SNL Jabs Jindal Again

Bobby Jindal has long been a metaphorical punchline to many Louisianans. Now, Saturday Night Live is making Candidate J a literal punchline for many Americans. A sketch during this weekend’s (10.03) show focused on a satirical drug called “Abilify” that will cure people of dementia causing them to think that they can be the POTUS. As one can imagine, Jindal provided an easy kicker.

Jindal: Kindle or Dwindle

Bobby Jindal has puled consistently negative reviews from voters at home and nationally. However, in the last 24 hours da Gov’ has upgraded to mixed reviews. Two powerhouse political pubs have logged in on Candidate J: Politico is predicting that Jindal is next to drop out of the race and is pegging Jindal as a dark horse to win Iowa.

Jindal: Biggest Discrimination Is Against Christians

Bobby Jindal is at again. As da Gov’s polling hovers around one percent, he continues to grasp at culture wars in an attempt to build support. During Wednesday’s (9.16) kiddie table GOP debate Jindal posited that American Christians are the most persecuted group in the country.

Trump Card: Bobby J Rants About The Donald

Bobby Jindal’s presidential campaign is a mere blip on the polls. So, in a time honored political tradition, Candidate J is attacking the man at the top of the polls. Jindal used the entirety of a morning speech at the National Press Club to attack Donald Trump who he describes as a “dangerous” “egomaniac.”

Medicaid Escapade

Planned Parenthood Takes Jindal to Court

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is taking the Jindal administration to court. The legal fracas is aimed at blocking the Governor’s plan to cut off funding to the organization.

(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. Fox News chose the ten G.O.P. candidates with the highest poll numbers to participate in their  primetime Thursday (8.06) debate. Jindal did not make the cut. However, Candidate J found some consolation by participating in a push up contest with for BuzzFeed.

Jindal Targets Planned Parenthood

By Lucy Leonard

Though Democrats yesterday (8.3) blocked the Republican-led attempt to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will not be deterred. Following the release of undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood officials allegedly discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research, Jindal called not only for an investigation of the organization by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals and the F.B.I., but also for the termination of the Medicaid provider contract between the DHH and Planned Parenthood. 

Mass Mayor Puts Jindal On Blast

Bobby Jindal may not make the first Republican primary debate, but he has found himself wrapped in an argument with a different opponent. The Mayor of Sommerville, Massachusetts slammed Candidate J as a “fear monger” and demanded that Jindal “come and get me!”
