Note to those who are hyperventilating: I'm about 100% sure Rush knows this is meant to be taken lightheartedly and with good humor. I appreciate so many of you rushing to defend him and condemn me for this post. Now calm down. — Erick
Leaving church a short while ago following Good Friday services and contemplating the death and resurrection of Christ our Lord, I nearly had an aneurysm getting in my car and turning on Rush Limbaugh.
He was suggesting Bobby Jindal for Vice President. Shut your pie hole, Rush Limbaugh. Don't ever do that again.
I am an elected city councilman in Georgia. I have lived in Georgia for nearly 15 years. Louisiana is my home. I believe in this great republic of ours there are no indispensable men, perhaps save Rush, but he's testing that theory today, but Bobby Jindal is a necessary man in Louisiana at this time.
Louisiana too is going through a resurrection. Bobby has successfully had two special sessions of the legislature to reform taxes in the state and reform ethics in the state. Being there two weeks ago, there is a new pulse in the state. The state has a heartbeat again. People again believe the state is salvagable.
Rush Limbaugh would have John McCain ruin that all by picking Bobby as his Veep. Bobby can't be Veep because Louisiana needs Bobby at this time. The state cannot spare him, even for the good of the party or the good of the nation. Besides, I think Bobby has improved odds of outright being President in four to eight years.
The only saving grace of Rush daring to suggest this is that it is Rush suggesting it. Surely McCain will discount the idea outright.
Rush, we should get behind Governor Palin. She's conservative, she's smart, and she looks a whole heck of a lot better than Bobby Jindal or John McCain. Oh, and if she were to leave her post, her state would not slide back into the gutter.
So Rush, stop with pushing Jindal. Louisiana needs him too much right now.
