Bobby Jindal: Catholic Governor

In his omniscience, he's figured out how to solve the Republican Party's "problem" with birth control. Basically, make it more available than it is now.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, has a solution for the GOP's birth control problem: Make it over the counter.

"The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists announced its support last month for selling oral contraceptives over the counter without a prescription in the United States," Jindal writes in Friday's Wall Street Journal opinion section. "I agree with this opinion, which if embraced by the federal government would take contraception out of the political arena." Jindal also writes that prescription birth control drives up costs with unnecessary doctors' visits.

"Democrats have wrongly accused Republicans of being against birth control and against allowing people to use it. That's hogwash," Jindal wrote. "But Republicans do want to protect those who have religious beliefs that are opposed to contraception."

How wonderful. In the interest of political expediency, let's make immorality and sin easier. Our nation isn't destroying itself fast enough, so somebody needs to floor the accelerator.

I hope everyone takes note of this. We're about to see both parties drop the sham of being different and complete their merger to the same sides of the same coin. I hope that the bishops in Louisiana speak up about this.

No Communion, bye-bye Bobby. Not that that'll happen.

Gays win, so they say 'take government out of marriage and it won't be an issue...' Yeah, because pretending it doesn't exist magically makes it vanish and restores sexual sanity to America.

Pro-illegal forces win, they say 'pathway to citizenship (i.e. amnesty). Pro- abortionists win, they say 'don't talk about it anymore!' On and on.

I love these guys who think they're gonna get all the reddit kiddies, gays, feminists, soon-to-not-be-illegals and whatever else by becoming conservative Democrats.

It didn't work for Ford, Poppa Bush, Dole, McCain, or Romney, and barely worked for Baby Bush (more Ralph Nader and doofus Kerry's doing than anything) but for some reason they think it will now.

All the talking heads and pundits are pushing for this though. 'We need to become libertarians nyah nyah.' Screw that!

The parties in this country are like Britain's- you have a milquetoast liberal party and an outright radical socialist party. At what point do people finally concede that neither is worth a Catholic's vote? We've been doing this 'well, he sucks a little less, so God must want him' crap for decades, and it's only gotten us pushed further into the margins. And now we're really hosed.
