Let's send Bobby Jindal to Yellowstone


Instead of monitoring volcanoes, what Congress should be monitoring is the eruption of spending in Washington, D.C.

Um, yeah.

The swarm of earthquakes that hit Yellowstone National Park in late December and January was the second-largest earthquake swarm in Yellowstone's recorded seismic history, the Yellowstone Volcano Laboratory said today in its updated analysis of the quakes...

The Yellowstone Plateau, which comprises Yellowstone National Park, is one of the largest supervolcanoes in the world and has gone through three volcanic cycles spanning two million years that included some of the world's largest-known eruptions.

Yeah, no need to monitor that.

But then Bobby Jindal probably thinks the Earth is only 10,000 years old.

THAT'S the GOP's best hope ladies and gentlemen.

Update: Nate Silver was on this same line of thought last night.
