He must finally be vested in the pundit pension plan

Bobby Jindal has written enough op-eds by now. It's about time he started adhering to the customary standards and practices.  This is a pretty good step in that direction.
WASHINGTON -- Gov. Bobby Jindal didn't disclose in his newspaper column this week supporting for-profit colleges in their fight with the Obama administration that his brother, attorney Nikesh Jindal, represented the schools' association in an earlier legal fight with the administration.

Jindal's brother works for Gibson Dunn? Where have I heard that firm's name before? http://www.wwltv.com/news/eyewitness/davidhammer/Supreme-Court-justice-has-close-ties-to-BPs-lawyers-261186651.html If only Bobby had got his quarter-baked state income tax repeal last year, perhaps his brother would have come home from the mid-Atlantic states near D.C…. which also have state income taxes. http://thelensnola.org/2013/05/21/unasked-questions-oh-brother-where-at-thou-and-are-taxes-really-why-nikesh-jindal-split/

The failed "tax swap" was a confusing point in this recent Lens article. http://thelensnola.org/2014/05/22/jindals-national-ambitions-begin-to-tell-on-his-effectiveness-some-lawmakers-contend/

If the point of the article is that Jindal is "less effective" this year because he's less engaged with the legislature, the relative progress of his agenda doesn't validate the hypothesis.
