We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”
    Jindal told Politico Republicans should “stop being the stupid party” by working to embrace a larger group of constituents rather than becoming the party of "big anything."
    The GOP governor criticized the idea that the GOP is "the party that simply protects the rich." Jindal even took a jab at Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" remarks, noting Republicans would have to be more inclusive going forward.

    He is wrong on substance, that the GOP is the party that simply protects the rich, and that voters are intellegent. He is right that if you want to get people to vote for you, you have to pander. He wont ever get my vote, though. I respect honesty and logic, not spin and emotion.

    I think you can have honesty and integrity without going down the "legitimate rape" route.

    If he does will we get birthers wanting to see his birth certificate?

    If memory serves me right his parents hadnt long got off the plane before he was born.
    The question of whether that birth occurred on an Air India 747 or a Continental Airlines 737 will be the latest conservative obsession in 2016.

    Thats a perfect example of the opposite. Instead of addressing the substance of the difference between violent rape and statutory rape, people focused on the gotcha of assuming there isnt one. Jindals advice is to avoid anything that might be controversial or politically incorrect. I think thats the problem with politics today.

    Case in point. A rational debate is impossible.
