I know I've got at least one reader who lives in Louisana and watches Meet the Press, so I wonder if she saw Bobby Jindal's appearance on Sunday, and if so, does she agree with Steve Benen's take on it, which is that Jindal came to prominence because he was intelligent and cared about real solutions, but now he has to court the Republican base, which means he has to start parroting idiotic talking points and putting ideology over results.

I didn't see it, so I have no particular opinion, except that I find the, "Hey, why don't we try some tax cuts?" approach to be about as stupid as hiring an auto mechanic who only has one tool in his garage, and is proud of it.
