It’s a stupid thing to get beat up over, but on the other hand bad grammar makes you look stupid.

Let’s face it – Twitter is pretty stupid. And it’s also stupid to bank your credibility and political stature on the performance of the 23-year old who handles your social media.

Jindal is quickly being relegated to the status of Herman Cain by the national press – who goes on and on about racism and yet saves its particular venom for Republican candidates of other-than-European heritage. That is palpable, but of course it was predictable as well – and Jindal and his team should be taking precautions not to fall into the trap Cain did.
