Background: in the hope of reminding people of their existence, the Louisiana Democratic party fake-endorsed Bobby Jindal for VP, in the hopes that this will get him out of Louisiana. Lord knows that the Democrats haven’t been successful any other way – and, hey! I guess that this means that the LA Democratic party is conceding that Obama will lose in November.
Anyway, Jindal advisor Timmy Teepell came up with the thought that immediately came to my mind:
I’m glad to hear there’s still a Democratic Party in Louisiana…
Actually, the full paragraph is just as good:
Timmy Teepell, Jindal’s political consultant, replied, “I’m glad to hear there’s still a Democratic Party in Louisiana and Obama still has confidence in them. After they failed to recruit even a single serious candidate in any of the statewide elections, I had assumed they packed up and left town.”
It really is a relief for me to hear from the LA Democratic party, by the way. The system of government that we’ve designed for the Republic assumes two viable parties. In areas where we don’t actually have them, things can get messy.
