Welcome to the era of the non-stop campaign.  If the politically-oriented like myself are sick of it, just imagine how the voters feel.

This might be for '16 even.

In all likelihood, the vast majority of voters have no idea that Jindal is going to Iowa, and in fact, most probably don't even know who Jindal is.

Fast forward to November 2012: JINDAL DEFEATS OBAMA

In reference to the infamous 1948 gaffe by the Chicago Tribune. If the Republicans nominate Governor Jindal in 2012, he'll get slaughtered, no matter who badly Obama performs during his first term as President of the United States. Governor Jindal is simply unelectable on a national level and needs more time to mature as a political force.

LOL.  A Chicago street thug with no experience who associates with Marxists, radicals, and America haters just got elected.  The bar has now been set so low by Obama that anyone can now be elected president. If you give a bum sitting on a street corner a haircut and shave he can run for president, thanks to Obama.

For the sake of the country, I hope that President Obama fails.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.

This election was wide open so I understand why it started so early, but there's no reason the next can't start by the end of 2011 like previous primaries.

If republicans want a chance to win in '12, they need to nominate Jindal. But if he loses, they need to give him another shot in 2016 against a non-incumbent.

Just like how we thought the same about that Junior Senator guy from Illinois...

From what I've heard he's getting his name out but he's running for VP.  Gotta be veep in 2012 before he can aspire for 2016.

alan keyes, mike gravel, cynthia mckinney, ralph nader... such a mess.
maybe it would be better if we just had two big political parties that represent wide swaths of ideology run against each other instead of all these warring parties. if we only had to deal with two parties a winner would have already come out ahead and had a chance to stabilize the financial markets and to prepare to deal with iraq.

"Mrs. Bobby Jindal"?

I thought that terminology went out of style 50 years ago.

The bolded part is racist. I don't like throwing that word around, but please...

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I always use "Mr. and Mrs. [husband's name]" when addressing a couple.  Actually, I don't recall ever seeing it any other way.

Generally, the preferred usage is Mr. and Mrs. [last name], AFAIK. I know, it's more ambiguous.
