An Ode to Piyush Jindal.

So, you might have thought "blood for oil" was a swindle?
Perhaps you openly wanted Bush failure in Iraq?
And now, a message from Bobby Jindal...
"Have no fear, Rush -- and fifth columnists -- 'cause Bobby's got your back!"

How is it that *he's* complaining about "gotcha games"?!
And the pressure to say  "no sir, I don't want the president to fail"?
"You're either with us or against us", remember,  Piyush Jindal?
Who cares about America, when there's ideology to rail?

Many thousands of Americans went to jail for protesting,
not against a president or party, but against a needless war.
What of your loyalty, Piyush? Maybe you should ask an Arab-American
What those long lines in 2002 outside INS were for?

You so ideologically white as snow, untouched by reality.
Showing remarkably little consideration for similar others.
People seeking refuge deported, sometimes to violence and jail
from Syria... Iran...U.S.-backed dictators. Daughters, sons, fathers, mothers.

You, who overlooked American heroes, indefinitely detained
and others  pigmentally challenged... thinking there's no sin...
never admitting such notions brought human misery, both here and there,
and now afraid that the other guys -- America -- might win.
