Bobby Jindal reads Corrente?

...well, probably not. But this certainly caught my eye.

The Republican National Committee hosted a conference call on Friday morning, with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) criticizing the Supreme Court's decision and vowing to continue to oppose Obamacare.

While arguing why President Barack Obama needs to be thrown out of office in November, Jindal slipped while talking about health care reform, saying "Obamney" before quickly correcting himself:

There's only one candidate -- Gov. Romney -- who's committed that he will repeal the Obamney -- the Obamacare tax increase. He will repeal Obamacare as soon as he's elected. So to me, the choice going forward is very clear.

Everyone's attributing it to T-Paw, but I'd like to think that Lambert pushed this meme his way. After all, stranger bedfellows have... uh... bunked, or something.

Why are they attributing it to "T-Paw"?

"Obamneycare" was made popular by former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who used the expression when he was running against Romney to draw similarities between the president's health care plan and the one that Romney passed as governor of Massachusetts.

"President Obama said that he designed Obamacare after Romneycare and basically made it Obamneycare," said Pawlenty on "Fox News Sunday" in June of last year.

The plot thickens...
