Bobby Jindal\’s got himself elected. Over at Pickled Politics Sunny has this to say:
On Saturday Bobby Jindal became the country’s first Indian-American governor, and that too in the deeply Republican south state of Carolina.
Err, there is no state of "Carolina" in the US. There\’s North Carolina and South Carolina, but no Carolina. He also links to a NYT piece about Jindal:
But he is not a natural fit for Louisiana.
Which actually makes some sense, as Jindal has not been elected Governor of the non-existent state of Carolina but of Louisiana. Which is indeed in the Deep South but is not deeply Republican: the outgoing Governor, one of the two Senators and two of the nine Congressmen are Democrats.
Lucky we\’ve got these journalists out here blogging, showing us how to do the fact checking really, isn\’t it?
