Hearing Jindal disparage the idea of federal funding to monitor volcanoes was quite telling. I hope the nickname given to him by Homosecular Gaytheist sticks: Bobby "Something Called 'Volcano Monitoring'" Jindal. Perhaps it will remind Americans that he represents more anti-science nonsense.
Maybe my reaction has something to do with the fact that I was living in Oregon when Mount St. Helens erupted. I vividly remember the many deaths and the destructive power. I remember the sky turning black in the middle of the day and ash falling like a heavy snow. I remember what happened to automobile engines when they suck in a sudden influx of ash.
But I would like to think that I would have been disgusted with Jindal regardless of this experience. Remember, here are some other facts about Jindal:
- He performed an exorcism on a college girlfriend.
- He wants to see creationism taught in science class and is willing to sign legislation to that effect.
- He filled an important commission with Christian extremists and anti-gay bigots.
- He claims that Catholicism is the only true form of Christianity.
