Megan McArdle has what I think is a fascinating take on Bobby Jindal:
You can say many things about him–he’s written some nutty things about Protestants, and participated in an exorcism, which means he’s gonna have some ‘splaining to do if he runs for President. But he is not George W. Bush, or John Kerry, or Al Gore, or any of the other range of uninspired sons of the gentry who have graced our political landscape recently. He is phenomenally smart, and phenomenally talented, and phenomenally likeable. And I’m sure that complacent Democrats dismissing him as a goober with a God complex suits his current plans just fine.
Okay, Megan. Cool stuff. Question: what do you mean “some nutty things about Protestants”? I missed that part. Exorcism I can handle, though—like you—I wonder how that’s going to play in our militantly secular media (not to mention the Kathleen Parker wing of former conservatives).
What did he say about Protestants?
