Sorry Bobby Jindal, but judging from the comments posted by Republicans on this thread and others you all are stuck with stupid.

Louisiana Gov. Jindal calls on GOP to 'recalibrate' at RNC's winter meeting
"We've got to stop being the stupid party. It's time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults," he said. "We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. I'm here to say we've had enough of that."
Republicans presidential nominee Mitt Romney struggled last fall to win over women and minorities, who overwhelmingly favored President Barack Obama's re-election bid. GOP officials conceded this week that they must change their tone and message, if not their policies, if they hope to expand their appeal in the coming years.
Romney alienated many Hispanic voters by highlighting his support for a fence along the Mexican border and "self-deportation" of illegal immigrants. Down-ticket Republican candidates alienated female voters by backing new abortion laws in a handful of swing states like Virginia and New Hampshire, while Senate candidate Todd Akin of Missouri hurt himself and his party by declaring that women's bodies could prevent pregnancy in cases of "legitimate rape."
GOP strategist Ari Fleischer suggested that his party could learn an important lesson from Democrats on messaging: "Republicans talk policy and Democrats talk people. Republicans can learn a little bit from Democrats on how to make those people connections with our policies."
Asked whether he was considering a presidential bid in 2016, Jindal brushed aside the question. "Any Republican that's thinking about talking about running for president in 2016 needs to get his head examined," he said. "We've got a lot of work to do."
One of the party's most popular voices, Christie earlier in the month criticized his party's `'toxic internal politics" after House Republicans initially declined to approve disaster relief for victims of Superstorm Sandy. He said it was `'disgusting to watch" their actions and he faulted the GOP's most powerful elected official, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., told reporters on the sidelines of the meeting Thursday that Republicans also need to develop a sound strategy for confronting the Obama administration, suggesting House Republicans could use hearings to expose waste and promote better ideas.
"A lot of Republicans, frankly, spent the last two years saying,`Oh, gee, we don't have to do much because after Obama loses we'll work with the new Republican president.' Well, that world ain't there," Gingrich said. "So now they have to make adjustments. They've got to understand that this is a different game."

Homer has been saying this for years time to confront the retards in the party, you know the party base.
Real conservatives need to take back the party and I believe they have some good ideas.

Is he the one just got busted for taking kickbacks and bribes from Katrina funds?

Oh wait, nope, that was Nagel (or something like that)

Better idea-Disaster relief funding-to the PEOPLE, NOT the robbinghoodieTic pockets of corruption!

Maybe, maybe not Homer. Personally, I'm a little worried about her health, and the affects it may already be having on her judgement and capabilities in seeing and reading, stuff like that.

Semi truck pile up in this neck of the woods this am. This kinda weather bites, like trying to look into crystal balls and pretending they're worth the glass they're molder out of, for anything other than paperweights.

She'll be 69, Reagan was 69 when he took office. But yes, her health could be a concern.

If the Tea Party is so great then why in ALL the polls done are they below a 20% approval rating? The die hard Tea Party is the American Taliban. They are against free elections and against majority rule.

Dunno, I thought Bobby lost some of his influence when he gave a terrible rebuttal to Obama's state of the union speech a few years ago. But I suppose he is still respected in the party so ya never know.

Can Republicans Change Their Spots?

"Strong majorities of voters view the Republican Party’s positions on critical economic and social issues as extreme."

"The hardest thing for a party to do is to make painful choices that require a break-up within the old coalition in order to create a new, more competitive coalition. Usually, only repeated losses —being hit over the head with a two-by-four — will motivate a party to try something truly different."

"If the conservative movement continues on its downward trajectory, the American business community, which has the most to lose from Republican failure, will be the key force arguing for moderation."

Jindal: GOP ‘Must Not Become The Party Of Austerity’

"We must become the party of growth. Of course we know that government is out of control. The public knows that too. And yet we just lost an election."

Jindal added: "If this election taught us anything, it is that we will not win elections by simply pointing out the failures of the other side. We must boldly paint the picture of what America can be, of just how incredibly bright America's future can be."

Good morning old Geezer! How is our mental state today?
Hehe..
You really need to let this Waxturd thing go as it's obviously an extreme obsession for you.
It's seems to me you like to exaggerate quite a bit with your grandiose claim that you have exposed fraud. WTF you blabbering about senile old codge? Do you think you are Jack Bauer?
Stop being a drama queen little baby and ou really should stop whining about your judgits as you have admitted using them yourself.
You make it sound like you two are competing for a job or public office. Fer chris sakes, lighten up Mr. Uptight.
It's a thread, not a paycheck.
Do you want some cheese with that whine?
Don't worry. You will calm down at Bingo tonight! I'll let you make up some more stories there to amuse yourself and you will calm down then. ;)
This is fantastic! Waxturd/goober/jimmy/pussy... is rolling out more of his phony log ins to help make my case. Its hard to believe but RUSH10ME might be dumber than you. He couldn't figure out how you could award yourself so many judge-its because HE couldn't judge himself. No wonder FOX and Limbaugh can manipulate gullible puppets like you morons.
