Gov. Jindal to GOP:"Time to Stop Being the Stupid Party" - Really?

Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana said today, "it is time for the Republican
Party to "stop being the stupid Party"...but how do you do that, when most of
your Party thinks stupid is the "New Normal?"

Just this week we have Rick Santorum being the Keynote Speaker at the anti-
abortion rally, "March For Life". In order to show that a fetus is just as smart
as he is, Rick answered questions with one kick for yes and two kicks for no!

In New Mexico, 10 Republicans co-sponsored a Bill that would force a woman,
impregnated by rape, to give birth to the baby in order to secure a conviction
against the rapist...this is because Republicans still believe that babies are from
cabbage patches delivered by a Stork!

And in Texas, the day after New York signed the toughest gun control law in
the nation, Attorney General Greg Abbot placed internet advertisements in NYC
that said,"Attention New Yorkers - We Want You and Your Guns!"...probably
because Rick Perry is still looking for help in seceding from the Union!

Governor Jindal went on to say that "we as a Party have to start talking like
adults and stop damaging the brand"...and then abruptly announced the cancellation
of a 12 City Debate Tour between Big Bird and Mitt Romney.

The problem for the Governor, is that he believes he has a Sales and Marketing
issue, when the Party actually has a message and a messenger problem.

Paul Ryan, (the messenger),...today, defined the Party as a "Value- Add", (the message),
in helping to negotiate a final outcome over the debt ceiling and spending cuts. The
floor mats in a Chevrolet are a value-add...not exactly a "Lincolnesque" branding
moment for a Party in crisis.

As Chris Mathews pointed out on "Hardball", the Democratic positions on most major
issues, such as abortion, gun control and immigration, are now favored by more than
50% of the people, while the Republican popularity on key positions has been dropping
faster than the weight of the leading contestant on "The Biggest Loser".

But where the Republicans have failed to win the battle for the "Hearts and Minds",
they have won in the art of filibustering in Congress and Gerrymandering in State
Congressional Districts. This will allow them to receive less votes then the Democrats,
but win more elections.

This winning formula has now emboldened them to try to change the electoral college
in states, where it could give them a competitive advantage in a Presidential Election.

So unfortunately for Governor Jindal, he will still see Republican Candidates such as
a Ted Cruz from Texas, who will not hesitate to shut down the government over
spending cuts, claim gun control is unconstitutional and consider a legislative standoff,
another chance at winning at the Alamo!

Next week the biggest corporations in America will be spending up to 4 million dollars
on Super Bowl ads to sell their best message in 60 seconds or less.

The best message that Governor Jindal can sell...is that the Republican Party needs
to sell a new product to the American People!

1. Jindal should start with himself, he is into firing the state workers and increasing the salaries of

his staff. I don't know why he is even attempting to set himself up to run for president since he was born to parents who was not citizens at the time of his birth so now the birthers can jump on this one. He is trying to cut the retirements of the state workers and of course the repubs is trying to cut social security, now this does not add up. The state workers in Louisiana sure do not earn enough money to sock away big retirements.

3. Too little, too late

 

Despite Jindal's futile efforts, the GOP will only become more insane and unbalanced in the next few years. I bet Sarah Palin, along with Paul Ryan, will run once again in 2016. Yes, they're that deluded.
