then, giving the republican response, louisiana governor bobby jindal shows up and talks to us like we're all in
i mean, i know nobody watched him, but...(and your reading of this next word should be way over the top)...REALLY? this is a joke, right? if jindal's chance at the republican nomination for president in 2012 doesn't at least dim after this performance, i will let jindal personally exorcise the dancing gay demons from my inner soul (and i like the ones who dance.) seriously, jindal's heritage is not indian, he's from mayberry! this is embarrassing, and it's the best the republican party can do. (and believe me, jindal's no goober.)
and...okay i must have heard this wrong (dvr says no) – jindal just said the government didn't help us out during katrina, so we know not to look to them for help during this economic crisis! hey, jindal. that was bush, remember? your president? the guy from your party? we had an election in november and he's gone.
seriously, how about this, bj: there are obvious times when we need government – say, a huge economic crisis, an oncoming depression, or a gigantic natural disaster – and we found during katrina that government didn't work very well, so we need to fix it.
no, no, beej, you're right. because bush royally screwed up katrina, don't go trusting government ever again. (thanks, by the way, for reminding us of that colossal failure.)
um. blah-blah-blah...our party is determined to regain your trust. but, you just told us you don't even trust the government, right? and aren't you part of the governmm...? ugh. i've stopped listening. oh, yes...great struggles/accomplishments of the united states, oh good. you forgot to mention the stonewall riots and the segway human transporter.
wait. did he just say we have the most "brazilian" economy?
UPDATE 11:20 p.m. – ah-ha! here's where i've heard that voice before...
listen, and compare:
