Jindal "Not Running" For President in 2012, Jindal Lies

Pareene · 12/10/08 06:22PM

Charismatic Republican Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal told everyone sorry, but he's not running for president in 2012. Oddly, everyone seems to be taking this "announcement" seriously! Jindal just made a trip to Iowa and people are still taking him at his word! It's just a lie, everyone. The only people who ever announce they're not running this early and mean it are guys who make career-ending fuckups and guys smart enough to know they can't win. (Like goofy-looking Mark Warner, pictured.) [CNN]
