Who Dat Man!!??
At boy t'ink ju's lahk me, t'rough an' t'rough!

I remember watching the 2004 Democratic Convention, and the big buzz of the day was this charismatic speaker from the Illinois Senate that just simply sent tingles up the legs of every Left-Wing whackado on planet earth. And as we all know, that certain charismatic speaker from the Illinois Senate was one Barack Hussein Obama.

So is it too early for me to get fired-up over someone in 2012? Why not? Especially in light that the GOP just got their asses handed to them on every level... and I mean handed to 'em on Biblical proportions. Literally and figuratively, we just got our butts whipped by the jawbone of an Ass.

Anyhow, here are a few stats that I'd like you to take a gander at and see if these opinions match yours. I know damn good and well they don't jive with much that the now bleeding profusely "moderates" in the Republican Party espouse.

I swear --- 99% of what I just read, I agree with --- STRONGLY!

So who is this Populist Reagan-Republican that has already been identified in the national media as one of the "rising stars" in the GOP? Hey... I've posted about him before. So those of you who frequent The Lair already know who I'm talking about.

And besides... he's a good Catholic boy!

Ladies and gents, Governor Piyush "Bobby" Jindal (R-LA)

contrary to the cnnabccbsmsnbc crowd I was rooting for Jindal from the get go, however I now believe a Palin-Jindal or Jindal-Palin ticket would be the way to go, lets see the msn pull a racist, sexist line on that one, time to burn the heretics and RINOs and get down to the basics

I've been watching him for some time. I think the Right might just have found their Knight to carry the sword against the DNC.

Now if we can just get rid of the neo-con McCain types from the Republican Party and return her back to the era of Reagan and Teddy....then we might just have a chance in 2012.

Thank you, Kevin, I am going to keep this guy on my radar, to be sure and I want more people to hear about him.

Palin/Jindal 2012.

'Course, one more thing these two folks have in common - with her coming from Alaska and him coming from Louisiana, ain't NUTHIN' they wouldn't consider eating!

I love Sarah Palin, but I'll be amazed if she puts her family thru that torture again.

Hot Diggity! We sure could use another Southern Govenor. They seem so darn likeable.

Let's make it an even two:

I was listening to Jindal on talk radio Friday & the more I hear, the more I like.

Having just become governor of Louisiana, this was not his year to run. But, if he does as good a job governing as I think he will, look out. I think he will make a formidible candidate as well as a great president.

Let's see how the PC left takes him on. They showed the emptiness of radical feminism with how the treated Palin. No lets see the truth of how non-racist they really are.

Palin and Jindal would be an unbalanced ticket, to be sure, but it worked for Clinton/Gore.

ANY Republican candidate for President can expect the sort of treatment that Gov. Palin received this last election cycle. I am not the only one who seems to think that she, and her family, have the will and the fortitude to withstand another presidential election: see this Eugene Robinson column.

And he's only 39 years old (or 37... I hear conflicting accounts). He's got a full 30 years of political life ahead of him. Even if he's not on the ticket in 2012, he could easily attempt to run in any number of elections from 2012 through to 2036. (although a Palin/Jindal or Jindal/Palin match-up in 2012 is my dream team... with she having the VP run experience plus a potential six years as AK gov., and him with a potential five years as LA gov.)

Keep an eye out also for the new CA Rep. Tom McClintock, current IN Rep. Mike Pence and GOPAC head Michael Steele.
