Jindal: GOP must stop being 'stupid party'
By STEVE PEOPLES and KEN THOMAS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called on the Republican Party to "stop being the stupid party" on Thursday as GOP leaders promised fundamental changes to help stave off future losses.

In the keynote address at the Republican National Committee's winter meeting, Jindal said the GOP doesn't need to change its values but "might need to change just about everything else we are doing."

"We've got to stop being the stupid party. It's time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults," he said. "We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. I'm here to say we've had enough of that."

Jindal, thought to be a potential 2016 presidential contender, offered little detail in the 25-minute address. He called on conservatives to shift their focus from Capitol Hill number crunching to "the place where conservatism thrives - in the real world beyond the Washington Beltway."

1. Right versus Left

 

What did the right say to the left? "You're stupid!"
What did the left say to the right? "Nuh-uh, you're stupid!"

Okay, moving on now.

8. The GOP gathered ALL of the stupid in the country under one tent, what did they think

they were getting, Einsteins? Just the fact the party is sooo stupid in trying to sort out stupid is stupid in itself! As Ron White says, You can't fix stupid!"

9. Atta boy, Bobby..

Do NOT under any circumstances change your values.

Preemptive war is good.
Capitalism should be totally unregulated.
The US is a Christian nation.
People on welfare and unemployment are cheats, takers and leeches.
More guns is always better than less guns.
The Bible always trumps the Constitution.
Liberals are hell bent to destroy this God-given country of ours.

Keep shouting all this bullshit every chance you get, and get the other wingnuts to speak out loud and often. That's the way to deal with the stupid in your party.

13. Being the party of fear and hate should be enough.

Stupid just goes with the territory.

14. Physician, heal thyself

He wants to eliminate Louisiana's income tax and rely solely on the sales tax.

Estimates are that the sales tax would increase from 4 to 7% -- a quarter-point below California's.

Except in the parishes (counties) that levy additional local sales taxes.

Chief among these is Orleans Parish, the city of New Orleans, with a 5% local tax.

That would leave New Orleans with a 12% sales tax.

16. No, not the stupid party

It's the asshole, misogynistic, war-promoting (among other things), anti-science party. These are just the surface.

18. Hell, Bobby, if the GOP loses the "stupid vote" they are toast.

That is pretty much the only constituency the GOP has left.

19. Another thing, Booby: It's the GOP values that makes it the stupid party. You can't change one

without changing the other, Stupid.

20. Well he's right about that....

All these Rethuglicons think about is "damage to the brand." And the marketing attitude that "it's not what you say, it's how you say it."
