Bobby Jindal Is Using Louisiana Governor's Website For 2016 Campaign

Bobby Jindal went after Rand Paul in a predictably vicious manner today, using his official website as Governor of Louisiana.

Bobby Jindal launched a particularly vicious -- and predictable -- attack on Rand Paul today, saying he was unqualified to be President. I might agree with Jindal, though that doesn't necessarily mean I think Jindal is qualified, either.

Writing on his official State of Louisiana Governor's website, Jindal said:

"This is a perfect example of why Senator Paul is unsuited to be Commander-in-Chief. We have men and women in the military who are in the field trying to fight ISIS right now, and Senator Paul is taking the weakest, most liberal Democrat position.

It's one thing for Senator Paul to take an outlandish position as a Senator at Washington cocktail parties, but being Commander-in-Chief is an entirely different job. We should all be clear that evil and Radical Islam are at fault for the rise of ISIS, and people like President Obama and Hillary Clinton exacerbate it.

American weakness, not American strength, emboldens our enemies. Senator Paul's illogical argument clouds a situation that should provide pure moral clarity. Islam has a problem. ISIS is its current manifestation. And the next President's job is to have the discipline and strength to wipe ISIS off the face of the earth. It has become impossible to imagine a President Paul defeating radical Islam and it's time for the rest of us to say it."

Obviously, Bobby Jindal has a problem with Rand Paul's approach to Islam. But why is he using his official website to trumpet his displeasure?

What does ISIS have to do with running the state of Louisiana? Is it even legal for him to do that? Ethics I don't expect, but it seems like a misuse of state resources to me.
