Jindal in LaLa Land

The governor held a press conference at the mansion today (after greeting protesters in Shreveport) and revealed that he is probably the only person in the state today who is 'proud' of the legislature.
He also reaffirmed that he was 'sorry' the legislature doubled their pay and promised to keep better control of them from now on. Good luck on that one.
Sticking to his talking points as always, the governor said “We had some tremendous victories from this session that involved every single agency in our government pushing the people’s reform agenda. We have a lot more work to do, but our accomplishments from this session are many and they are great steps forward to the New Louisiana we are working toward to become the best place in the world to raise a family, get a quality education and pursue a great career.”

The entire press release from Melissa and Bobby can be viewed at Bayou Buzz.

Jim, I never thought Jindal was a handsome man, but you seem to find the most unflattering pictures. Do you do that on purpose?

He's had "tremendous victories" and "great steps forward" in the "people's reform agenda". That is a huge stretch, especially the "people" part. I'm laughing as I type, because his choice of words reminds me of quotes from Mao Tse Tung's "Little Red Book".

Oh my god, the Sayings of Chairman Mao. I had one of those you know, back in the 60's. Shhh, don't tell anyone.
As for the pictures, well, um, did I deliberately pick an unflattering one? Let's just say it jumped out at me.
