IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR THE SKELETONS TO LEAP OUT OF GOV. BOBBY JINDAL'S CLOSET AFTER HIS RANT ON TV TUESDAY...ANYBODY ELSE GOT SOME GOOD KATRINA STORIES TO SHARE?
IF THIS THE KIND OF COMPETITION THE GOP PLANS TO THROW UP AGAINST OBAMA IN 2012...it looks bad for the Elephant set. See what you think about this column by...

"It is a bit early to order the 57th Presidential Inaugural collectibles but the smart money has to be on Obama getting re-elected in 2012. This week was a major victory for Obama, not only with the signing of his stimulus package, but also with a well-received prime time address that bolstered his approval ratings while the country continues its economic nosedive.
It couldn’t get any better for Obama, could it? Oh, yes… I forgot about the other actors in our national political drama, the hapless Republican Party. First, Michael Steele announces that he is going to start a civil war within the ranks to get rid of sitting Republican United States Senators because of their vote on the stimulus package. Second, the party revives Newt Gingrich as its new (or retro) leader of the loyal opposition. Yesterday, the CPAC true believers booed Tucker Carlson for having the nerve to give them political and media advice that might actually work in the 2010 midterm elections.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the cherry on top of the unpalatable sundae is the remarks by Governor Bobby Jindal on Tuesday night. Not only did the GOP front runner look like a spelling bee contestant that has stage fright, it has been learned that his story about the Louisiana sheriff was totally made up. Jindal’s presidential run and the best hope of the Republican Party to offer an alternative to Obama over the next three years failed miserably.
For the GOP, it’s back to the drawing board. For Obama, you better keep the name of that horseshoe maker a secret… everybody is going to want one."
