Having read the whole speech, I don't think Jindal is advocating abandoning Washington. What it appears he's advocating is a message favoring a "download" of power out of DC and to the states - whether by use of block grants, elimination of programs, cutting bureaucracies and so forth.

It's a familiar small-government message, but what it focuses on is making government more local and accountable and eliminating the impact of what everybody knows is a corrupt system in DC.

Jindal doesn't mention either, but if you're familiar with the theory put forth by James Piereson at AEI about how we're on the verge of a fundamental shift in the model of American government or by some of the things Bill Whittle has been saying at PJTV about how we have an industrial-age government for an information-age society and that's unsustainable you can see the influences in that thinking on this speech.

Or perhaps a counterattack. If these clowns are going to publish the location of where they assemble, then the solution is to go there and rout them out where they are.

Let's all thank the parents of these punks for doing such a bang-up job of raising self-reliant young adults.

On how many different levels does Obama's asinine analogy fail?

How about all of them?

If that's not the worst show on TV I don't know what is.

I admire Andrew's willingness to enter the lion's den, but it almost comes off as a lack of standards to go on the tube with Maher and his lefty friends.

And now I know why McCain's campaign was so awful in 2008 seeing McKinnon. He's a shockingly dim bulb.

It's so bad as to call into question why the Republicans are bothering to attempt negotiations with Obama. Shut the government down and force him to join the world of reality.

Well, perhaps Joshua doesn't get out much.
