If you thought Republicans couldn't get any nastier or more cynical than what we normally see from them when they appear on our corporate media, you were wrong.

Jindal Compares Obama Administration To Segregationist:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Thursday criticized Attorney General Eric Holder for trying to "stand in the schoolhouse door" and keep minority students from attending charter schools, an allusion to segregationist and former Alabama Gov. George Wallace.

"We've got Eric Holder and the Department of Justice trying to stand in the schoolhouse door to prevent minority kids, low-income kids, kids who haven’t had access to a great education, the chance to go to better schools," Jindal said at the Conservative Political Action Conference, as recorded by the Huffington Post.

The Washington Post noted that this was a reference to Wallace's "Stand in the Schoolhouse Door" protest, when he blocked two black students from entering the University of Alabama by standing in the door of the school.

Jindal also called Obama the "worst president in my lifetime."

As opposed to Bobby Jindal, who would be the future worst president of our lifetime if Americans were foolish enough to elect him to that office.
