Bobby Jindal elected President

Relax. President of his incoming freshman class of Republican congressman only. Still, a very substantial honor. From

The new Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 109th Congress have elected Bobby Jindal, R-La., president of the freshman class by a unanimous vote.

According to the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, the 33-year-old “eager-beaver A student,” with “no significant opponents” to worry about, “spent much of the election season quietly getting a jump on everyone who actually did have to worry about getting elected.”

Jindal used allocated chunks of his $2-million war chest to help GOP candidates facing tougher races. In his most recent financial disclosure report, the Times-Picayune said, the Indian American donated $46,000 to other Republican candidates for House seats, $25,000 in “excess funds” to the National Republican Congressional Committee, and $750 to the National Rifle Association’s political action committee. Jindal estimates he donated or helped raise at least $150,000 for other GOP candidates, the newspaper said.

Very smart. He was thinking ahead by greasing the skids like a political pro. The Indian American Republican Council immediately issued a statement of congratulations:

The Indian American community is very proud of Bobby’s election to Congress and his election as President of the Freshman class. We know he will be a strong voice on fiscal matters and the moral issues facing our society today as he serves in Congress.

Looks like everyone is hopping on the “moral issues” bandwagon.
