Here's How Boring This Blog Would Have Been if Bobby Jindal Had Been Stupid Enough to Accept McCain's Offer:

Bobby wore a red tie again today. God, don't you hate red ties? If you're like me, you've had it up to here with Bobby's red ties. I bet the RNC spent, like, $20, maybe even up to $40 for that tie. And Supriya, who is neither incongruously attractive nor amusingly ugly, wore another one of her tasteful, unremarkable conservative suits. I have to go kill myself right now.

See? SEE? Do you see how bad it could have been? Thanks again, Bill Kristol, for the wonderful gift of Sarah Palin. And, of course, to Bobby Jindal, a man who knows a bad deal when he sees one.

I was just reading on some blog today that Bobby and Sarah are the "future of the Republican Party".

I can't wait. A dude that participates in exorcisms that miraculously cure cancer and a woman that needs protection from witches.

What is wrong with these people, do they really think that they need to go more conservative to win?

Princess, I'm sure you could make a lot out of the fact that he's got a kid named Slade. I mean, come on feel the noise! A Gen-X guv with a kid named after a glam rock band? Pure grist for the fodder mill!

Mr. Dork: Yes. Yes they do. Be thankful.

Drew: I just get the feeling everything hilarious would have been used up in two days.

Your probably right PSP. Though had Piyush been the veep nominee the RNC would have probably spent $150K on string-bow ties, mustache wax, white linen suits, and an ivory cane (made from Ganesha's very own tusks!) to help him enhance his Southern-ness.

I dunno. I think her suit is KINDA WRINKLY.

I am just old enough to remember a nursery rhyme--which also was immortalized by Bullwinkle in cartoon form--that goes:

Bobby Shaftoe has gone to sea
He'll come back and marry me
Pretty Bobby Shaftoe

This has become enough of a mind virus that whenever I see a photo of the Governor of Louisiana, I think, "Bobby Shaftoe," rather than Jindal. Where the "pretty" comes in... well, the mind isn't always logical, especially mine.

Can't wait till they introduce Piyush Jindal to the republican base.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

No kidding, Mikey. I can hear them now: "He's a secret Hindu who will sacrifice us to his monkey gods!!"

When they do introduce him, not being a white male or female, I can see the heads EXPLODING! Except for those opportunists who will hold their noses while pushing Repuke diversity.

Hey, now that Obama won, anyone can be President theoretically. Native American, Eskimo, Indian, Asian, Pastafarian, Wiccan, Transgendered, Gay, the list goes on....

The thing is, no matter what you are or how you identify, you need to chops, you need the skills, you need the appeal. We are all getting there and the more we don't pit our differences against the rest of humanity, the more we win.

Hey, we just had two white dudes in office who didn't care about anyone, white, black, asian, straight, gay, male, female...than themselves and their own enrichment. So white don't make right. Show me a person who truly cares about this country and trying to lift up all of it's citizens and I'll show you someone who can win and lead. Oh...that would be Obama for starters, bitches. Bring on the rest of the best.

I think Supriya may in fact be incongruously attractive. Please reconsider.

I'll bet my supply of saffron that Supriya looks lovely in sari.

Give Supriya a super duper stylist and some face time with Cindy Mccain, and we could get to Bollywood levels of glamour, which in the worldwide Glam Premier League is A-number-1 tiptop!

An eyebrow trim would be a good start.

This puts me in the mood for a chutney Slushy.

If you want me to say that she's ravishingly gorgeous, sorry, but she just isn't. She's an attractive woman; not astonishingly so. You all may be missing the point of this post.

Maybe we're missing the point, maybe we are practicing our porcine mascara techniques. In this case it's not a sow we're making-up, but a bore :-)

Definitely would've run out of material within a few days. The guy and his wife are BO-RING. I can't see where he'll get any more exciting, unless Supriya starts wearing saris (and maybe he does too!). Even so, that would be good for what, another day or so? Unless we on the left turn into the kind of wackos they have on the right, we'll NEVER get any kind of "He's a secret Hindu who will sacrifice us to his monkey gods!!" wave going. We're all just too sane.

Jindal boring? Uh, google him and read about when he thought he might need an exorcism during college.
