"Bobby" Jindal embodies the modern GOP's concept of "diversity": Non-WASPs are welcome as long as they don't talk about their non-WASP background, and even then, teabaggers won't give a shiat about them.

Democrats: Come as you are.
Republicans: Come as we are. Better yet, don't come at all.

When Democrats saw a man called Barack Hussein Obama and went "Okay, we'll give him a chance." When Republicans saw Obama, they went batshiat crazy.

Even Obama went by "Barry" in his college years (which is widely mocked by Republicans), so even though he did end up using his birth name for his political life, he anglicized his name for many years, probably out of a similar need to fit in.  Nothing uncommon about that.

So, I'll give ole' Bobby a free pass for not going by his Indian name.

What I do find absolutely farking hilarious is that portrait of his where his skin is several shades lighter.  Motherfarker, we know what you look like, and that ain't it.  That's fair game.  Rip him for that.

Holy farkballs. Finally, he's going to come back to Louisiana and actually govern!

No, wait. The opposite of that.

(We're set to decide the next governor on Saturday, and Jindal is still running around on a perpetual campaign/book tour, as he has been for the past three years. That farker has less than three months left "in office" and yet we won't see him but maybe for some sort of War on Christmas crap in the middle of December for a single day. That piece of shiat is so bad I'm packing my stuff up because if David "Diaper shiatter" Vitter is elected Saturday, I'm moving. I will farking walk to a better state than Louisiana if I have to.)

I come not to mock Piyush for being of Asian descent, but for being a moron, which really goes against stereotypes if you think about it.


That's what lost him my support: He isn't a moron. He got his bachelor's degree with a dual major (biology and public policy). He was accepted to both Harvard Medical School and Yale Law School, but he decided to go to Oxford instead. He was a Rhodes scholar, for the love of all that's holy. This is not a stupid man.

And yet, in order to pander to his supporters, he has pretended to be stupid. He has said, not the things that an educated man would say to an intelligent electorate, but the things that a herp-a-derp populist would say to a bunch of rednecks.

He wants to be president. He wants to be president a lot. So much that he has abandoned his job as governor of Louisiana to campaign. So much that he has abandoned his intellectual integrity to pander. So much that he has, arguably, abandoned his ethnic identity to pose as somebody acceptable to the people who would vote for Bobby but wouldn't vote for Piyush. I don't expect a candidate who doesn't want to be president, of course, but some of them at least make a show of reluctance. Mr. Jindal wants to be president so badly that he has abandoned everything that he was and that he is to run. And that, right there, is why I don't want to see Mr. Jindal as president.

Exactly. It's not about Jindal himself, whether you call him Piyush or Bobby or Rumpelstiltskin. It's about the hypocrisy of the people who insist on referring to a politician of the opposing party by his middle name because it sounds "scary" but use an adopted name for a politician of their own party because it sounds "American." I've got a lot of things against Jindal, not least among them that he's a smart guy who's been pretending to be stupid to pander to who he thinks his supporters are, but when I talked about the name thing, it was the conservatives online, not Jindal, that I was criticizing.

And the food puns ... c'mon, this is Fark. We make puns. We talk about food. So of course there are food puns. I'm sure if Ted Cruz drops out, it's gonna be the taco the thread, too. Mr. Jindal is of an ethnicity which has a popular and widely-recognized cuisine and in which, because the phonemes of many of the Indian languages are similar to those of English, lends itself well to punnery.

Moothemagiccow, you're sounding like those college students who want "safe spaces" and rant about "micro-aggressions" and whatnot. I do not mean this in any possible positive way.

dopirt: Didn't God/Jesus tell him to run?

How does that work, was he just sitting there, in the governor's mansion, when the words "Bobby Brady Jindal. you must run for President" echoed throughout? Did he has* a conversation, maybe discussed strategy, salary, civil engineering, and the like; or was he left trying to comprehend what He has said?

While I'm asking questions, when an ethereal host is talking to you, how do you tell if it's God or Jesus. Do they introduce themselves? It is assumed that God has this deep booming voice, and Jesus has this mellow James Taylor voice. But what if that's all wrong? What if God's voice is high and squeaky like Mike Tyson, and Jesus has a deep voice like Barry White? What if Bobby got it wrong and condemned himself nation-wide humiliation.  I guess it's better then an old-timey smiting.

*has - Ecclesiastical perfect tense of have.


Which Jesus: Real Jesus or Republican Jesus?

I find it interesting that the Republicans made a big deal of referring to Barack Obama as "Hussein" and saying "well, that's his name, right?" yet they refer to Piyush Jindal as "Bobby" which is no part of his name.

So, is the name on his birth certificate the one you use even though it isn't the one he goes by? Or is the one he goes by the one you use even though it isn't the one on his birth certificate? Does it matter what party you are -- or what party he is?

That was then, this is now.

Barry Obama goes by Barack Obama now. Bobby Jindal does not go by Piyush "Bobby" Jindal now. See the difference? Gov. Jindal can call himself whatever he wants, but it's fair game now.

That said, it's a stupid game to play. IMO, we should not lower ourselves to that level. We can rip Gov. Jindal for the things he does and says, as well as for his economic and foreign policy ideas. That's more than enough!

Kasich came out in favor of a new government agency to push 'judeo christian values' around the world, basically shredding the first amendment.  Any hope he had of looking moderate died today.

Worldwalker: I find it interesting that the Republicans made a big deal of referring to Barack Obama as "Hussein" and saying "well, that's his name, right?" yet they refer to Piyush Jindal as "Bobby" which is no part of his name.

So, is the name on his birth certificate the one you use even though it isn't the one he goes by? Or is the one he goes by the one you use even though it isn't the one on his birth certificate? Does it matter what party you are -- or what party he is?

I'm astonished at the open racism in this thread. There are too many Indian "jokes" to even list, and I'll bet most of the subbies thought they were being wildly funny and not at all racist. Think again.

Indian-Americans are pissing off white folks by working harder at school and taking college places the white folks thought they owned.  Get used to it. They really are smarter than you, and they and their parents made huge sacrifices to get their kids an education. Isn't that the American dream?

There are a lot of things you can say against Bobby Jindal, but the fact that he westernized his first name is not one of them. Quit with the Pijush jokes.  A child cannot choose his name. He was by all accounts a lousy governor and had no chance of making it in the primaries. Joke about that, if you will. But this flood of racism is something I did not expect here.

ElizaDoolittle: Darth_Lukecash: Zerochance: This always comes up in every Jindal thread.

I'm a naturalized immigrant, and like Jindal, I was raised in the deep South.  I anglicized my name because I thought it would make life a little easier for myself, which twenty years ago, was very much the case.  I am very proud of my heritage, but when you're a Latino kid in the deep south, you have to be pragmatic, and going by an American name (which is actually a direct English translation of my Spanish name) definitely helped me break down barriers.  I firmly believe that and I don't hold it against Jindal for doing the same.  My siblings all did it, as did many of my cousins and other Hispanic acquaintances.  It's very common within first and second-generation Hispanic immigrants, actually.

Even Obama went by "Barry" in his college years (which is widely mocked by Republicans), so even though he did end up using his birth name for his political life, he anglicized his name for many years, probably out of a similar need to fit in.  Nothing uncommon about that.

So, I'll give ole' Bobby a free pass for not going by his Indian name.

What I do find absolutely farking hilarious is that portrait of his where his skin is several shades lighter.  Motherfarker, we know what you look like, and that ain't it.  That's fair game.  Rip him for that.

In all fairness, he never commissioned that picture. It was a gift from a supporter. It wasn't his official portrait.

I think, in all fairness, that should have been mentioned earlier in the thread.  Shame on the supporter.


Before you two break your arms patting yourself on the back you do know that that painting hangs in his office right?

qorkfiend: BSABSVR: Don't worry evangelicals, smart very serious candidate John Kasich has promoted the idea of fighting Isis by creating a government department of spreading the gospel of Jesus.

What? He didn't say that.


Yeah, he did. He wants to spread "Judaeo-Christian values" to the Middle East, Iran (which has apparently been relocated out of the Middle East), Russia, and China.

What I find particularly bizarre is, when he was asked about American Muslims and atheists, said that they would be useful to this project. I really want to know why he expects to get help promoting his religion from people who adhere to a different religion or no religion at all. Is he honestly that dense?

Y'know, if he talked about "American values" he might have a remote chance of it working. But couching it in religious terms will just make it ridiculous to Russians (the majority of whom are in fact Christians), greeted with hostility by all flavors of Muslims (who, y'know, are not exactly open to the idea of adopting either Judaism or Christianity), and not going to go over very big in China, either, given that it's officially atheist.

Of course, this is all done to appeal to who he thinks his base is, and who he is hoping will turn out for the primaries while the sane people stay at home (note: VOTE IN YOUR STATE PRIMARY, IT'S IMPORTANT). But if he should somehow get in a position to pull this off, it would give our enemies more reasons to hate us, our allies cause to think we're demented, and anyone still neutral a reason to join the other side. This is not a win.

This is the south, the land where "mild" chili will dissolve your spoon. Last time I went to an Indian restaurant I drank five glasses of water. Big ones.

Are you guys just incredibly stupid or something?  It's pretty common knowledge at this point that capcaisin is an oil and water just makes food more spicy.  Spicy food + 5 glasses of water is much more spicy than just spicy food.  

I'm not trying to be a dick, but this is honestly everyone should know at this point.  Why would you order food that is beyond  your capabilities, order a drink that is known to make it worse for your delicate sensibilities, and then biatch about it?   Just eat your deep-fried chicken steeped in butter and a cup of buttermilk and stay out of this conversation.


I know what capsaicin is (and I can even spell it). No, adding water does not make food "more spicy" -- it's just that water is not all that useful for washing away the capsaicin because, being an oil and all, it's not soluble in water. So it's not all that good at making it less spicy. But if you apply enough water it will help. Hence the 5 glasses of water. I would have preferred something like iced tea (tannins ftw) but, again, this being the south, all they've got is sweet tea and that stuff is tea-flavored pancake syrup, not something you want to drink.

Why would I order food "beyond my capabilities"? Because I like it. It tastes good. There's the issue of eyebrow ignition, but I'll deal, because I like the stuff. And I'm not biatching about anything -- I just mentioned it in passing because of the mention of Indian restaurants, and mostly because the discussion of naan made me think of that place.

Also, I don't eat deep-fried anything. Not steeped in butter or otherwise. I leave that for the people who were born here. They're the ones who drink sweet tea, too, and think okra is a food. (and let's not even get into boiled peanuts)

P.S. Any time someone says "I'm not trying to be XYZ" it's pretty much guaranteed that what's coming up is going to be full-on XYZ. Just sayin'.

Yes, I understand all that.  You're the one who said that you couldn't handle spicy food "even after drinking a lot of water".  If you already understand it and can even verbalize why it's a bad idea, why did you do it?  I have to reiterate, are you guys just incredibly stupid?


No you didn't and don't try and play it off like you did. He schooled you and your "common knowledge" that "everyone knows water makes it more spicy."

It doesn't and you can't play the "yeah I know that" card and double down with name calling. For a guy who isn't trying to be a dick you sure are coming off like one.

Let me chime in here a moment: Of course it does not break down the oil. But it does physically remove it from your mouth, if you use enough of it, which is better than nothing. And yes, it does help. I was there, remember? It helped. Not as much as other things would have, but more than any other available alternative, so I used what I had. It kept the burning down to the point where my eyebrows were merely smoldering a bit, and I could enjoy my dinner.

And why on earth have you made such an issue of this, including calling people names? Seriously, I mentioned in passing that the food at my favorite Indian restaurant was really hot, and you've made a federal case of it.

How does that work, was he just sitting there, in the governor's mansion, when the words "Bobby Brady Jindal. you must run for President" echoed throughout? Did he has* a conversation, maybe discussed strategy, salary, civil engineering, and the like; or was he left trying to comprehend what He has said?

While I'm asking questions, when an ethereal host is talking to you, how do you tell if it's God or Jesus. Do they introduce themselves? It is assumed that God has this deep booming voice, and Jesus has this mellow James Taylor voice. But what if that's all wrong? What if God's voice is high and squeaky like Mike Tyson, and Jesus has a deep voice like Barry White? What if Bobby got it wrong and condemned himself nation-wide humiliation.  I guess it's better then an old-timey smiting.

CanisNoir: dopirt: How does that work, was he just sitting there, in the governor's mansion, when the words "Bobby Brady Jindal. you must run for President" echoed throughout? Did he has* a conversation, maybe discussed strategy, salary, civil engineering, and the like; or was he left trying to comprehend what He has said?

Going to try to attempt to give you a serious answer. When people speak of thier Deity "Telling them" to do something, they are generally *not* talking about hearing a voice in thier head, but rather being told through the subtle nudges of inspiration and coincodence. Basically in Jindals mind, it could have been the number of people closely around him saying "dude, you should totes run, the GOP needs someone with your exact qualifications and the evangelicals will never go for Cruz" and getting bombarded with that message lead him to believe that God was "telling him to run".

While I'm asking questions, when an ethereal host is talking to you, how do you tell if it's God or Jesus. Do they introduce themselves? It is assumed that God has this deep booming voice, and Jesus has this mellow James Taylor voice. But what if that's all wrong? What if God's voice is high and squeaky like Mike Tyson, and Jesus has a deep voice like Barry White? What if Bobby got it wrong and condemned himself nation-wide humiliation. I guess it's better then an old-timey smiting.

Most of the Christians who say shait like that are of the flavor that believe that Jesus and God are one in the same. As for how the voice sounds, see my above.


I'm not inclined to trust a discussion of how certain Christians might think from someone who has apparently never heard of the Trinity. Dude, I've been an atheist for 40 years, and even I know that in Christian thought Jesus and God the Father (and the Holy Spirit too, for that matter) are one and the same while also separate and individual. That's the mystery of the Trinity, and a bedrock tenet of the faith.

Zerochance: This always comes up in every Jindal thread.

I'm a naturalized immigrant, and like Jindal, I was raised in the deep South.  I anglicized my name because I thought it would make life a little easier for myself, which twenty years ago, was very much the case.  I am very proud of my heritage, but when you're a Latino kid in the deep south, you have to be pragmatic, and going by an American name (which is actually a direct English translation of my Spanish name) definitely helped me break down barriers.  I firmly believe that and I don't hold it against Jindal for doing the same.  My siblings all did it, as did many of my cousins and other Hispanic acquaintances.  It's very common within first and second-generation Hispanic immigrants, actually.

Even Obama went by "Barry" in his college years (which is widely mocked by Republicans), so even though he did end up using his birth name for his political life, he anglicized his name for many years, probably out of a similar need to fit in.  Nothing uncommon about that.

So, I'll give ole' Bobby a free pass for not going by his Indian name.

What I do find absolutely farking hilarious is that portrait of his where his skin is several shades lighter.  Motherfarker, we know what you look like, and that ain't it.  That's fair game.  Rip him for that.


Sorry, born in Houma, Louisiana, lived there til I was 12, moved to New Orleans, college in Thibodaux, with a Colombian father, who went to the same college as I did in the 60s right off the boat from Colombia, neither of us had a problem.  Bobby changed his name and religeon to suck politics dick.  Funny how I never had any problems fitting in.

ElizaDoolittle: I'm astonished at the open racism in this thread. There are too many Indian "jokes" to even list, and I'll bet most of the subbies thought they were being wildly funny and not at all racist. Think again.

Indian-Americans are pissing off white folks by working harder at school and taking college places the white folks thought they owned.  Get used to it. They really are smarter than you, and they and their parents made huge sacrifices to get their kids an education. Isn't that the American dream?

There are a lot of things you can say against Bobby Jindal, but the fact that he westernized his first name is not one of them. Quit with the Pijush jokes.  A child cannot choose his name. He was by all accounts a lousy governor and had no chance of making it in the primaries. Joke about that, if you will. But this flood of racism is something I did not expect here.

This is the south, the land where "mild" chili will dissolve your spoon. Last time I went to an Indian restaurant I drank five glasses of water. Big ones.

Are you guys just incredibly stupid or something?  It's pretty common knowledge at this point that capcaisin is an oil and water just makes food more spicy.  Spicy food + 5 glasses of water is much more spicy than just spicy food.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but this is honestly everyone should know at this point.  Why would you order food that is beyond  your capabilities, order a drink that is known to make it worse for your delicate sensibilities, and then biatch about it?   Just eat your deep-fried chicken steeped in butter and a cup of buttermilk and stay out of this conversation.


I know what capsaicin is (and I can even spell it). No, adding water does not make food "more spicy" -- it's just that water is not all that useful for washing away the capsaicin because, being an oil and all, it's not soluble in water. So it's not all that good at making it less spicy

He basically denies his background, so it is absolutely okay to make fun of that, and that is all we are doing.


I can't even with this shiat. Step back and think about what you're doing. You are not attacking a person. You are attacking an ethnicity and a skin color. The fact that you can justify it to yourself does not mean it is ok. The fact that Jindal is not Apu, and that makes it ok to attack him is ridiculous. This is like saying Obama is not enough like Uncle Remus, so all the racism against him is totally acceptable.

The double standard on racism against indian and asian americans is insane doublethink.

moothemagiccow: BSABSVR: This thread just got weird.

Really? It was unexpected that this turned into an argument about spicy food?
"Restaurant worker," "do the needful IT guy" and "convenience store clerk" are the only acceptable roles for Indians according to FARK totally-not-racist progressives


What does a discussion of the best way to counteract excessive capsaicin have to do with what anyone thinks is an acceptable job for Indians, whether they're politicians or otherwise?

Naan got mentioned. This resulted in several people (me included) craving it, which led to a mention of restaurants that serve it, and that segued into the whole rather strange capsaicin thing, none of which (except for the original pun about Mr. Jindal's campaign being a naan-starter) had anything to do with any person at all, of any ethnicity, just about bread.

With regard to Mr. Jindal: I haven't seen anyone in this thread arguing that he shouldn't be president because his parents are Indian. (if he was Indian, he couldn't be president, but he's American) Actually, aside from a couple of people who said he was a terrible governor, I think I'm the only one who's really said much of anything about him as a politician at all; scroll up and you can read the whole thing. The reason Mr. Jindal shouldn't be president is that he's pandering to who he thinks the voters are, which they aren't anyway (which has a lot to do with why his poll numbers are what they are). That's the kind of person who shouldn't be president, and he shouldn't be president if he was born 30 seconds after his parents arrived from another country or if his ancestors greeted the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock.

Chill out. Nobody's attacking him for his ethnicity. They're criticizing the people who hold double standards for "their" versus "our" candidates, and any criticism of Jindal is about him trying to cater to that group of people.

Worldwalker: That's what lost him my support: He isn't a moron. He got his bachelor's degree with a dual major (biology and public policy). He was accepted to both Harvard Medical School and Yale Law School, but he decided to go to Oxford instead. He was a Rhodes scholar, for the love of all that's holy. This is not a stupid man.


Rebuttal:

1. Being accepted to any university does not mean one is necessarily possessed of high intelligence, and in fact it usually just means that you're good at studying (which is entirely different from being naturally smart), have lots of money, and know the right people. I've met plenty of people who have advanced degrees and yet it's glaringly obvious that they're actually morons every time they are presented with a problem or even just open their mouth to speak.  I've known doctors, educators, and even scientists who couldn't think their way out of a tough spot or adapt to new information, and I've known high school drop-outs who could out-think these degree-holders time and time again. So spare me the whole "he holds degrees, he MUST be smart!" line, because it's absolute horseshiat.

2. Albert Einstein had no degree. He did get a teaching diploma from a 4-year career school.

3. Nicola Tesla dropped out of college and never got a degree.

4. John D. Rockefeller was a high school drop-out. No degree. No diploma, even.

5. Richard Branson never attended college and barely graduated high school.

6. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard. He was by most accounts a lousy student.

7. Woody Allen was kicked out of NYU. (you may argue about his ethics, but his intelligence is not debatable by most accounts)

8. Meanwhile, George W. Bush has a Masters degree (from Harvard!)

9. ...And Sarah Palin has a Bachelors degree.


I rest my case.

So... I am not paying much attention to the whole Presidential election because, frankly, I think we're screwed either way and the whole thing is kind of a sham, anyway, but I have to ask:

Do the Republicans have anybody  running who isn't a complete and total joke?

Seriously, everyone I see on the lists of GOP candidates is, and I'm (not really) quoting here, "100% a dick".

I mean, Jindal is a joke in his own party. Cruz is a joke in both parties. Trump is joke without a punchline.

And... I'm sorry, but this just doesn't make sense to me: The guy from the crappy reality show is the frontrunner?!?!

Tell me these candidates are all just pre-show entertainment, and the GOP's real  candidate will come out after all the clowns are done performing. This can't be the best the Republicans can do.

I'm not saying one of them couldn't win the Presidency. I'm saying that if they do-- ANY of them-- It will be a massive cock-up. It will be a pathetic joke. None of them is worth a good goddamn as a politician, as a leader, or as a thinker. They're farking clown testicles, all sad and multi-colored, but too gross and tragic to be funny.

The Democrats aren't much better, but at least Hillary Clinton has some gravitas and a working brain. Oh, and BALLS. Hillary Clinton has bigger balls than any three of the GOP candidates combined.

I'll be watching the election from afar, wondering if I should consider a move to another nation should Trump become our joke-in-chief. I honestly can't believe people are seriously considering voting for that chuckledick. Come on, people!!! WHAT THE FARK ARE YOU THINKING?!
