Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s signature legislation, which I lovingly refer to as “Jesus Rode a Dinosaur Education,” has been ruled unconstitutional in its entirety.
Gov. Bobby Jindal’s education overhaul dealing with teacher tenure and evaluations was ruled unconstitutional Monday by a Baton Rouge judge. The judge had previously upheld three sections of the act, but reversed his ruling after agreeing to review the case at the request of both sides. [...]
Caldwell agreed with the Louisiana Federation of Teachers that he had misread part of the legislation before his previous ruling. He then said the entirety of the law must be declared unconstitutional because it violates the “single object” section of the state Constitution, which says any bill brought before the Legislature must contain only one “aim or purpose of enactment.”
Jindal intends to appeal the ruling and take the issue all the way to the state Supreme Court, so this won’t be last time we hear of it.
And while we’re on the subject of Bobby Jindal — CPAC, the yearly convention of conservative wackaloons that serves as a sort of Burning Man for Randian bible salesmen, moon-landing skeptics, and former Klansmen turned Obama pancake syrup entrepreneurs has apparently invited Donald Trump to appear in front of this year’s gathering of The Aggrieved.
CPAC’s guest list now includes Mitt Romney, Donald Trump, and Sarah Palin, but not Chris Christie or Bob McDonnell.
So much for not being the “stupid party.”
