Desiccated Man in Tie: We ain't need no money for no volcanos!

With the pressures of a camera pointed at him combined with the dead weight of the Wide Stance party's future electoral hopes, desperately underfed Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal heroically stood up long enough to rebut Barack Obama's address to Congress last night with a combination of knife-sharp jowls and spoon-fed idiocy. Quoth the governor of the state that endured Katrina, a disaster at least as hilarious in its armchair conception as any volcano:

JINDAL: While some of the projects in the 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 magnetic levitation line from Las Vegas to Disney Land. 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. [link to video]
The part about Disney Land and Las Vegas is false as well as nasty, but going without food does tend to degrade basic cognition.

No, he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he has the right priorities for winning the hearts and minds of the short-sighted and depraved.
