@edgarblythe,
Did he leave because it was the end of his term, or was he carried out on a stretcher?

Like his replacement got sworn in and it would have been awkward if he did not go away.

@edgarblythe,
The real story is that Senator Vitter of "prostitutes over patriots" fame did not replace him. Vitter was so divisive, his fellow republicans put a democrat in office before supporting him.

@engineer,
Yes and no. That LA survived Jindal's second term is a truly "real" story. There are a bunch of folks in LA who are breathing a giant sigh of relief that Jindal is gone.

You're right, though. Vitter is done. He failed to get the support of the LA republicans in a failed attempt to become governor, and has also decided to not seek reelection for his US Senate seat <--- which really is good news.

Are you sure you are not thinking of Marco Rubio awkwardly reaching for a glass of water during his national address?

@Blickers,
Yeah, it looks like I was conflating one painfully awkward performance with another.

Wow! Talk about staying under the radar! And, good riddance. That guy was a pestilence and embarrassment to Louisiana and the whole country.

@Setanta,
The "Discoveroids" were already taking shots at him in 2013 when he claimed that the Louisiana SCience Education Act (LSEA) was to allow the teaching of ID and Creationism side by side with "other sciences".

Heres the story(a segment of it) from way back then.

Quote:

The Discovery Institute: Bobby Jindal Doesn’t Understand “Creationism” or the Law

Ten days ago, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, in responding to a question about teaching creationism in public school classrooms, publicly confirmed The true purpose of the controversial Louisiana Science Education Act is to provide a mechanism by which public schools may teach creationism and “intelligent design” as valid science. By explicitly linking the teaching of creationism and intelligent design with the Louisiana Science Education Act, Bobby Jindal unwittingly exposed the law as facially unconstitutional and violative of the Establishment Clause.

Jindal’s remarks, not surprisingly, sent off alarms at the Discovery Institute, a creationist lobbying organization that touts the Louisiana Science Education Act as one of its signature legislative accomplishments. Indeed, the LSEA was based, in large part, off of the Discovery Institute’s “model statute.” The blog Sensuous Curmudgeon has been tracking this from the very beginning, and they cut right to the chase.

"The LSEA is the Discovery Institute’s crown jewel, so this admission by Jindal is one of the biggest public relations crises they’ve ever faced. Everyone has always known the real purpose of the LSEA (that’s why it was supported by all those Louisiana legislators who don’t know the difference between science and Voodoo), but the Discoveroids and their useful idiots have always claimed that the law is all about teaching science and it has nothing to do with creationism. Now, to the horror of the Discoveroids, Jindal has flat-out admitted that the law permits(Actually advocates for) teaching creationism.

@farmerman,
So the creationists were mad because the governor told the truth?

@edgarblythe,
There should be dancing in the streets - even outside of the French Quarter. However, that means he'll land somewhere else ... most likely in politics. Can't imagine him actually working for a living.
