Takes one to know one: GOP edition

Posted By on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 at 8:23 AM

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal made headlines yesterday by criticizing his own party.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called on the Republican Party to “stop being the stupid party” on Thursday as GOP leaders promised fundamental changes to help stave off future losses.

In the keynote address at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting, Jindal said the GOP doesn’t need to change its values but “might need to change just about everything else we are doing.”

“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.”

Stupid is as stupid does. Wreck public education. Wreck medical support for the poor. Give away billions in tax cuts to the wealthy. Jindal is the fellow who, until a public outcry forced a course change, was going to cut off hospice care under Medicaid. Hospice care! Talk about bizarre.

Jindal's has been down this road before. You can do all the stupid and hurtful things you want. Just don't talk about it. He and his pals really do believe the stuff about the "takers" and women.
