it is such a good thing for jindal as well as for indian-americans that jindal did not become the governor of louisiana!
imagine the headlines if he had screwed up with katrina like kathleen blanco did:
"brown guy messes up"
"incompetent hindu" (of course for purposes of abuse all indians are hindus, even though bobby j is a 'born-again' christist and a loud one at that)
"bloody indians. first they steal our jobs. now they let our people die. where's the nearest tree and a big rope?"
"send the brown immigrant guy back to wherever he came from"
"let's open a concentration camp and put all the brown people in it (as we did to the japanese)"
"if only we had a good strong white guy as governer (like good old huey long)"
hard for them to say this sort of stuff about a native cajun (?) white female like kathleen blanco. thank you, blanco, for being the fall gal for all brown people. of course you won only because you were running against a brown guy, so this is sweet irony. god does have a sense of humor.
we would have been reading about the 'short, happy life of bobby jindal' otherwise (with apologies to ernest hemingway).
