Even the caterpillar-brains over at Fox News got in on the action:

Who wants to place bets on whether we don’t hear a peep from Schoolmarm Jindal in the next few weeks?

Update: Paul Krugman wins for the prize for my favorite quote on Jindal’s speech (re: his absurd mocking of volcano monitoring):
