Jindal Logic


Bobby Jindal has not been relevant to the national political scene for years, but that did not stop the former Louisiana governor from launching a quixotic bid for the Republican nomination. Apparently, the politico formerly known as Candidate J finally got the memo. In a Friday (5.06) interview with CNN, he stated that he would not be attending the GOP convention in Cleveland.


Rainbow Warrior: Edwards Issues LGBTQ Protections


On Wednesday (4.13), Governor John Bel Edwards made good on a campaign promise and signed an executive order rescinding Bobby Jindal’s previous religious freedom order. In addition, the current Governor issued a second order  aimed at protecting all citizens including transgendered Louisianans from discrimination.


Gov. Edwards to Revoke "Religious Freedom" Order


With “religious freedom” bills back in the national news again, Governor John Bel Edwards is getting ready to follow through on a campaign promise. Deadline Hollywood reported that Edwards is preparing to revoke a Jindal era executive order that allows businesses to to deny service to same sex couples.


La Politicos React to Scalia Passing


On Saturday, new of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death broke. Louisiana’s top elected leaders reacted to the judge’s passing with a mix of mourning and lots of the reverence that one would expect form the conservative delegation. Oh yeah, and Bobby Jindal weighed in with some political alarmism.


Bel Edwards Era Begins

"There is seriously a lot of work ahead of us!"



Bobby Jindal is no longer the governor of Louisiana. On Monday (1.11), John Bel Edwards was sworn in by Chief Justice Bernette Johnson as the Pelican’s State’s latest governor in a ceremony on the steps of the state Capitol. An uplifiting speech calling for unity and change then followed.


Colbert Skewers Jindal in "Hungry For Power Games" (Video)


The end of Bobby Jindal’s campaign did not mean the end of Candidate J’s national role as a punchline. After news of the ended effort broke, Stephen Colbert delivered a “Hunger Games” style sendoff to da Gov’.


Jindal Out


Well, that’s four years down the drain. On Tuesday (11.17) afternoon, Bobby Jindal announced that he will be suspending his presidential bid. With poll numbers in the low single digits and flagging finances, the move came as a surprise to few.


Jindal: No More Syrian Refugees


Louisiana will not be providing a home for any more Syrian refugees in the near future. On Monday (11.16), Governor Bobby Jindal issued an executive order forbidding the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the Pelican State.


Jindal's Juicebox


Bobby Jindal is not making much of a splash on the national stage as evidenced by his one percent poll numbers. Candidate J tried to change that last night at Fox Business’ kiddie table debate. Unfortunately, da Gov’ wound up a punchline again. Instead, of garnering attention for policy, he set social media aflame for a moment about “juice boxes.”


Ansari Gives Full One Percent to Playing Jindal


In Louisiana, Bobby Jindal has long provided comic fodder. Recent single digit poll numbers have given national comics a few opportunities to get in on the fun(nies). In a Wednesday (11.04) night segment, Jimmy Fallon interviewed Jindal. More to the point, Fallon interviewed Aziz Ansari playing Jindal.
