Last year after the GOP got their head handed to them in the general election and there was a lot of alleged soul-searching, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal implored the Republicans to “stop being the stupid party.”
So that explains this how?
Jindal spoke at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a group led by longtime Christian activist Ralph Reed. Organizers said more than 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering. Republican officials across the political spectrum concede that evangelical voters continue to play a critical role in GOP politics.
“I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States,” Jindal said, “where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.”
A “hostile takeover”? Like an armed revolution on the scale of Sunnis invading a small Iraqi town?
The governor does not explain how such a plan — shooting up the White House and the Capitol — would create jobs, save on health insurance, or stop two men who love each other from getting married.
I realize the governor was speaking metaphorically in front of a group that lives life as a metaphor full of apocalyptic images of the End Times and being raptured with Kirk Cameron, but this kind of talk really does bring out the stupid for all to see.
