"Moderate" declares end of race

Remember Bobby Jindal? Sorry, didn't mean to, I'll keep this short. Someone ghost-wrote his thoughts on Politico wherein he expresses great sadness that there is racism race.
In 2003, I decided to run for governor of Louisiana, a state where David Duke got 44 percent of the statewide vote in 1990. The pundits said I was insane to even try. Friends worried about my mental stability and begged me not to run. I narrowly lost that first race, but I’ve won every race since then. I wish I had a nickel for every time East Coast political journalists have asked me about discrimination, and I wish I had a dime for every Louisiana voter who has broken those journalists’ ugly stereotypes.
Here’s what I’ve found in Louisiana: The voters want to know what you believe, what you stand for, and what you plan to do, not what shade your skin is.
So David Duke got 44 percent of the vote because those Louisiana voters didn't care that he was a self-avowed racist? How does that work?

He goes on to add:
By the way, I noticed recently that the president of the United States, a man with whom I disagree with on almost everything, seems to have darker skin than most Americans. He hasn’t had a problem getting elected.
Good point. So according to Bobby
  1. There is no racism anymore, because Obama got elected and he has really dark skin,
  2. He disagrees with almost everything that Obama stands for,
  3. Obama was elected without a problem
Which leads one to logically conclude that Obama was elected because people prefer his policies over the kind that Bobby proposes. 

From there on it gets worse: he talks of sin, melting pots, and salad bowls—the kind of stuff that reminds you of Alaska Palin. Read at your own peril.
