Yesterday I referred to Bobby Jindal as a “right-wing nutjob.” I regret that, as I prefer not to call names. I got carried away.
I should have said that he seems like a right-wing nutjob. A friend of mine says Jindal acts like that to get the so-called “Bubba vote.” He says Jindal has to play that game because those voters are skeptical of his skin color. I find that a little hard to swallow.
It looks like he will be our next governor — no surprise there. I hope for the sake of Louisiana that he does not govern like a nutjob. I understand he’ll be the youngest governor in the country, and the first non-white governor of Louisiana since P.B.S. Pinchback. And as everybody knows he’s super-intelligent. We could do a lot worse.
PS: In the end I voted for Campbell.
