Creationist Governor Bobby Jindal Is Calling Other People “Stupid” Again

Anti-science right wing governor apparently lacks a mirror
Politics • Views: 26,266

The media and right wing blogs are all buzzing about Gov. Bobby Jindal’s speech to the Republican National Committee, a warmed-over rehash of the talking points he’s been developing since the GOP lost the election, saying the Republicans have to stop being the “stupid party:” Bobby Jindal to GOP: Don’t Be ‘The Stupid Party’.

You can read the whole thing at the right wing Washington Examiner, where they think it was “dynamite:” Full Text: Bobby Jindal’s Dynamite Speech to the Republican National Committee in Charlotte.

The fact is, there’s absolutely nothing new or innovative about this speech. Jindal is simply repeating the same old tired anti-government lines the right has been recycling for decades, and if you’re looking for ideas on how to “reform” the party here, you’re wasting your time. It’s just another attempt to repackage the same failed ideology in something that looks like a shiny new box. From a distance.

But I have to admit, Jindal has huge brass cojones to call out the GOP for being “stupid” — when he has done more than any other Republican governor to legitimize the teaching of creationism, climate change denial, and all manner of religious right pseudo-science in Louisiana.

For one example out of many, a religious school funded by Jindal’s voucher program teaches that evolution is disproved by the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.

I don’t know, Bobby; that sounds pretty freaking stupid to me. However, I fully expect the media to applaud Jindal for this deceptive, self-promoting hooey.
