Sorry, Jesse, it just ain't the same.

Is this a Thing?

How bad of a job did Bobby Jindal do governing the state? Even in Canada his reputation for leaving Louisiana to go run for president is known. Here, A Canada Free Press writer refers to Chris Christie's abandonment governing of New Jersey as "pulling a Jindal."

Banks in Lake Charles were defaced with the graffiti "Fudge MLK Jr.", except "Fudge" wasn't "Fudge." It was, you know, the mother of them all. I am guessing someone really needed to make a deposit and got angry that the banks closed in observance. Either that or some folks just can't handle a day off.

Does this Count as Plagiarism?

The student who introduced President Obama to the crowd in New Orleans Baton Rouge last week had her car broken into.
