Jindal, right-wing tomfoolery

The earth is puking – God must think you’re full of somethin’ stinky…

Because of the short-sighted bloviations we’ve become accustomed to from the Right, the office of a Louisianna governor has been forced to  respond to an Alaskan earthquake. Who knew? The emphasis is mine:

“Governor Jindal referenced the money spent on volcano monitoring to highlight the fact that a bill that was supposed to be about creating jobs ended up being a package that seemed to spend just for the sake of spending, ” Plotkin said in an e-mail response to questions.

Ummm, no, that is not actually what you said. Here’s what the governor said, in his own words:

While some of the projects in the bill make sense, their legislation is larded with wasteful spending. It includes $300 million to buy new cars for the government, $8 billion for high-speed rail projects, such as a magnetic levitation line from Las Vegas to Disneyland, and $140 million for something called volcano monitoring.

Eat those words, gov, eat ’em. Tasty, aren’t they?

  1. And precisely where does Piyush-sorry-Bobby Jindal think those ‘volcano monitors’ were going to come from? Someone has to manufacture them, someone has to emplace them/survey them, the whole 9 yards – seems to me there’s a lot of stimulus-like things going on there.
