Um. I Remember that Book, and the Movie with Young Linda Blair . . .

And there is the reason I am hoping McCain picks Jindal for his running mate:

Is Bobby Jindal -- Who May Be On McCain's Veep Shortlist -- An Exorcist?
By Eric Kleefeld and Kate Klonick - June 11, 2008, 4:42PM

Bobby Jindal, the 36-year old governor of Louisiana, is being taken seriously by the national press as a candidate on the shortlist to be John McCain's Vice President. No one doubts that he's a political prodigy -- his impressive resume includes stints as president of the state university system, a Congressman and now governor.
But one of Jindal's job titles hasn't gotten much attention -- and it just might prompt a few questions if his Veep candidacy gains steam: Exorcist.
As others noted during his 2003 and 2007 gubernatorial campaigns (see update), in an essay Jindal wrote in 1994 for the New Oxford Review, a serious right-wing Catholic journal, Jindal narrated a bizarre story of a personal encounter with a demon, in which he participated in an exorcism with a group of college friends. And not only did they cast out the supernatural spirit that had possessed his friend, Jindal wrote that he believes that their ritual may well have cured her cancer.

Jindal Is Delusional; Thinks he is an Exorcist

Now even if I am not really big on Religion as an institution (I suspect all religions have way less to do with God than they do with human greed and manipulative ambitions.) However, I am not necessarily against religion the way some people are. I say, let people believe what ever stupid stuff they wanna, be it Magic Sky Men, or Magic Pasta Monsters.

But there is a point where people of compassion, and intellect, and reasoning skills MUST put the compassion aside and declare, when faced with someone clearly self-delusional, that:

"That is some crazy shit you believe there. I mean you must be crazy as a loon on crack to believe that shit."

So ladies and gents, I publicly and with out the slightest reservation declare that

Bobby Jindal is a crazy as a loon on crack.
