Jindal-Robertson 2016! Duck Dynasty Goes To Washington?
by Liz Lee
It is widely expected that Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal will have a go at running for president in 2016. However, Jindal has yet to make an official announcement regarding any campaign.
Despite this, however, he did manage to toy with the idea in Cedar Rapids, Iowa while speaking at a prayer breakfast. Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame was also present as the event’s keynote speaker and was introduced by Jindal.
Jindal was asked later if he thought Robertson would make a good running mate in the 2016 presidential election. He stated:
“As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president – I assume that’s what you’re asking – not the other way around. He’s a great guy. I think he’d be a great running mate. It’d be a huge pay cut for him, so I’m not sure he’d be willing to do it.”
He also added that Robertson is “an icon, a cultural figure, and a hero of many.”
Jindal has been in Iowa in an attempt to connect with “evangelical conservative activists.” He used the speaking opportunity to also voice his disappointment in the amendments made to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana.

Ted Nugent, the Duck Dynasty Dude, Ted Cruz, George Zimmerman — conservatism has turned into such a freak show.

Indeed, what and who they chose as heros and leaders leaves much to be desired.

Jindal…LOL. Last time I saw someone that goofy, there was a pudgy tour boat captain beating him with a hat.

although he may be too old to survive the ordeal, I believe the best the crud on the right could do would be Daffy Duck – humorous, slightly mean, always ridiculing etc.

All of this crapola reminds me of Hee Haw skits from the 70’s.
Don’t forget to call Jr. Samples for a used car at BR-549.

Other than Roy Clark and Grandpa Jones playing banjo, Jr. Samples is all I remember about that damn show!

The con job is at it again confusing the simple minded to cash in on the publicity.

He is a hero? To who? Who in their right mind would call this person a hero? He made millions off of killing ducks…….DUCKS, how is that a friggin hero?

I find it a bit perplexing that the right worships and considers reality TV stars important and politically relevent

Hey Jindal is a Michael Jackson wanna be

You can see that he put a lot of thought into what he said…that looney tune a heartbeat away from the most powerful position on the planet……

Between Conservatives ongoing infatuation with fossil fuel, religious extremism, never-ending wars, and inequality in all forms, America seems to be racing backwards to a very dismal place!
