(Mary) Landrieu on Jindal: Hypocrite, Shameful, Self Promoter

Mary Landrieu may have moved from the Senate to K Street, but she still has some thoughts on politics both nationally and locally. Bobby Jindal aims to sit at the intersection of those realms, and former Senator was not shy about her opinion of da Gov’ in a recent interview. Simply put, Landrieu is not impressed or as she phrased it, “Bobby Jindal is a hypocrite. He’s shameful and he’s a self promoter. And, everyone in Louisiana knows this.”

Sucker Bet? Bookies Cold on Jindal

The chattering class is abuzz with dissection of last night’s debate. Was the Donald targeted? Who won the Christie-Paul showdown. However, Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal also debated last nigh— in an earlier event nicknamed “the kids’ table.” Aside from a couple nods to Carly Fiorina, the pundits left that one alone; so, NoDef turned to the bookies for some analysis. And, the oddsmakers were not impressed by Candidate J.

Jindal Loses Push-Up Contest

Bobby Jindal’s dismal poll numbers are apparently not confined to Louisiana.

Mass Mayor Puts Jindal On Blast

Bobby Jindal is no stranger to polarizing positions or campaign moves seemingly contrary to common sense. On Saturday (7.11) night, Candidate J kept the streak alive traveling to Iowa to announce his opposition to direct federal farm subsidies.

Poll Me Something Mista: Jindal Parades in Iowa (Video)

Bobby Jindal, being a creature of habit, spent his Forth of July weekend in Iowa. On Saturday (7.04), Candidate J even marched in an Independence Day Parade in Urbandale. Parades are a hallowed rite of passage for politicians requiring elevated hand-shaking and selfie snapping skills. Jindal manages to escape gaffe free; the video appears after the jump.

ACLU: Jindal's "Religious Freedom" Not Free & Really Dumb

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit against Bobby Jindal on Tuesday (6.30). The legal action is aimed at blocking Candidate Jindal’s May 19 executive order on “religious freedom” which allows business owners to deny services to same sex couples.
