Well done, Bobby! Writers, after all, don't have to be "writers" anymore. Regnery Publishing, home of Ann Coulter and political heavy-lifter Chuck Norris, doesn't care about the linguistic skill of Jindal himself; they want the Jindal™ magic, the brand, and now they have it! And the best part is that Bobby barely needs to lift a finger, because Regnery has people who can do that for him:
Jindal said the book will be a mix of biographical material, "lessons I've learned throughout my life" and his thoughts on a range of policy issues.
"I just want to offer my ideas and my experiences to the conversation, " Jindal said.
Much of the work on the book will be done by a co-author, Peter Schweizer, a Florida writer whose previous work includes nonfiction books about the Bush family and President Reagan, and a novel co-authored with former Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger.
"One of the reasons I'm doing this with a co-author is to make sure there's somebody else doing a lot of the heavy lifting, " Jindal said, adding that he expects that most of his work on the book will be in the evenings and on weekends.
"This isn't something that will take a lot of my time, " he said.
It's always so inspirational to hear a writer locked in the throes of obsessive passion over his craft.
