So Much For Reform
Bobby Jindal, a biology major during his college days, was elected Governor of Louisiana with much fanfare as a candidate who claimed he would reform the state's corrupt, backward government. Now, even though as a biologist he presumably knows better, he has signed into law a bill that would allow creationist bullshit to be introduced into science classes in the state. How is pandering to creationist nutcases in Louisiana "reform?" Instead, he just shows himself to be another politician, willing to do or say anything to polish his credentials as a potential vice-presidential candidate. In this case, however, it only makes him more attractive to the kind of wing-nuts who wouldn't possibly vote Democratic anyway.
