For a night cap, I present the next leader of the Republican Party:
Tag Archives: Bobby Jindal
A couple of days ago I happened to catch Harold Ford Jr. and Tom DeLay on Hardball discussing President Obama’s un-SOTU and Governor Bobby Jindal’s response. I expected the discourse to be a bit nasty with the likes of Chris Matthews (Obama Fan Club Treasurer) and The Hammer on the same show, but what I was not ready for was the sheer absurdity that was Tom DeLay. I admit that I thought a lot of what he had to say was a bit nutso and meant simply to garner attention, but the manner in which The Hammer addressed Harold Ford Jr. and Chris Matthews was, as we say in North Carolina, CRAZY, bless his heart. I was sort of expecting DeLay to start referring to the ever-eloquent Harold Ford Jr. as “boy.” Yikes.
So for your viewing pleasure:
Tom Bevan over at RealClearPolitics reports:
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll conducted on February 18-19 among 429 Republicans shows Sarah Palin with a slight edge over Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney as the preferred GOP nominee for 2012:
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin 29%
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee 26%
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney 21%
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal 9%
Someone else 10%
None/no one 4%
No opinion 2%
Republican men split more or less evenly among the top three choices, but Palin has a double digit lead among GOP women, winning 32% to Huckabee’s 22% and 20% for Romney.
Let’s get in the time machine and take a little trip back, back, back:
PALIN/UNMONITORED VOLCANO 2012!
