Jindal to Speak at NRCC

Louisiana's governor Bobby Jindal will be speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee's fundraiser in March. This goes along with suspicions that the corruption-busting lawmaker could run for President in 2012.

Jindal, as a rising star in the Republican Party and a potential 2012 White House contender, will take the speaking slot that in years past belonged to President Bush.

In an e-mail to donors Friday, NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions wrote: “Bobby is a rising star and is a part of a new generation of leadership in our party. He has a budding record of success, having implemented sound, common sense business practices since he took office in 2007 and started rebuilding his great state.”

Jindal has said he is only focused on running for re-election in Baton Rouge in 2011. But in November the Louisiana governor made a foray to Iowa, home of the presidential caucuses, so he’s not doing much to tamp down the 2012 speculation.

Why would a successful, intelligent young man want to be seen at a political house of horrors?

I hope he can wash the stink off after his visit.
