WSJ puffs Jindal, neglects to mention that he is an exorcist.

Rebel With a Cause: Bobby Jindal's Spiritual Journey -
Ms. Shukla, and other Hindus, were disappointed that Mr. Jindal abstained from voting on H.R. 747, the "Diwali resolultion" passed in late 2007 while Mr. Jindal was still in Congress that recognized the festival celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs. But Mr. Jindal brushed away any criticisms that he did not pay "enough" attention to ethnic or religious interest groups. "I've always thought that each of us as an individual should make our own decisions," said Mr. Jindal. "I think it is unfortunate that so often in modern society we tend to try to group people by stereotypes and hyphenated identifications." That's a lesson he may soon be taking to a wider audience.

In Shatner voice: "Head exploding. Does. Not. Compute. AAAAARGH!"

It's surprising to me that many Louisiana residents don't know about Jindal's 1994 exorcism experience. In college he participated in an impromptu exorcism of a "friend" after a "minister" refused to exorcise the friend's demons. Here are a few links.

America may or may not be ready for a national political debate about exorcism and Satanic demons.
