How awesome is Bobby Jindal?

Let me count the ways: 718. As in Louisiana Senate Bill 718.

More than 200 people in state boards and commissions resigned before they had to comply with the new law, requiring these people to release information about income and business dealings.

The hardest hit board in the state? The ethics commission. 11 people from the 12-member-board resigned.

To be fair, this wasn't a Bobby Jindal bill, he just signed it. It was introduced by Sen. Danny Martiny (a republican from Kenner, imagine that). Creating an environment where the state can finally get the muck-raking stench of Huey P. Long out of Louisiana politics -- for that I credit Jindal.
