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.

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.

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.

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.

God also told several other candidates to run for president. Apparently God has more of a sense of humor than is indicated by His actions in the Bible.

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.


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!

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.

They're both polling low, have few endorsements, have bigger candidates cannibalizing their constituencies, and have a penchant for occasionally saying something cogent which also indicates a certain level of self-awareness and critical self-reflection.

Kasich still has a path to the nomination- he's polling far ahead of his national numbers in New Hampshire. A decent showing there, and he picks up steam really fast in the establishment lane, especially if Jeb does poorly in Iowa and New Hampshire (which he likely will). That leaves Kasich, Rubio, and Christie as the only three plausible candidates in a general. Christie is banking on the same strategy, but Kasich is running better than he is in NH, last I saw.

It's also in Kasich's (and Christie's) best interest to stay in as long as he can in order to keep a reasonably high profile as a guy who's going to be on any VP shortlist just by virtue of his current job- a popular governor of Ohio is going to be really hard not to put on a ticket.

Graham doesn't have a path, but he's running a campaign on the platform of "I hate these isolationist nutjobs trying to take over my party and I'm going to use the platform of a Presidential race to try and rebut them as much as I can." He doesn't care about the path to the nomination, he knows he doesn't have one. He just wants to get his message out, so he'll run as long as he has enough money to keep going.


Graham's path is that of a very loooooong war boner 24/7.  He should probably consult a doctor.  Seriously, every question asked at the kiddie table debate was answered with WAR HERP WAR WAR DERP.  I can't honestly imagine what the next debate will be like with him.  Not sure how he can amp up from previous performance, but I'm sure it will be comical to watch.  Someone with better video editing skills and motivation than me should make an hilarious youtube video.  The view potential is YUGE!

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.

Worldwalker: MFAWG: You know Barry Husssein Obama never did? Try to perform an exorcism.

You know what else he never did? Literally shovel sand against the ocean.

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.


I blame his change as being recruited by the Foreign Office while at Oxford. Classic spy technique is to become a civil servant and work your way up into the elite command structure. Once there start feeding info to your Control.

I'm not saying it is the British, but it is British Petroleum.

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'.
