Bobby Jindal is the Indian-American, 36-year-old governor of Louisiana and the only non-white Republican to hold high political office in the United States.
Some have thrown out his name as a possible vice-presidential running mate for John McCain. It won’t happen because, if for no other reason, the age difference would make John McCain look really old.
Jindal has been appointed to most of his positions by upper-echelon Republicans who taught him to obey, and he has throughout his career in Congress and, now, Governor. He has voted with George W. Bush more than 95 percent of the time and kissed up to every conservative politician who came into the state.
He was a Hindu until converting to Catholicism at 15. But it was revealed this week that he admitted to committing one of the most egregious sins in the Catholic church when he took the role of a priest in performing an exorcism.
That’s right - he performed an exorcism - on a girlfriend he once knew. He wrote about it in a magazine article.
In the Catholic church, only an ordained priest can perform an exorcism, and, even then, it takes quite a high authority to appoint a priest to that function.
Obviously, Jindal thought rather highly of himself to appoint himself to this task.
He said it worked. He claimed the demon was cast out of the girl’s body.
Furthermore, Jindal said he also cured her of cancer!
It’s too bad he can’t use some of those magical powers to keep some his campaign promises about transparency in the Louisiana governor’s office regarding ethics.
Maybe the devil made him do it.
