BREAKING: Bobby Jindal Calls It Quits

Via USA Today:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal ended his long-shot campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday. Jindal made the announcement on Fox News, saying “it’s not my time.” While Jindal’s campaign showed some progress in Iowa — site of the Feb. 1 caucuses that open the Republican nomination contest — he had trouble gaining traction in other states.

So that leaves, what? Thirteen? Twelve?

  • LovesIrony

    another bigoted fuck bites the dust, bye bye shit

  • RobinP

    The timing is interesting, a few days before the governor’s election… maybe trolling David Vitter?

    • barracks9

      Nah, I figure he realized there still a half dozen or so people here in Louisiana that he hadn’t screwed over completely…yet.

  • Craig S

    Buh Bye Bobby

  • anne marie in philly

    buh-bye, piyush! don’t let the door hit ya in the ass when you leave! and take your steaming pile of h8 back to louisiana!

  • William

    If Bobby can’t get any traction, he should get out and Piyush.

  • kirtanloorii

    There were way too many republicans running for president anyways.

    • EdmondWherever

      Always will be.

  • justmeeeee

    Bobby, ain’t NOBODY got time fo’ dat…not now, not ever.

  • Secure

    Goodbye Governor Goofball!

  • RossPDX

    It’s not my time.

    …or century.

    • William

      …or planet.

        or space/time continuum.

    • Cattleya1

      I’m shocked! I feel so sorry for ‘Bobby’. I’m sure his time will come… in a universe far, far away… President Piyush Jindal has just taken his oath to Emperor Rush Palpatine.

  • LovesIrony

    too stupid for the party of stupid

    • charemor

      It is hard to believe that this idiot was actually a Rhodes Scholar.

      It’s sounds like you’re the maître d’ at a Republican restaurant: Two Stupid? Party of Stupid? Guess they wandered off again.

        Probably hanging at the bar

    • Todd20036

      That was a decent bit of insight he had. Too bad he didn’t take his own advice.

  • barracks9

    I guess Fox News finally started taking his calls.

    • Cuberly

      So according to Allen West, Jindal’s campaign was what’s wrong with the country? Am I getting posts confused again? What day is this? What do teeth taste like?

      • 1) Most likely
        2) Sorta, but they have points in common, so you’re ok!
        3) Today is warm sweater day
        4) Teeth dear one taste like chiclets.

        • Cuberly

          Whew! Thanks!

          Do you offer on-demand bearings tuning services? Could totally see a market for that 😉

          • for the right price, sure!

  • KentDean

    I’m disappointed. As a Louisianan, I was hoping the headline meant he was quittng the governorship early.

    • Rambie

      Nah, he’s not Sara. He doesn’t have the hair for it.

    • Hal Watts

      Just think…Louisiana could be ditching Piyush and Diaper Dave (aka Vitter the Shitter) in the same week…. One can dream!

      • GlennF

        David Vitter, realizing the trouble he faces in the Louisiana Governors race, no doubt successfully put pressure on the very unpopular Jindal to exit his very unpopular run for the rethuglican nomination for president.

        That along with his attempt to tie his Democratic opponent, John Bel Edwards, to President Obama’s very unpopular Syrian refugee plan, will unfortunately probably assure a win for Vitter. I hope I’m wrong though.

      • bkmn

        Diaper Dave is not going to go down without a fight. I hope Edwards swaddles him good.

      • TampaDink

        I think he has stabbed himself in the campaign…but has yet to bleed out.

  • Sam_Handwich

    Lindsey and Jalapeño are next!

    • KCMC

      Lindsey was grilled today by NPR with re to how much longer he might hang in.

      • Sam_Handwich

        also, the Jalapeño sex party tapes were released today

        • ooohhhh! excited! i hope its when he was “interviewing” the go-go dancers for the Lincoln bedroom!

        • LonelyLiberal

          Strangely, polling shows the candidate up seven points post the release. One point for each…but I digress.

          • Sam_Handwich

            it’s the end of the tape when Jalapeño uses the velvet drapes to clean up. very disturbing.

          • LonelyLiberal

            That was actually what sealed my vote. He not only cleaned up bodily fluids with panache, he did it with incredible style.

          • Sam_Handwich

            damn that spicy bastid!

          • LonelyLiberal

            A neat candidate is a sexy candidate. Now if you’d video a 15-way and clean up after that, it would put you…dare I say it…ahead.

          • charemor

            Het, Sam, is it our Jalapeno here on JMG that you are taklkng about?

    • Doug105
      • Sam_Handwich

        • Steve Teeter

          Mm, I’m going to eat some hot pickled jalapeno slices right now. Yum.

          • Steve Teeter

            Fuck! I nearly blinded myself! I accidentally rubbed my right eye with the same hand I’d been eating the jalapeños with! Pepper oil right into my eye. Pain, pain, pain!.

            For about fifteen endless minutes. Then it slowly went away.

          It needs an olive & a toothpick to complete the ensemble.

          Thats turkey.

  • BobSF_94117

    I wonder if the GOP think tanks and lobbying firms are in a sort of reverse bidding war, trying to foist him off on whoever doesn’t fight hard enough…

    • Steve Teeter

      I don’t know if Jindal’s even coming back to Louisiana to be governor. Nbcnews.com said he “would be returning to work at the think tank America Next ‘where I will
      be outlining a blueprint for making this the American century.’ ”

      And America Next can’t turn him down. He’s the chairman.

      • BobSF_94117

        From what I can tell after a very brief Googling, America Next is Jindal. Or maybe his wife.

  • Blobby

    Dude – it’s not your time. It never was. It never will be.

  • Jmdintpa

    did gawd tell him to run ?

    • PeterC

      Finally

    • Craig Howell

      She told the rest of us to run…away.

  • RemusL

    Now he can go back to not caring about his own state.

  • Sam_Handwich

    in time, we will be able to pick up the shattered pieces and move on with our lives

  • Sashineb

    Yippee!! Great news! Glad he finally accepted that nobody wants him.

    • Reality.Bites

      I’m sure his wife could have told him that.

      • Sashineb

        He probably doesn’t listen to her. You know, that biblical thing about how women should be quiet. I Timothy 2:12 “I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.”

  • Blake J Butler

    awe!!! maybe the Duck Dynasty cast will feel sorry for you, because i sure as hell don’t.

    • ok, help out the lost please, how is this disgusting? isn’t this law a good thing?

      • Sam_Handwich

        sorry. the lack of GOP support, all along, is disgusting

        Federal legislation intended to provide health monitoring and
        financial aid to sick 9/11 workers is known as the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. Its sponsors include Senator Bob Menendez and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney. The original bill did not pass.[16][17] The U.S. House passed a new version of the act[18] in September 2010. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg asked the Senate to do the same.[19] In a Senate vote held on December 9, 2010, Democrats were unable to break a Republican filibuster against the bill; the vote was 57 in favor of ending debate and 42 against, but 60 votes were needed for the bill to proceed to an up-or-down vote.[20] Republicans outlined concerns around paying for the $7.4 billion bill in an appropriate way.[20]Additionally, they also raised concerns about creating an expansive new healthcare entitlement program and re-opening the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.[21] Comedian Jon Stewart of The Daily Show was credited by the White House and other media and political news outlets for bringing awareness of the Republican filibuster on the Zadroga bill.[22] The bill received final Congressional approval on December 22, 2010,[23] and was enacted by President Obama on January 2, 2011.

        ….On October 1, 2015, the Zadroga Act expired.

          i remember reading some buzz before the Tampa convention — that they were going to feature a hologram of Reagan on stage. it never panned out, but they did manage to get Clint Eastwood to yell at a chair. So that was fun. Anyway, i think a Reagan hologram would be leading in Iowa, NH and SC right now, by 50 points!

          • TampaDink

            I’m not so sure. The love/worship the dead Gipper but few would support all of the things he did back in the day. Short memories & unwillingness to crack a book makes the dead seem ideal.

          • Todd20036

            That is correct. They decided not to because they were afraid the hologram would have outshined the 2012 GOP candidates.

            Actually, I had to agree with that.

    • Larry Larson

      Did you include Carly, even if she doesn’t have one?

        she may have several in her toy box.

      • TampaDink

        I did include her. Back when she was driving major corporations (into the dirt), she emasculated some poor intern, so she has a dick. Its her version of Eleanor Rigby face that she keeps in a jar by the door.

None of them will ever be POTUS nor even their party’s candidate for the office.

      He was tanned too much, me thinks.

    The accomplishments! The message! The charisma! It is just so unfair.

    God DAMN it! NOW who’s going to exorcise the demon of homosexuality out of me? I mean, the rest of the GOP can try to reeducate or legislate it away; but I was pretty sure that Jindal had The Cure, having had such fine success in the past….

    Booby Jangles, Booby Jangles, don’t run.

    • Reality.Bites

      Dylan’s just one of many artists who covered it. Jerry Jeff Walker is the composer and original performer.

      • Joseph Miceli

        Thanks, but I was born in 64 and that song will always mean Bod Dylan to me.

        • Reality.Bites

          The song was recorded in 1968. The most popular version was by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1970. Dylan is just listed among the many, many artists who covered it. You may associate it with Dylan, but it’s in no way “his” song. He didn’t write it and he didn’t record the best-known version.

          • Joseph Miceli

            Geez, don’t get so excited. It was a poorly written parody of a song. What is it with everyone today? I’ve got DiaperDave (not David Vitter, but the guy here on JMG ) our for my blood and now you are being mean to me over a song from 1968. I get that music is important to you but all I did was repeat my experience.

      I was sitting at the bar at Outback and the news was showing an Air France jet landing, but without sound or captions I didn’t know why it was significant.

      If those are both false alarms based on unconfirmed threats then ISIS could really wreak havoc in the US next week with Thanksgiving travel.

    So his pimp puppet master benefactor closed his checkbook?

    • johncAtl

      Yeah, the “benefactor” found out he wasn’t as white as his official portrait. And also that his name was Piyush!

  • Always Be Washin’…

    Piyush Jindal is part of the reason that so many Republicans oppose Affirmative Action. But it’s their own damned fault for trying to foist off unqualified minorities on the electorate just to make themselves look more tolearant and inclusive. Desperate for any brown-skinned candidate, they pick Uncle Tomming, toadying fuckwits like Jyndal, simply because he’s willing to convert to fundamentalist Catholicism and parrot the party, take on a redneck moniker, and talk like a backwoods sister-fucker from Duggarville. Fuck you, Piyush! Fuck you and your shit-scraping ancestors all the way to Punjab.. In MY country, you’ll always be washing bras.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        Oh, I get it now.

      • Necessitas

        Third time, if you count the human race.

    • Porkie

      There are plenty of valid reasons to go after lttle Bobby Jindal why the fuck would you pull out his race and his family’s origins…….and, can I just say Sarah Palin?

      • Many Reasons

        As you said, there are many reasons. But among them is the sense that he has ridiculously attempted to so assimilate himself into Southern Redneck Republican culture, (an action over which he DOES have control) that in the process he himself has denied his origins. The conversion to Catholicism? His hypocritically anti-immigrant stance? It is as if he HIMSELF is ashamed of his origins, and tries to be a good ol’ boy southern redneck, willfully ignorant to the attitudes held by the majority of Republican voters against people precisely like….Piyush JIndal. I don’t think an affectionate reminder to Piyush of his cultural ties is at all out of line, nor is it out of line to point out to him his hypocrisy, and the futility of appealing to an electorat base who fundamentally hates and mistrusts people like him.

        • Porkie

          Yup, that makes sense, it’s reasoned and reasonable, but that’s not what your post said.

  • Traxley Launderette

    Off topic, but relevant due to republican dickbagerry:

    • tcinsf

      Wow. They are disgusting, and the fact that they (Tancredo and other wing nut politicos) have so many followers is frightening. I checked out the image on his Facebook page; he used the Obama campaign symbol to suggest that Obama is at fault. Un fucking believable.

        • FAEN

          Dear baby Jeebus I had JUST managed to get that image of Fat Bastard out of my head and it’s back again. BTW that pic is one of the many reasons he will never be POTUS.

          As for The Huckster-I think we should all keep sending him buckets of chicken. He’ll be out of the race in no time. Plus with all that grease and fat in his mouth he won’t be able to make any more offensive comments. At least for a while.

  • TreGibbs

    Nice work. Captain Obvious makes it official.

  • DaddyRay

    The mere fact that the GOP once thought Jindal was a rising star enough to give the rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union should tell everyone just how desperate the GOP is.

    • charemor

      The entire GOP is made up of “rising stars” all of whom crash and burn very quickly.

      • Todd20036

        Except for Trump and Carson. And damned if I know why

        • Helen Damnation

          BangBang™ Carson doesn’t know why, the Donald™ doesn’t know why, you don’t know why, and I don’t know why. Can someone tell us, goddamnit, WHY?

    • billbear1961

      They should feel desperate, because they’ve become total moral bankrupts.

      BUT, they’ve cowed the media, making them afraid to mention facts, to confront them with FACTS, for God’s sake. They’re AFRAID to question them about the policies they want to inflict on the nation, as though we had NO RIGHT to question candidates running for office about their positions! (Democrats, however, consent to be grilled, and, like simpletons, they don’t complain about the media’s outrageous double standards!)

      Also, this is a country where only the worst, most hateful SCUM can be counted on to VOTE.

      In addition, the courts are letting the right suppress the vote, and the federal government isn’t investigating when GOP-controlled state governments pass laws to make it impossible to investigate what they’re doing with taxpayer funds (giving them away to corporate gangsters).

      The electorate–the third who voted–has given them–the party whose reckless policies of insane deregulation led to the financial meltdown and the worst recession since the 1930s–majority control of BOTH chambers of Congress.

      The country sits by, with little protest, while a small minority within the GOP threatens to shut government down every time they don’t like a given policy.

      If they control a few more state governments, they could call for a Constitutional Convention to turn the Constitution into a NAZI RAG.

      In a nation where the electorate and the media CARED about their democracy, and where the party opposed to them knew how to FIGHT, the GOP would be feeling desperate, because their policies are indefensible, and people don’t like them when they HEAR about them in DETAIL.

      But that’s not the kind of country the U.S. is, anymore, Daddy R.

      So, I don’t think the GOP is feeling too desperate.

    • FAEN

      It was the walk to the podium at that very rebuttal that caused Piyush to go from ‘Colored Republican that may have a shot’ to ‘Token colored Republican who we can trot out to prove we’re not racist’.

    • Todd20036

      They wanted a non-white candidate to try to make inroads to non white voters. Now they are down to Carson, and I would love to see him take the nomination, for both the entertainment value and the inevitability of a democrat in the White House January, 2017.

  • Robincho

    It takes Gunga Dim a while, but he’s finally figured out that his ass has been gone all Rikki-Tikki-Tavi on. “It’s not my time”? No shit it’s not your time, Piyush. Not now, and
    not ever. If Gandhi were around, he’d break you on his spinning wheel (and he wasn’t
    ever really given to such displays…)

  • Whitey’s Conspiracy

    This just in: Bobby Jindal was running for president.

  • Michael

    The man who hates Obama’s Executive Orders signed an Executive Order giving anti-gay “Christians” the special right to discriminate in Louisiana. Looks like his pandering didn’t help him any. Bye, bye, Piyush!

  • TheSpinMonkey

    Wait….didnt he claim god told him to run for president? Seems that endorsement isn’t worth a hell of a lot.

    • motordog

      They already have an answer for that…it goes something like “God told him to ‘run’ for the office, God didn’t tell him he’d win…but His plans were served by the act of running anyway.” Yeah, it’s all bullshit, but that’s religion for you. Basically a big game of ‘Let’s Pretend’ where they change the rules as they play.

Prior to this election run he and it were just dog crap in the republican solar system . now he can claim this run and the rejection by Republicans to claim that they, not him, are out of step with conservative principles.

  • NMNative

    Another loser drops out. Now, after the other 14 drop out as well, maybe the republicans can find someone actually intelligent enough to run.
    Although, for the life of me, I can’t think of any republicans who might be smart enough. If these guys and one woman are the best they have to offer………

    Funny that he said it was an “honor” to run for president. An honor is bestowed upon a person by someone else. He was the only one who wanted a President Jindal. Even in the video where he told his kids he was running, there were like “OK Dad, whatever. Can we go now?”
