Bobby Bends Over
Jindal also responded to Michael Steele’s recent flap about Limbaugh: “I’m glad he apologized. I think the chairman is a breath of fresh air for the party. As I said before, I think Rush is a leader for many conservatives and says things that people are concerned about.”
“Says things that people are concerned about”? What the fuck does that mean?
“While some of the projects in the [Democrats’ stimulus] bill make sense, their legislation is larded with wasteful spending. It includes $300 million to buy new cars for the government, $8 billion for high-speed rail projects, such as a ‘magnetic levitation’ line from Las Vegas to Disneyland, and $140 million for something called ‘volcano monitoring.’ Instead of monitoring volcanoes, what Congress should be monitoring is the eruption of spending in Washington, DC.”

Bobby Jindal criticized as unnecessary pork on national television Tuesday night.” No word yet on whether the Jindal administration supports “something” called hurricane monitoring.
