Governor Jindal (R, LA) had some blunt words for his fellow Republicans. Among other things, he had this [emphasis added]:
It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments—enough of that. It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.
[S]top reducing everything to mindless slogans, tag lines, 30-second ads that all begin to sound the same.
Part of that “trust the intelligence.”
He made a number of other points; RTWT.
