning crucial medical and scientific research that could save unfathomable numbers of lives, and is against Gay Marriage. That's probably not all of it, but this list is harsh enough as it is – more would just seem petty of me.

Christ on a stick, you could draw him in lineart and title him 'Jindal without Bindle' and he wouldn't be a bigger farce.

And now, Jindal is saying that Republicans need to stand up to Obama and defy his policies. How truly patriotic.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal again found himself carrying the Republican mantle opposite a prime-time appearance from President Obama on Tuesday, saying Republicans must be ready to defy the president when they disagree with his policies.

He also joked about his widely panned response to Obama's address to Congress last month.

"We are now in the position of being the loyal opposition," Jindal said at a Republican congressional fundraising dinner that only by coincidence fell on the same night as Obama's news conference. "The right question to ask is not if we want the president to fail or succeed, but whether we want America to succeed."

Don't bother reading the rest, go goes on about how it's all the Democrats' fault of course, somehow allowing his hilariously small mind to forget the notion that the decisions that lead to this whole fucking debacle were almost exclusively Republican to begin with. But no, can't have Republicans shoulder responsibility, can you now?

Anywhere else in any sane country this idiot would've been kicked out of office a long time ago. (Hell, that's an oxymoron; he never would've made it in office to begin with.) But in Idiot America, where religion overthrows Science and reason/sanity are crimes against nature, he's rapidly becoming a 'star' in the GOP.

How that worries me – he's even being rumored as a possible electoral candidate for the 2012 Presidential Elections. Let's hope Obama keeps on truckin' as he has been for the past three months; Jindal won't be fit to rub his feet. (Hell, he ain't even fit to lick them at the current moment.)

    What disturbs me more than anything else is that, for years, even decades, Democrats have been the party of no opposition to anything.

    I wish I could admire Republicans for at least being willing to act like a party of opposition, but they're opposing all the wrong things. In fact all they're really doing, all they've been good at, in fact, is being contrary. If Obama came out with a cure for cancer I guarantee Republicans would be screaming about the value and necessity of cancer.

    And the sad thing is there's a loyal core group of Americans, mostly in the Southeastern states, who'd go along with that.
