A lesson he didn't learn, I guess...

Is Governor Bobby Jindal so profoundly stupid as to preach unto us a lesson from Hurricane Katrina, then moments later in the SAME SPEECH, sneer about how the government ought not to be monitoring volcanoes?

Evidently, yes.

You don't have to be a geologist to see how dumb that is. Volcanic eruptions = natural disasters = loss of life and property = bad news.

As freaking Governor of freaking LOUISIANA, Mr. Jindal must have attended a hearing or two on disaster preparedness.

This is the GOP's rising star? Wow.

Edited to add: More at Scientific American's 60-second Science blog. Read up, Bobby.


  1. I just dont feel like watching politics anymore. seriously. gah.

  2. Did you see Rachel Maddow as that speech ended? She did a "buhbuhbuhgahbuhbuhbuh." It was great and pretty much summed up my feelings on it. I was staring at the tv, head to the side, thinking "What the hell is this guy talking about?"

  3. I didn't see Rachel, but I relate to the sentiment.

  4. Please let Jindal please be the future of the Republican party, PLEASE!!!
