I don't agree with Bobby Jindal about much, but if wants every Republican in Congress to quit like their dear leader John Boehner, who am I to argue? The governor from Louisiana must be getting nervous these days, because he was echoing the same crazy stuff on Neil Cavuto's show on Fox this Friday as he was spouting on Twitter and most of it just looked like someone who was desperately crying for attention.

About the only difference between what Jindal said to Cavuto and what he posted on Twitter was he managed to rattle off a laundry list of right wing grievances and lies as well, from Planned Parenthood, to the Iranian nuclear deal, to gay marriage, to fearmongering over the national debt his party created while suggesting that Mitch McConnell, along with saying that every member of Congress should just pack it up and take their ball home if they're not going to get every single thing passed that the extremists on the right in this country like Jindal and his ilk are demanding of them.

This is from a little earlier same day, prior to his appearance on Cavuto's show:
Republican Crazy On Steroids: Bobby Jindal Wants To Fire The Entire House:

Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) wants to fire elected officials — but only in D.C., obviously… Because he’s an elected official in Louisiana.

Jennifer Bendery of Huffington Post tweeted of Jindal during the Value Voters Summit:

Basically this is the right wing idea of making government smaller to make government better on steroids. Jindal wants to just get rid of everyone, especially people like Boehner who actually know things. Sure, Boehner wasn’t a good leader and coming on the heels of Nancy Pelosi’s exceptionally productive leadership he looked even more inept, but Boehner only had two choices: Bow to the Tea Party or quit.

So Jindal is running for president as the person who wants to fire everyone in D.C., as if replacing everyone will make things better. But replacing Republicans with new Republicans will only lead to more Senator Ted Cruz types — the selfish, grand-standing delusionals who use government to raise money for themselves.

So much for Jindal's proclamation that they should "stop being the stupid party."

I'm not sure if I agree with Sarah's assessment that they're imploding on themselves just yet, but that's definitely the direction we're heading with some of this infighting.
