A LOT of talk of Jindmentum from the usual hacks the last couple days. Joan Walsh correctly calls Jindal a “Southern Paul Ryan” (though I think Jindal is smarter than Ryan, to be fair), but to me that’s not the real point.
Bobby Jindal won’t be the Republican nominee anytime soon because he’s not gangster enough and because, while they may admire him, the NRO crowd will never masturbate to him. Mitt wasn’t Mr. Charisma either but at least he had shoulders you could land a 737 on and the ability to pop some caps in Rick Perry’s ass. Jindal has neither. I’m skeptical about Paul Ryan for the same reason, 3% bodyfat and sub-three-hour marathon times notwithstanding.
