Jindal Stumbles with Speech

The post-State-of-the-Union spin game is on, and the word from some quarters is that Jindal's performance in giving the Republican rebuttal speech was lacking. Personally, I find that the guy tends to speak overly rapidly at times, when he gets hyped up. It makes him look like a neurotic. One big faux-pas was in bringing up Katrina, which was an episode that Republicans would rather not re-live. Let's see whether his status as the GOP frontrunner undergoes a re-shuffle.

If I were the Republicans, I would have gone with an Hispanic candidate. Their raw demographic numbers are even greater than the AfAm community, and that's what wins elections.

US News Writer Claims Palin Supporters Smearing Gov. Jindal as 'Secret Muslim'
By Warner Todd Huston | February 25, 2009 - 03:42

One has to wonder about the thought process of some people. Dan Gilgoff, Faith reporter with U.S. News and World Report and Huffington Post writer, is a perfect example of what I am talking about. After a February 23 posting on Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's Catholic faith, Gilgoff followed up the next day with a post claiming that Sarah Palin fans were smearing Jindal over his supposedly "secret Muslim" faith. Where did Gilgoff get such a ridiculous idea? Why, from just two commenters that posted on his entry of the 23rd, that's where.

That's right, just two people claiming in the comments section of his U.S. News post that Jindal was a secret Muslim was enough for Dan Gilgoff to decide that Sarah Palin's entire support base is smearing Bobby Jindal as a secret Muslim. Just two people. Two nuts is enough for U.S. News and World Report to slander Sarah Palin and all her followers as crazy, racist, hatemongers.
