Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
Kenneth Jindal  —  Close your eyes and think of Kenneth from 30 Rock.  I can barely count the number of emails making that observation.  I'm told Olbermann's open mic got it right: Jindal's entrance reminded one of Mr Burns gamboling toward a table of ointments.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
JINDAL BLOGGING  —  “Pre-existing condition”?  Is it just me or is this absolutely cringeworthy?  I mean, I really don't like Jindal.  But this is awful.  —  10:26 PM ... Is he going to talk about his work as an exorcist?  —  10:28 PM ... Katrina as metaphor for opposing the Stimulus Bill.

Jamison Foser / Media Matters for America:
Will media repeat Jindal's false attack on Obama, or correct it?  —  According to Ben Smith, Bobby Jindal will accuse Obama of pessimism tonight, saying: … Smith didn't mention this, but Jindal's claim is false.  Obama didn't say “we may not be able to reverse” the crisis …

Not a War President  —  What can we learn from the few sentences President Obama devoted to foreign policy in his speech to Congress tonight?  —  The main lesson is how very few the sentences were.  Yes, this was a speech focused on the economy.  But it was also Obama's first address to Congress …
