Pinned Down, Jindal Sticks to 'Talking Points'

Bayoubuzz Publisher Stephen Sabludowsky asked the governor at a press conference today "to detail the specific 'pledge' he made to the legislature (not to veto the pay raise) and said that the public had a right to know about that deal and that he was not answering the questions.
Unfortunately, I got three three-pointer

"If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"

Jim, that's the way to do it. Don't answer the questions. Keep repeating the talking points. Of course, you come across as a robot, but that doesn't matter. That was always one of my problems with him. He seemed robotic, with his fast-talking spew of numbers and "facts".

He has always been that way. Get him out of the structured setting and he can't handle it. He is great, as you say, at spewing numbers and facts but he can't think on his feet.
