U.S. Sen. David Vitter isn't fond of Gov. Bobby Jindal (and vice versa). So was it passive-aggressive, or just plain aggressive when attendees left Jindal's presidential announcement last week to find "David Vitter For Governor" push cards stuck under the windshield wipers of their cars in the parking lot?
In case anyone missed the message, the card sought to contrast Jindal's globetrotting ways to Vitter's self-proclaimed focus on Louisiana. "Leading us as Governor will be David's last political job, elected or appointed," the card read. "He wants to take on Louisiana's most important challenges, not play politics with them."
Vitter's frequent jabs at Jindal strike many political observers as ironic because the senator is arguably the most Jindal-like of the four leading candidates for governor — certainly in terms of political philosophy and policymaking, if not governing style. When Vitter first announced his candidacy for governor, he was quickly (and widely) dubbed "Bobby Jindal on steroids."
