This is NOT a Joke

Oh My.  One hopes that Mr. Jindal knows that this slogan was the butt of many many jokes the first time.
.
One doubts it, but one hopes.
.
Seriously....
.
.
For those that do not know, this was Richard Nixon's slogan in 1968.  You see, President Nixon had lost the race in 1960 (to Kennedy).  Later he lost the California Election for Governor.  After that lost, he had the famous "Checkers" speech.
.
In that speech to the press about the loss of the election for Governor, his dog Checkers was at his feet (hence the name) and he whined / bragged that the Media "Won't have Dick Nixon to kick around anymore!"
.
So when he was thinking about running for President, the quip was that he was tanned, rested and ready.  Because he had not be doing anything but thinking about running.
.
Bobby Jindal has been Governor of a state (yes, Louisiana DOES count).  So the slogan really means that he didn't do crap as Governor?  Or that Indian-Americans are alway tan? Or what?  Someone thought it was cute?
