Creationist Gov. Jindal: GOP Presidential Hopefuls Need Their "Heads Examined"

Mon, Feb 4, 2013 at 10:26:05 am

Creationist GOP governor Bobby Jindal, who is obviously considering a run for the presidency in 2016, says any Republican considering a run for the presidency in 2016 "needs to get their head examined."

He said this in an appearance on the dumbest, craziest right wing show on Fox News, Fox and Friends. His point is that the GOP first needs to get their deceptive "messages" plotted out before they can expect to win an election.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said Monday that Republicans already thinking about the 2016 presidential race need "to get their head examined" because the party is just beginning to recalibrate its messaging in the aftermath of President Obama's reelection.

"Anybody on the Republican side even thinking or talking about running for president in 2016, I've said, needs to get their head examined," Jindal told "Fox and Friends." "And the reason I say that is, we've lost two presidential elections in a row, we need to be winning the debate of ideas, then we'll win elections."

Jindal has arguably been more successful than any other Republican politician at legitimizing the teaching of creationism and other forms of right wing pseudo-science in Louisiana, through his voucher program that funnels state money to private religious schools. That must be what he means by "winning the debate of ideas."
