Wow, bobby jindal recounting an exorcism he was present for in 1994 hasn’t got much press as you’d expect. Weird…
“Strangely, I found myself repeating the Hail Mary until it became a chant. Being a recent convert to Catholicism, I had yet to accept the Catholic doc trines concerning Mary and considered any form of Marian devotion to be idolatry. Though I had never before prayed a Hail Mary in my life, I suddenly found myself incapable of any other form of prayer. Somehow, Mary’s intercessions allowed me to find peace during that long night; I knew that I had sur vived the worst and that I would exit with my faith intact. It terrified me to recall how close I came to turning away from Christ out of fear.
The crucifix had a calming effect on Susan, and her sister was soon brave enough to bring a Bible to her face. At first, Susan responded to biblical pas sages with curses and profanities. Mixed in with her vile attacks were short and desperate pleas for help. In the same breath that she attacked Christ, the Bible’s authenticity, and everyone assembled in prayer, Susan would suddenly urge us to rescue her. It appeared as if we were observing a tremendous battle between the Susan we knew and loved and some strange evil force. But the momentum had shifted and we now sensed that victory was at hand.
While Alice and Louise held Susan, her sister continued holding the Bible to her face. Almost taunting the evil spirit that had almost beaten us minutes before, the students dared Susan to read biblical passages. She choked on certain passages and could not finish the sentence “Jesus is Lord.” Over and over, she repeated “Jesus is L..L..LL,” often ending in profanities. In between her futile attempts, Susan pleaded with us to continue trying and often smiled between the grimaces that accompanied her readings of Scripture. Just as suddenly as she went into the trance, Susan suddenly reappeared and claimed “Jesus is Lord.”
With an almost comical smile, Susan then looked up as if awakening from a deep sleep and asked, “Has something happened?” She did not re member any of the past few hours and was startled to find her friends breaking out in cheers and laugh ter, overwhelmed by sudden joy and relief.”
I’m done discrediting jindal. It’s way too easy. I can’t wait until the gop tries to prop up a new puppet on the stage.
palin – fail. jindal – fail. who’s next?
Conor, thank you for the link.
P.S. I’ve gotta admit that I’m slightly scared of Pawlenty in 2012 but I think he’s too “normal” for the gop base to rally behind.
I think it’s funny to watch how much Jindal scares the leftists…he’s a Conservative, and a Catholic…I’ll bet that scares the hell out of you guys.
He will be President of The United States someday, maybe not in ’12, but he WILL BE President. America will be in GREAT need of a Conservative after Obama is done thrashing the Consitution. He actually gets scarier every day.
Jindal/Palin ’12 Anyone?…
I don’t think jindal scares ANYONE on the left. For real. He could have a side job performing exorcisms and I wouldn’t mind – but, his 1994 attendance cited above is going to flip A LOT of people out.
Moreover, his awkward position on the stimulus plan (and horrible republican response two nights ago) didn’t help with favorably introducing him to America. It’s easy to run a fossil fuel laden state – but, has he realized that fossil fuel commodity prices have tanked across the board? He’ll be begging for every cent of his stimulus later on this year unless future prices change direction quickly.
All of this said, jindal will NEVER be president. Nor will palin. In fact, besides these two clowns, the only other 2 people I’d rather not have our nuclear codes are bin laden and ahmadinejad. If jindal/palin run together in 2012, I could definitely see Obama pulling off a 1984 reagan~esque like electoral map victory. It will be REALLY ugly.
Pawlenty needs to find a sane running mate and the gop will have a chance again one of these days. tom ridge? Naw, too old. oh, Charlie Crist?
Sh!t, a Pawlenty/Crist ticket could give the dems a run for their money in 2012. Luckily, I’m pretty sure Americans won’t forget the incompetencies of the bush administration for at least 12-20+ more years.
Agree to disagree. The American people will grow tired of the Obama Regime…
Now here is where I will interject something about socialism, and you will counter with something about the last 8 years…we’re so predictable.

epic fail EPIC!!!!
jindal is plainly an idiot who actually believes in stone age fairy tales.
not much of a leap from pantothenic demon infested Hinduism to pantothenic demon infested Catholicism.
its actually the exact same “AGRICULTURAL” BASED hogwash KRISHNA OR CHRIST.
give me a break
any adult who does more than pay lip service to these ancient stone age beliefs in the name of tradition.
is not to be taken seriously as an adult much less a politicain doctor lawyer or military leader it is their achilles heel.
always available for explotation by those who know better.
to participate in a so called “exorcism”
is beyond the pale.
this man jindal is in need of serious therapy as are any follwers of these fantasy childish tales of AFTERLIFES demon angels and such etc.
it is SHAMEFULL as an adult to have to deal with such backward and mentally retarded people and cultures.
who for the sake of just some upright leadership would act SANE.
great commentary on that embarrassing speech…my favorite part from the above article..
“We will pass over Jindal’s delivery, which sounded a little like a junior high schooler’s entry into the Chamber of Commerce “I Speak for Fiscal Restraint” contest. The content was the thing: a message to the nation that the Republicans were not going to have anything important or useful to say about the current economic crisis.”
“Louisiana has gotten $130 billion in post-Katrina aid. How is it that the stars of the Republican austerity movement come from the states that suck up the most federal money?”
