First of all, I did not watch President Obama or Gov. Jindal on Tuesday night.Â Â But the reviews of Jindal have been terrible.Â Which is too bad, cuz he is one of the smartest people I have ever known in public service.Â Â I mean super-scary smart.
So, if any one in Baton Rouge reads us, I have some FREE advice:Â HAVE JINDAL GO ON THE TONIGHT SHOW IN THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS.
Laughing at yourself is good.Â Reagan was good at it, and the Tonight Show gig did wonders for Clinton after his long and boring convention speech in 1992 (or whenever the hell that was…. my distant past).
So there you go.Â All free.Â [Full disclosure:Â I worked on a project with Jindal when he worked at HHS.Â I’ve donated to his campaigns in the past. I’m a fan.Â He wouldn’t know me if he tripped over me while walking down a long hallway.]
PS – Are you following me at Twitter?Â I’m an addict now that I’ve figured what it is all about (took me 6 months!)Â It is like crack for a blogger.Â And I’m great with keeping it under 150 characters.Â Â Oh, and there is a Twitter app for the iPhone.Â What could be more awesome for a techno-stupid writer/reader of politics??
