Jindal Panders to the Dumbass Crowd

Bobby Jindal is doing what every other not-yet-announced Republican presidential candidate is doing, running all over Iowa attending every knitting circle and prayer breakfast they can find to put on a pander-fest. Bobby Jindal has an interesting choice for his running mate:

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who is considering a White House run, may have narrowed his choice of running mates. During a joint appearance at a Good Friday prayer breakfast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Jindal was asked about picking Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson as his side man in the coming campaign.

“As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president—I assume that’s what you’re asking—not the other way around,” Jindal told reporters, adding, “He’s a great guy, I think he’d be a great running mate. It’d be a huge pay cut for him, so I’m not sure he’d be willing to do it.”

The rational response, of course, would have gone something like this: “Are you fucking kidding me? You think I should put a totally uneducated reality TV star a heartbeat away from the presidency? Who do you think I am, John McCain?” Because that’s just what the country needs, Sarah Palin in a bad ZZ Top beard.

    No, I think Jindal got asked a humorous question and gave a humorous answer back. Perfectly reasonable.

    One more conservative who demonstrates his total ignorance of the US Constitution.

    They are both residents of the same state.

    When Jindal said the GOP had to stop being the party of stupid I did not realize that he meant it had to become the party of more stupid.

    So, I know this might be a little embarrassing for you, but a president and a vice president on the same ticket are permitted to be from the same state.

    Mia Love will be the vice presidential nominee.

    Re Quantum Mechanic @ #4

    Yes but with the proviso that any electors from that state cannot vote for them in the Electoral College.

    There’s no way in hell Jindal is going to get the GOP nomination. He might as well pander, the sideshow clowns are the only thing the Republicans have going for them at this point anyway.

    @marcozandrini #7:

    Because, if he hadn’t, the Texas delegation could not have voted for him and the Senate would have elected the VP. Joe Lieberman would probably have been VP with Al Gore himself casting the deciding vote.

    “You think I should put a totally uneducated reality TV star a heartbeat away from the presidency? ”

    Loathe as I am to give those obnoxious faux-hicks any credit, Willie Robertson graduated from the University of Louisiana and is credited with using his degree to make Duck Commander the success it is today.

    So he’s not an uneducated hick, he just plays one on TV. He’s a well educated, fairly good at business hick.

    Re: SLC@8

    Cannot vote for both of them, but only one or the other, you mean. Yes, the link covers that technicality.
