Don't you ever get tired of being wrong all the time?

Bobby Jindal, one month ago today:

Really? Because I'm pretty sure a volcano erupting would definitely be worse than any eruption of spending, any way you slice it.

Wait a minute, what's that you say? A volcano erupted yesterday?
Mount Redoubt Volcano In Alaska Erupts Explosively

ScienceDaily (Mar. 23, 2009) — Alaska's Mount Redoubt Volcano has erupted, spewing ash thousands of feet into the air.

The volcano, 106 miles southwest of Anchorage, erupted explosively on March 22, 2009, at approximately 10:38 PM AKDT, sending a cloud of volcanic ash to an estimated 50,000 feet above sea level. Scientists from the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) are monitoring the volcano closely as the eruption continues.

Ash plumes generated by the explosive bursts are drifting north-northeast. Ash fall has been reported in Skwentna and the Chuitna area.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; you really just can't make this stuff up (via Suril's G-Reader feed, what it do?).


  1. I know people say stupid things all the time, but you really can't make up the Governor of Louisiana ridiculing a natural disaster monitoring system.

    Because the volcano was shrouded by clouds or darkness, monitoring systems were key in alerting pilots to the presence of potentially deadly ash in the air. "Without instruments in the ground, we would not have been able to tell you this was coming," said an official with the U.S. Geological Survey

    What a clod.
