The Unkindest Cut Among Quite A Few, All Admittedly Well-Deserved

by

The reviews have not been kind to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal
and his rebuttal of President Obama's speech. His
cringe-worthy performance has been called sing-songy, amateurish,
awkward, laughable, "a disaster...a form of nihilism" by the usually
low-key David Brooks, and my personal favorite, "not exactly terrific"
by Nina Easton, of Fox News yet.

Still, comparisons to the
stunningly weird Kenneth the page on NBC's "30" Rock seem extreme.
Captain Kangaroo, perhaps, or Mister Rogers, or Pee Wee Herman, but
Jindal was nowhere as entertaining as Kenneth. Jeez. Between Michael
Steele and now this, we can't wait to see what the once-upon-a-time
party of ideas comes up with next.
