BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (The Adobo Chronicles® ) –  He considers himself a tanned, white boy from Louisiana.

Governor and GOP presidential candidate, Piyush “Bobby” Jindal, 44, has become famous for a self portrait that hangs in the Louisiana state capitol –  a visibly Caucasian chief executive.

In a limited-edition campaign t-shirt for his 2016 presidential bid, he used a very catchy slogan that says, “Tanned. Rested. Ready.”Jindal-Tee-Shirt-150x150

Today, during an interview on FOX News on the topic of the confederate flag being removed from South Carolina’s statehouse grounds, Jindal proclaimed:  “Like the same-sex marriage issue, I believe this should be decided on by the states, not the courts. Let the people’s voices be heard. Like many others who hail from the great Creole state, the Confederate flag is a symbol of my (white) heritage, and that heritage has nothing to do with racism or hate.”

Is Jindal trying to be an opposite version of Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader in Washington state who came under fire recently for claiming to be black?

Nah, he really is a white boy who is just tanned. Or sun-burnt.

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – When Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal officially launched his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in the 2016 elections, he donned a “white face” make-up to mimic that of a clown.

Jindal is the 13th Republican to announce a presidential bid.

The governor was made up as a clown to convey a message to his supporters that the Republican race for nomination is like a circus, with everyone trying to throw his hat into the ring, even without the necessary qualifications (read: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Jeb Bush).

“I represent true statesmanship, fiscal accountability, leadership, management expertise and have the presidential qualities that none of my Republican opponents possess,” Jindal said.

While Jindal drew cheers from his supporters, a group of professional clowns gathered in front of the state capitol to protest Jindal’s clowning gimmick, saying that the governor’s antics were distasteful and was a big insult to them.

Clowns are supposed to be funny, smart and endearing.  “Jindal is none of those,” the clowns said.

“He didn’t even do a good make-up job,” they added.

The incident reminded Americans about the 1992 presidential campaign in which then Vice President George H. Bush called Bill Clinton and Al Gore “bozos.”

Wasilla, Alaska (Exclusive to The Adobo Chronicles) – Many will remember Sarah Palin’s controversial comments during a speech last year, declaring that “the nation’s high levels of debt, including money borrowed from China, was “like slavery.”  While she prefaced her comments by saying “this isn’t racist,” many of her critics still believe that it actually was.

Her remarks were sharply criticized by  television host Martin Bashir who cited the diaries of a former plantation overseer who punished slaves by having someone defecate in their mouth or urinate on their face. He suggested the former Alaska governor deserved the same treatment.  Bashir subsequentlly apologized and resigned from his post at MSNBC.m

A couple of weeks ago, Palin posted a photograph of her and three African American ladies to her Twitter Account, with the following comment:

“Proof I am not racist. See, I’ve got black friends too — three of them, in fact!”

The ladies were, in fact, representatives of MAC (the cosmetic store) at the Pecanland Mall in Monroe, Louisiana. None of them have ever met Palin before.

Palin was in Louisiana campaigning for Republican Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge) who is currently in a heated senate runoff against Senator Mary Landrieu, D-LA. The runoff will take place on December 6.

Apparently, Palin left her cosmetic bag on the plane and had to stop by the Mall for some last-minute make-up with the assistance of the MAC ladies. She thanked the ladies for “helping out with a travel emergency.”
