Unsupport Of Jindal

Everybody these days is talking about how Jindal's poor performance in responding to the non-State of the Union is the "last nail in the coffin" for his presidential aspirations. Let me just say that 2012 is a long way away, and giving a boring, or even condescending speech in 2009 isn't going to stop any real contender dead in his tracks. I disagreed with all of Jindal's policies, but the content of his speech wasn't any lighter than most political speeches let alone most responses to a State of the Union.

He can work on style over the next two years before he has to start running in earnest. John Kerry has had a long career in politics despite being pretty boring on the stump and he was a hair's breadth away from being president. Don't count Jindal out yet.

I just find it hilarious how hard the Republicans are trying to find and promote any brown face they can find. I also question wether the Republican base will actually let someone of color win the primary.
