JUN 30 This post on the WSJ's Washington Wire blog covers the most important issue of the presidential race: whether the bogus online Louisiana Governor's Mansion chocolate chip cookie recipe is better than the recipe Hillary Clinton gave to Family Circle back in 1992, the first time Bill was elected. There's a video of Bobby Jindal picking the one he likes best. Oy.
JUN 30 Gambit brings us up to date on the first licenses issued in the NOLA area on Monday, and provides, as well, some context for the cynical, political efforts by Buddy Caldwell and the Governor to use this situation to get themselves some press.
JUN 30 This is an interesting video posted by Now This on Facebook. It's a young woman who is Indian-American and a resident and native of Louisiana, just like Bobby Jindal. She has some advice for him: try embracing who you are. That might help those crappy poll numbers. Huh.
JUN 30 The Red Shtick offers this post on the current debate regarding symbols of the Confederacy, replacing that flag and statues of dead guys with a common groundcover known as Confederate jasmine. Anyone want to lay odds on how soon it will show up on Twitter with a campaign to save the flowers?
JUN 30 Wonkette puts in its two cents on the big (?) Jindal presidential announcement of last week, stating here that Bobby Jindal is "the wingnut presidential candidate nobody's been waiting for."
JUN 30 KPEL reports here on a study of the economic impact of the legalization of same-sex marriage (or, as we like to call it, MARRIAGE) in Louisiana. Businesses can look to make money off this SCOTUS decision, the study found. And it's probably going to be even better than outlined here, because there appear to be no variables measuring fabulousness.
JUN 29 The Picayune outlines Bobby Jindal's appearance on Sunday's edition of "Meet the Press." Bobby's statements last week, implying that he would block implementation of the SCOTUS decision on gay marriage, had the desired effect and got him some national press. So when Chuck Todd asked him how he planned to defy the Supreme Court he said he wouldn't.
JUN 29 This post on Rolling Stone attempts to answer the question that a lot of people have about Bobby Jindal: how did a guy who looks so good on paper turn into the crashing, burning, pathetic excuse for a presidential candidate that he became last week? It's an entertaining analysis, down to the very last paragraph - which is priceless.
JUN 29 Bob Mann pens this scathing post on Salon about Bobby Jindal's political rise and fall. Bob doesn't hold anything back in this one, calling Jindal a "cynical charlatan."
JUN 26 If you're an inhabitant of the Twitterverse, you might have seen #bobbyjindalissowhite trending on Thursday. That trend began with a comedian named Hari Kondabolu, who took issue with some of Bobby Jindal's comments regarding his heritage during his announcement speech. The results are hilarious, BuzzFeed reports here.
