One of the few decent Republicans calls most everyone else in the party stupid. I highly doubt they will listen to him or heed his advice. I expect them to drum him out.

""We've got to stop being the stupid party. It's time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults," he said. "We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. I'm here to say we've had enough of that."

Jindal's comments are about optics. Yes-- The Republican party needs to change and not put people behind the microphone who say bizarre and offensive things.

However, to get my vote, they must stop having bizarre and offensive beliefs.

I don't understand why they feel the need to beat the abortion drum, something that was settled 40 years ago. Let the pro lifers start their own party. And leave the gay people alone and why don't the Republicans just wish them the best and stop commenting on that subject as well?

When I was a kid the GOP was the party of common sense and business. Now they are TV evangelists.

The majority of the people here in the US call for VP Joe Biden to stop being the "stupid VP".

Biden and Pelosi are an embarrassment to sane and logical people through out the world. They both should be tested for early Alzheimers.

Default Louisiana Governor calls on Republicans to stop being the "stupid party"

Unfortunately for Jindal, the stupids still prevail in the GOP.

He probably shot himself in the foot with that comment. Nutballs never realize that they're nuts and they highly resent that reality being tossed in their faces.

Old Gringo... do you believe Biden and Pulosi represent sane and normal people also ?

Both parties have more than their share of "Stupid".

"damage the brand" -- he's probably referring to the GOP. he should be referring to the damage done to America's brand by these people.

From what I've seen, Pelosi is way too far left for my taste, but I'm not in her district, so it doesn't matter all that much. Biden wants to go farther on gun control than I'd like, but otherwise he's OK.

Yep.

But it sure isn't an even distribution.
