A new meme! Using one of the tips from this handy Lifehacker post (Top 10 Obscure Google Search Tricks – it’s recommended as a way to find music/movies etc that you might like based on a musician/film you already like) I plugged in a few different search terms to Google to see what came up (although as I am a poliblogger with a shriveled husk of a heart, I tweaked the search in order to more likely find the pol-abuse) .
After watching Jon Stewart take the living mickey out of Bobby Jindal’s response to Obama’s big speech
(and remembering that it’s not the first time Jindal’s copped a Daily Show serve), the top results for “Jindal reminds me of” were:
“Jindal reminds me of a song” which took me to a song named “White Houses” by one Vanessa Carlton. Total fail on the pol-abuse front, as the song has NOTHING to do with politics, but I hadn’t heard of her and she’s a bit different. Kewl.
“Jindal reminds me of Kenneth on 30 Rock” from a Twitterer, and he’s not the only one who thinks so. I haven’t seen the show yet, so I dunno. It does rather strike me though that comparisons to dorky TV characters is not an especially promising position for the GOP’s new “rising star”.
P.S “better than Jindal” got a lot of variations on the “even Sarah Palin would be” front.
