Bobby Jindal Is a LIAR

I watched the Republican rebuttal to President Obama's State of the State (was that what it was called?) the other night and thought he came out with some good points (Government spends too much, Government thinks we're idiots, Government is the problem, etc.), but then it got ridiculous.

There was a childlike quality to Jindal's speech and at times I couldn't tell if he was trying to talk to children or if he was the child himself.

I mean, it seemed like he thinks the American people are too simple to listen to intelligent debate, and in some cases I think he's right. I often think we, as a society, are simply idiots.

But Jindal's speech was over the top. Now, I find out, one of the most compelling points to the idiots in the crowd, the part about his sheriff yelling at a federal bureaucrat over the phone during the Katrina episode, was - get this -




Gotta love politicians! They make shit up all the time and expect us simpletons to believe it. They're more crass than preachers in the tent.

From TPMMuckraker:
Remember that story Bobby Jindal told in his big speech Tuesday night -- about how during Katrina, he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with a local sheriff who was battling government red tape to try to rescue stranded victims?

Turns out it wasn't actually, you know, true.
