Maybe instead of Candidate Tuesdays, I should do Outrage Tuesdays. To mark this new example of politicians being IDIOTS, I bring you a short scene from the Governor’s mansion.
Governor Jindal (GJ) : Bill, is my helicopter ready?
Bill: What helicopter?
GJ: You know, the state one. The one that tax-payers pay for so I can travel around the state.
Bill: Oh, that one. Yeah, it is. Where are you going on a Sunday morning?
GJ: There is this killer church up north that I want to check out for mass today.
Bill: And then what?
GJ: Oh, then I’ll come back here. If the pilot is fast enough, I should be able to make it back by kick-off.
Bill: But, sir. It is illegal to use the state helicopter for private purposes.
GJ: No it isn’t.
Bill: Yes, as a matter of fact it is. And, there is that whole issue of separation of church and state. Not just violating the law, but approaching violating the Constitution.
GJ: The what?
Bill: The Constitution. That important document…
GJ: Oh! I know what you mean. Sarah Palin sent me a copy. It’s like a magazine, with all those articles in it.
Bill: So you know what I’m talking about.
GJ: Nah, I skipped that article. Seemed boring. Ok, well I’m off. Pray for me while I’m gone. And, please make sure the chopper is available at the same time next week. I hear Jesus is actually making an appearance 500 miles away. Gotta fly.
