Jindal and Volcano Monitoring
It's refreshing to see that Katrina taught Bobby Jindal that if there's anything failure to monitor a pending disaster teaches us, it's that we need to be less vigilant. In his hilarious speech, you may recall, he derided government money for "something called volcano monitoring."
While to someone in Louisiana, volcanoes may sound exotic and mythical, I live in the Northwest and there are quite a few active volcanoes on this side of what Jindal may not realize is still the United States. And people live within their sometimes very wide spheres of destruction.
Maybe he thinks Mt. St. Helens was a TV miniseries.
So, as it turns out, just as we monitor for earthquakes, we have to monitor for volcanic eruptions, or else people might die unwarned. I'm sure, though, that Jindal isn't wishing death on us over here. He's just an amiable idiot happy to read talking points, and hasn't the slightest idea what he's talking about. And probably isn't very curious to know.
It's amazing how obvious the GOP's tonedeafness becomes when they don't have a way of terrifying you into submission.
Again: keep using this patsy, and Steele, and Limbaugh as your public face, GOP. We need laughs.
