Jindal Wants You to Tell the Media to Stop Pointing Out His Stupidity by Giving Him Your Email Address

From The Publisher

Bobby Jindal has jumped the shark.

I figured he would, eventually. I just never imagined he’d do it before he got around to officially announcing his candidacy for president.

I thought somewhere down the line during his bid for the GOP nomination, after getting trounced in a couple of primaries, he’d melt down and commit some embarrassingly desperate act completely unbecoming of a legitimate presidential candidate.

That act came yesterday.

Following his now infamous “no-go zone” speech in London and his ensuing doubling-down on his no-go zone claims (which were based on discredited and retracted comments from a chronically wrong political hack on Fox News), Jindal was the target of some backlash. Lots of backlash. International backlash.

What a goddam crybaby. If Vitter wins, that’ll make two consecutive Louisiana governors who wear diapers.

Around the world, people ridiculed Jindal for sticking to a ridiculous narrative about Western cities being ruled by Sharia law, which was originally peddled by a sketchy Steven Emerson, even after Emerson retracted his comments, and after Fox News apologized four times— FOUR TIMES — for airing the discussion in the first place. Despite their profuse and uncharacteristic crawfishing, the mayor of Paris said she plans to sue the network for slander.

Well, apparently, our very own Rhodes scholar Bobby Jindal isn’t concerned about being sued for claiming that cities like Paris and Birmingham, England, have mythical Islamic-run areas where non-Muslims dare not tread. But he is concerned about being roundly mocked and criticized.

That’s why he and his political action committee are circulating an online petition asking supporters to “tell the liberal media to stop their shameless attacks against Governor Jindal for telling the truth about radical Islam.” The request is in all caps and a bold font, because he’s super serious about getting the mean ol’ media to stop picking on him.

What a goddam crybaby. If Vitter wins, that’ll make two consecutive Louisiana governors who wear diapers.

An online petition, complete with a YouTube video montage of pundits calling him out on his bullshit, asking regular people like me and you to tell the free press not to make fun of him for parroting the message of a guy the British prime minister called “a complete idiot”? And this guy ostensibly wants to be the leader of the free world?

If Jindal can’t even handle Chris Matthews’ words, how in the hell is he going to handle threats from ISIS? You think Vladimir Putin would ever respect a guy who shamelessly solicits the public to insulate him from getting his feelings hurt?

If Jindal wants to be the savior of the GOP, maybe he should ask himself, “What would Reagan do?” Answer: He wouldn’t ask everyday people to get the press to leave him alone.

You think Vladimir Putin would ever respect a guy who shamelessly solicits the public to insulate him from getting his feelings hurt?

Ironically, the name of Jindal’s PAC is “Stand Up to Washington.” Shit, he can’t even stand up to Paul Begala, which is why he needs your help via some bullshit, impotent petition.

And how does Jindal want you to enlist as a minion of muteness? A soldier of censorship? Why, it’s as simple as entering your email address and ZIP code. And then being thanked “for signing up for email updates.” And then being asked to donate to his PAC.

So, basically, following his Clark Griswold-esque European vacation, Jindal is playing the sympathy card by being a thin-skinned wuss in order to augment his email list and collect info on potential voters so that he can raise more money to — I’m guessing here — tell America that Obama needs to stand up to radical Islam?

I would borrow a phrase from Mary Matalin and say that Bobby Jindal talks like John Wayne but acts like Peewee Herman, but that would be an insult to Peewee Herman.RedShtick-Top-ColumnStop
