It not appropriate to lay an egg and then try to pawn off the sticker by blaming the audience of not keeping up. Your play on words, was lame, unimaginative, and just plain wrong.

Jindal may be from Louisiana, but I am a third generation New Orleans and a 5th generation Louisianan, in short as louisiana as a hot Crawfish pie.

Good-bye Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne, the sweetest one, me oh my oh
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou

(Chorus)
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie and file' gumbo
'Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, fill fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou


Hank Williams Jambalaya

Well Barney's definitely a drama queen, no doubt about it. But I give credit were credit is due, left, right, or center, and it was a funny line. And if you write something of note, I'll credit you as well.

I was slightly dissapointed by Governor Jindal's response to President Obama's address. I thought it came off a little too narrated, but then again this is known to be Governor Jindal's style, straight and informed straight talk. I thought it was a little too light on the facts. I wish he could have showed us more data and information. I would have liked it if he had done something similar to his 31-point ethics plan. It was not what I expected from a Rhodes Scholar. Overall, the message was excellent and did go back to the core principals of the Republican Party. He made a good attempt to show us that the Republican Party is the party for people who believed in their father's and grandfather's lessons of self reliance. If the Republican Party is able to get that message out there, which I think it will with our excellent speakers like Governor Romney, Governor Jindal, Chairman Steele, and Governor Sanford. I think we may be venturing toward a more Goldwater-style Republican Party, but I still think we will be able to maintain our conservative social values as well.

If you don't mind sharing, what did your father and grandfather do for a living, because unless they drove across the prairie in a covered wagon, I would suggest that there is quite a bit of mythology in your statement.

Holy crap, this has got to be the most contradicting post I've ever seen on the internet.

Straight talk but lacking facts, information and data?
