    It would seem that doing so would be a very dangerous first amendment precedent, although we're finding that our first amendment rights of political speech are gradually being nibbled away at.

    Clearly, from my (non-lawyer amateur) point of view, Jindal's complaint about trademark infringement just doesn't hold water in a case where he's trying to misapply the law in order to stifle political speech.
