Louisiana’s exciting experiment in public-school vouchers is steaming forward, providing parents and children with educational excellence and traditional values, hooray!
But that’s not all!
It’s also an excellent lesson in how the free market can improve education, by taking taxpayer funds from the wasteful public schools and handing it to efficient private schools run by religious loons, just the way Real America wants.
Among the 119 voucher schools approved so far is New Orleans’ Light City Christian Academy, founded and run by Apostle Leonard Lucas.
The state’s voucher program will be sending this gentleman, who “walks in the fullness of his calling and wears the mantle of an Apostle and Prophet,” some $364,000 to educate 80 students ($364,000 / 80 = $4,550).

“Praise the Lord, and pass the vouchers” said the Apostles: Lucas/Ryan/Romney!

Oh Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Why do you still try to talk at people?
Don’t you remember the last time you had an audience, when you skulked around corners in your haunted mansion to give the hilarious response to the State of the Union, the unkind comparisons to Mr. Burns, and a skeleton, and Mr. Burns’s skeleton?
Remember how everyone mocked you for trying to score cheap political points on spending money on — get this haw haw! — volcano monitoring about five seconds before that terrorist Iceland volcano shut down Europe?
Because you are an asshole?
Well apparently in addition to being an asshole, you are also super boring and not very self-aware and make people wait 45 minutes listening to you yammer about yourself and your transformative changes before you will let them eat their vittles, and everyone makes fun of you and people laugh.
Dinner waited in the wings until he finished, right around the 45-minute mark.
“I can assure you that I will speak shorter than our prior speakers, because the food is here,” said State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos when he finally took to the podium, to laughs and cheers.
No, bring Bobby Jindal back!
We want to hear more about his dad for five hours, and jokes about port-o-potties while people are waiting to eat.
Mitt Romney should look no further, Bobby Jindal is the future of zzzzzzz.

Hoping to avoid a struggle similar to that between President Obama and the so-called “birther movement,” Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal released his own birth certificate on Friday.
Jindal, who is of Indian heritage, publicly issued the document “knowing that his own status will certainly be examined in the event he ends up on a presidential ticket,” The Times-Picayune reports.
Born Piyush Jindal on June 10, 1971, the former congressman arrived in the U.S. in utero, his mother, Raj Jindal, three months pregnant and moving to Baton Rouge with a scholarship offer to study nuclear physics at Louisiana State University

‘Lure of Citizenship Spawns “Birth Tourism” in NYC’
Inside a 700-square foot room, there is a double bed, a flat-screen television with cable, and a little terrace that overlooks a quiet residential street. It could easily be a bed and breakfast, but it’s not.
It’s a suite inside a maternity center in Flushing, Queens called Cupid’s House -(a.k.a. ‘Anchor Baby House’) a center that caters to so-called birth tourists — women who travel to America to give birth and leave with their American babies.
“Many of them want American citizenship for their children,” said Anna, the owner of Cupid’s House. While she advertises on her website, USANYBABY.com, and in Chinese papers, she realizes how controversial her business has become.

Note: Barack Obama’s mother didn’t need this, because she was already an AMERICAN CITIZEN!
‘Jindal’s Kenneth problem’
Bobby Jindal has a wunderkind resume: a Rhodes Scholar appointed assistant secretary of Health and Human Services at age 29, elected to the U.S. House at 33 and governor of Louisiana at 36.
Increasingly, though, he’s being likened to Kenneth, the dweeby page on “30 Rock.”
The politically devastating comparisons started popping right up after Jindal delivered the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s address a joint session of Congress. And they’ve spread like wildfire on the Internet.
“Close your eyes and think of Kenneth from ‘30 Rock.’ I can barely count the number of e-mails making that observation,” Andrew Sullivan wrote on his blog minutes after Jindal’s speech.
