There's nothing like the rantings of a madman (Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rush Limbaugh) or woman (Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Ann Coulter ) to give us the desire for some good old-time religion. Not to disappoint, here's Louisiana's Republican Governor Bobby Jindal. He's got something stuck in his craw, and I don't think it's a New Orleans crawdad or crawfish. I think it's... the silent, secret war on religion? Yup, that's what Jindal's railing about. Got to admit, when he gives testimony, he gets possessed and encompassed by "the spirit."
HuffPo had this:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) delivered a scathing attack on the Obama administration at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library Thursday night, saying an “onslaught of lawsuits based on anti-discrimination” laws amount to a “silent war on religious liberty.”
Whoa Nellie. A silent war on religious liberty. I hadn't heard anything about that. Oh, wait, that's because it's silent. My bad.
As the adage goes, "The Lord works in mysterious ways." If that's so, he gave us Bobby Jindal as his most recent spokesperson. Then again, maybe this is the big guy's personal joke on all of us -- or even more hauntingly, perhaps Jindal's got that special ability -- to see things that aren't there. It worked for Haley Joel Osment in THE SIXTH SENSE. Not so much for Alex Wagner on NOW.
