The Party’s Over

Say it ain’t so, Bobby!  Say it ain’t so!!

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Monday called on Republicans to “stop being the stupid party” and make a concerted effort to reach a broader swath of voters with an inclusive economic message that pre-empts efforts to caricature the GOP as the party of the rich.

“We’ve got to make sure that we are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, big anything,” Jindal told POLITICO in a 45-minute telephone interview. “We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys.”

“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments — enough of that,” Jindal said. “It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.” — Politico.com

Holy hot curry powder, Batman!  Sounds like Gov Bobby just became a socialist.  Where’s his birth certificate?  Where’s his college transcripts?  And did you notice that he’s Black or something?

I hope the ‘Pubs dismiss this surrender-monkey’s faggot-speak and conclude that the real problem is that the GOP isn’t socially and economically wingnut enough: that the problem is that their candidate at the top of the ticket was too mainstream and accommodating.  That they storm abortion clinics and slaughter physicians; that they round up illegal aliens and run them out of the country; that Creationist textbooks replace Darwin’s Origin of Species, etc.

If it works for the god-loving gun toting patriots of Mississippi and Alabama, why ain’t it good enough for the rest of Christian America?  And fuck everybody else??

This pretty well summarizes how luminaries like long-time GOP leader.Richard A. Viguerie, the chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, sees it.  “Republican leaders behind the epic election failure of 2012 should be replaced with leaders more in tune to the conservative base of the Republican party,” he said.  — Dailycaller

But seriously: Good morning, Bobby.  Welcome back.  Too bad you lack the balls to state your case before it matters, but better late than never.  Your team blew a huge opportunity, the effects of which may last a whole lot longer than you’d like to admit.  But at least you learned something, and now at long last you’re doing something constructive.

So tell us — how do you feel about your state’s secession petition?

    No big thinking, either. That would really turn off the base.

    They’re in worse shape than they were after 2008, losing all the ground they gained in 2010 midterms. They managed to do what liberals nationwide have failed at: reversed the entire country’s orientation rightward, which has been relentless since 2000. Personally I hope they keep bickering for another 20 years — and nothing tells me they’re too smart to avoid that..
