    there is nothing inaccurate here. While I believe in the firm separation of not just church and state, but church and politics too...the fact is that when a politician writes what appears to be poisonous and inflammatory pieces on other religious, people ought to know that and that is a fair attack.

    If the ad had attacked him with false information or questioned Jindal's own personal faith then I would agree with you--but this is nothing of the sort.

      His record is his record and definitely fair game.

      I'm just wondering about the decision to use this now, when it appears they don't have much of a chance and all they accomplish is creating even more religious division in a state that already has too much of it.

      You reep what you sow.

      No sympathy at all. Gleeful as all get up.

      Don't forget, BillO's "War on Christmas" is four months away. Remember what these people do/did/will do in the name of God to divide this nation and make us out to be God haters.
