In an ongoing to effort to ensure that he’s never taken seriously by intelligent people, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said that he thinks that Duck Dynasty “star” Willie Robertson would make a great running mate and Vice President of the United States.
It’s no secret that Jindal fantasizes about Robertson. Jindal attended a Good Friday Prayer Event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last Friday. It was there that he called the protection of discrimination against LGBT people a “disappointment.” It was also at this event that he slobbered all over himself as he introduced Robertson (another well-known LGBT hater) as the keynote speaker, calling Robertson, “an icon, a cultural figure and a hero of many.”
At the event, the banner with Robertson’s name eclipsed Jindal’s name. When asked if Jindal would consider Robertson as a running mate he replied:
Yeah, but that font’s going to have to be reversed. It’s going to have to be reversed. As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president — I assume that’s what you’re asking — not the other way around. He’s a great guy, I think he’d be a great running mate. It’d be a huge pay cut for him, so I’m not sure he’d be willing to do it.
If you think this is a joke, you are mistaken. Jindal features the Duck Dynasty family more prominently than his own on his Twitter header banner:
And he tweets about him and other Duck Dynasty members often.
Looks like the love affair might be one-sided though. Robertson doesn’t tweet about Jindal:
Can you imagine what the rest of the world would think of us if these two were in the White House?
