The "rest of the story" I heard on NPR said that Jindal may be peaking a little too early. Mind you, this was before he bombed last night.

We didn't really need that Mr. Roger's story, Bobby, and he sounds terrible. "The Republican response of Katrina should be a model of how to move the nation?" Is this guy kidding me?
I've always liked Jindal (since I've known of him) and his performance last night was pretty dissapointing. He was very cartoonish.

My point is that candidates rise upon their own press, much of which they create themselves (or at least their staffs). If Bobby sees daylight and enough cash to go with it, he, like Obama, will jump at the opportunity.
Yeah, but I think a lot of the Republican rank and file members are aware of the fact that they are having problems attracting both younger and non-White voters - hence the rise of Steele to the position of GOP Chair. It seems pretty clear to me that that was in direct response to the successful election of the first Minority President - and criticisms that the GOP is in danger of becoming (as I mentioned) the party of the Old White Male. I certainly couldn't see that happening before Obama came along and had such success.

I personally think he is a Ballchinian (or is that Chinballian...I get so confused these days) and I also expected him to break out a set of steak knives made by Ronnco and start opening up the 800 number for you to buy them.A goofball.

What about Yellowstone? That puts millions at risk.

Lassen and Mt Ranier are active volcanos Unlike earthquakes they provide warnings so people can leave. Why would that be a bad thing. What about the tornado warnings? Are those wasteful? Hurricanes?

One of the things being addressed is infrastructure and being able to warn of impending disastor and removing as many potential victums as possible is part of how we save money on all those emergency services that might not be needed.

I love it. If your skin is not lily white and you aren't a fat old white evengo-fundie wingnut, then it simply must mean you're an immigrant; after all, there are immutable laws of the universe: White=God's People, no others need apply (GOP Rule Book, Page 1).

"the Republican rank and file members are aware"

An utter impossibility.
