Via Brother Benen, here’s a hilarious (or horrifying, depending on how you look at it) Public Policy Polling discovery from the Gret Stet of Looisiana:

He may have been 3.5 years away from the White House when the storm hit, but slightly more Republicans in the state blame Barack Obama for the handling of Hurricane Katrina (29%) than do George W. Bush (28%). 44% don’t have an opinion either way.

In a measurement of more recent political developments, the current approval/disapproval ratio for Gov. Bobby “Smartest Guy In the Room” Jindal among his fellow Louisiana Republicans is 43/42. Overall, Bobby’s at 28/59. Who looks “stupid” now?
