Bobby Jindal’s controversial new proposal for conservatives: Be more popular


A copy of a forthcoming speech from the Louisiana governor reveals just how bankrupt of new ideas the GOP really is

BY ALEX PAREENE


Washington Post ace reporter Chris Cillizza has a scoop: Bobby Jindal is going to deliver a speech! Jindal, the governor of Louisiana and former exorcist, is going to give a speech to the RNC that will, in the words of the person who wrote Cillizza’s headline, “speak truth to GOP power.” Cillizza and his co-author Aaron Blake scored an advance copy of the speech — presumably smuggled out of Jindal’s office in the dead of night by a terrified whistle-blower and delivered to the reporters at a secretive “dead drop” in a suburban parking garage — and it’s a real doozy. Some real revolutionary truth-speaking from Jindal.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will deliver a forceful denunciation of his party’s Washington-centric focus in a speech to the Republican National Committee on Thursday evening, arguing that the GOP is fighting the wrong fight as it seeks to rebuild from losses at the ballot box last November.

“A debate about which party can better manage the federal government is a very small and short-sighted debate,” Jindal will tell the RNC members gathered in Charlotte, N.C. for the organization’s winter meeting, according to a copy of the speech provided to The Fix. “If our vision is not bigger than that, we do not deserve to win.”


Boy, that’s some heady stuff. “We should say we don’t like Washington DC.” “We should stop arguing that we will more effectively manage and oversee the federal government.” I wonder how loudly everyone at the RNC will boo Jindal for stating these unpopular and controversial opinions? Probably really loudly.

There’s more!

1. I don't think any of the repukes will notice . . .

Jindal is an extremely boring speaker, with absolutely no personality at all. I think it's likely that a lot of those morons (excuse me, morans) at the RNC will skip his speech or, if they do attend, fall asleep, or maybe zone out while mining for navel lint. They are not a particularly bright bunch!

3. Barf! They've infested my city and washed all the good vibes left here by the DNC

The GOP isn't going to change anything as long as they can gerrymander and rig electoral votes.
