Today in egregious overreaches: Gov. Jindal to tell another state how its courts should work

by Jeremy Hooper

The anti-gay far-right's continued attempt to punish a unanimous Iowa state Supreme Court panel for simply doing its job (i.e. ruling on the matter of marriage presented to them) is innately chilling, and it is something that anyone who cares about an independent judiciary and the intellectual assessment thereof should denounce without hesitation. But there's something particularly unsavory about the news that a sitting governor from another state is joining this effort:

Of course Santorum is there. That's what he basically does now. For a job. He joins extreme, uber-far-right tours like one and gives some sort of divisive speech. That's how he earns his living.

But for Gov. Jindal to take time from his own job governing his own state to join this effort? I'm not sure who should be more offended, fair-minded Louisianans or freedom-minded Iowans!
