Multicultural Foolishness

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal provides an inspiring example of a child of Hindu immigration who embraced traditional Americanism to be a "Good Ol' Boy" and ultimately, a wildly popular leader across all ethnic lines. He took the name "Bobby" from a boy from TV's "The Brady Bunch" and converted to Catholicism in high school. This led Debra Solomon of New York Times Magazine to pose a profoundly OBNOXIOUS question: "If the Republican Party bills itself as the party of family values, what should we make of the fact that you (Jindal) rejected the name your parents gave you, their political affiliation and their religion"?

Solomon ignores the importance of the larger American family, with distinctive traditions that newcomers should enthusiastically adopt. Nation fragmentation stems not from immigration, but from multicultural foolishness that undermines the assimilation process.

I totally agree. How about a ticket in 2012 Jindal/Palin or Palin/Jindal?

Yeah ... Jindal & Palin would make a great combo if our country was ever invaded by demonic Hellspawn and needed the pres & VP to perform exorcisms.

Sir Knight,

Our country has already been invaded; some would describe the invaders differently. Both from outside and inside.
