Piyush "Bobby" Jindal betrays the GOP

What? When you think that David Duke won 55% of the white vote for governor in a general election just a few years ago in Louisiana, you have to think the governor has overstepped his bounds. He may need to do another exorcism if he wants to remain viable.

In an interview with CNN, Humphrey said she called Bardwell on October 6 to ask about getting a marriage license, and was asked by Bardwell's wife whether it would be an interracial marriage. Humphrey said she was told that Bardwell will not sign off on interracial marriages.

There have been calls for Judge Keith Bardwell to resign but so far, he has shown no inclination to do so. The local NAACP chapter has forwarded the case to the state and national levels of the civil rights group. [...]

Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal issued a statement saying the nine-member Louisiana Judiciary Commission that reviews lawyers and judges in the state should investigate. Jindal added, "Disciplinary action should be taken immediately, including the revoking of his license."

Whoring Christianist David "Diapers" Vitter knows better than to betray the Republican base so close to a primary.

U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said in a statement Bardwell's practices and comments were deeply disturbing. "Not only does his decision directly contradict Supreme Court rulings, it is an example of the ugly bigotry that divided our country for too long."

The other Louisiana U.S. Senator David Vitter, R-La. who is running for re-election has chosen not to issue a statement."

Jindal will need to clarify his position if he wants to remain viable in the Southern party. I'll venture a suggestion for his next speech: "My friends, in America, white people ought to be able to marry whomever they want to."
