NEW ORLEANS -- Apparently it’s now OK for Republicans to joke
about the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) recent scandal.
Speaking to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference on Friday, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal became the first speaker to mention the RNC’s $2,000 expenditure at a risqué nightclub.
"A word of warning to RNC staffers: You may want to avoid Bourbon Street,” Jindal said. “Just some advice.”
Jindal, making one of his first big national appearances since a widely panned response to President Obama in February 2009, also said he has no presidential aspirations.
He began the speech by answering the question he knew he would get asked.
"I am not running for President of the United States of America," he said. "I've got the job I want."
