Governor Jindal apparently dislikes Secretary Kerry’s transportation choices:
Jindal says he’d rather John Kerry be “riding a girly bike or windsurfing” than be on the job screwing up foreign policy.

Yes we have another expression of that tired juvenile conservative trope that liberal men are wimp-metrosexuals* who fail to live out our apparently God-given gender roles.
There is nothing wrong with being a wimp (I happen to be one)Â or with being a metrosexual. But it’s a little weird here. Once you’re a highly-decorated war hero who’s chased down and killed a rocket-launcher-wielding soldier of the Viet Cong, you’re kindof entitled to ride whatever bike you want, girly- or otherwise, without fear of being macho-splained by Bobby Jindal. (Below the fold is the citation for Kerry’s Silver Star.)
