Southern Republican Governors | September 2, 2009

Bobby Jindal hates the stimulus. HE HATES IT!!!! He’s totally against any sort of government money for doing stuff and government related government.

2 The Advocate:

On Father’s Day this year, Gov. Bobby Jindal settled into a state helicopter with two staff members and flew to church services in Springhill.

A week later, state records show, he was in Dry Creek, again to attend church. The weekend after that it was a church in Monroe. […]

The helicopter that the governor uses the most costs $1,200 an hour to operate — about $45,000 for five months of church visits.

When Mark Sanford stabbed his wife and kids in the back (while simultaneously stabbing some South American woman with his joystick), it was okay. God was there, and he was just like, “Mark, bang away. I want you to be governor.”

Sanford’s Press Release:

It’s in the spirit of making good from bad that I am committing to you and the larger family of South Carolinians to use this experience to both trust God in his larger work of changing me, and from my end, to work to becoming a better and more effective leader.

In this regard I think all that has transpired will be particularly relevant in the way I deal with the legislative body and other state leaders going forward. Micah 6:8 asks us to do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly, and as I begin these steps into the last 18 months of this administration, it will indeed be with a more contrite and humble spirit.

Both these guys think they can be president. (I would say Sanford no longer thinks so, but he’s clearly outed himself as a mental case, so who knows?)
