Jindal at a loss for words. Mirabile dictu!

Think Progress » Jindal stumped when asked to name new ‘big ideas’ that McCain is proposing.
This morning on NBC’s Meet the Press, host David Gregory asserted that the Republican Party “used to be the party of big ideas.” Gregory then asked his guest Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA), “What’s the big idea Senator McCain is campaigning on?” Jindal responded, “I think there’s several,” but couldn’t provide an answer. Gregory asked again, “Where are the new big ideas of the Republican Party that John McCain is, is championing?” And again Jindal couldn’t provide an answer.

This is the second time a McCain supporter has been stumped. Is Jindal still a genius?
