Before everyone gets...

...too carried away with the idea that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is some kind of "moderate" Republican, let me remind you that as recently as last September, he (my emphasis):

...and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum joined a statewide bus tour as part of a campaign aimed at ousting Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins because of his support for a April 2009 court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Iowa.

In the above video, Jindal says that the Republican Party needs to "stop looking backwards ... has to compete for every single vote ... [should] work to unite all Americans ... must reject identity politics ... [that] the first step in getting the voters to like us is to demonstrate that we like them ... it's time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults ... [and should] stop insulting the intelligence of voters."

Finally, Jindal says that the GOP needs to "stop being the stupid party."

And I couldn't agree more. So how soon will Jindal get on board?
