Reaction against political correctness is one thing, but a racist disregard of the dignity of a human being is quite another. In the last couple of days, some conservatives have been rallying around Bobby Jindal and his performance on Tuesday, but I am stunned about what some conservatives are saying - even if joking - about him.

Ann Coulter:
Even Gov. Bobby Jindal, whom I suppose I should note was the first Indian-American to give the Republican response to a president's speech, began with an encomium to the first black president. (Wasn't Bobby great in "Slumdog Millionaire"?)
RNC Chair Michael Steele:

I love it. (inaudible) ... some slum love out to my buddy. Gov. Bobby Jindal is doing a friggin' awesome job in his state. He's really turned around on some core principles — like hey, government ought not be corrupt. The good stuff ... the easy stuff.

With friends like these ...
