the le bad republican response

as i said yesterday, i've long thought SOTU addresses were bad. and as i said last year the response by the opposition party is often even worse, bordering on pathetic. but i really am blown away by just how bad the reviews of bobby jindal's response have been.

i'm still not sure if i could have sat through the whole thing. but it sounds like jindal achieved a so-bad-it's-good level speech. maybe he can be the next buckaroo banzai! jindal's ironic fans will throw parties where they shout at the screen what exactly "volcano monitoring" means. who knows? maybe jindal's best shot for the presidency will be to assemble a coalition of members of his cult following and the christian right. he's already an exorcist. that puts him halfway there even before last night's speech.
