Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) suggested on Saturday that Americans were so miffed with Washington they were starting to consider another revolution to reclaim control of the nation.
"I can sense right now a rebellion brewing among these United States," Jindal said, "where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American dream for our children and grandchildren."
