Talk to me like an adult, please

I could stand about three minutes of Bobby Jindal's cloyingly, annoyingly condescending delivery. Nate Silver says it best:
If it sounds like Jindal is targeting his speech to a room full of fourth graders, that's because he is. They might be the next people to actually vote for Republicans again.
My friend capper thinks he came across like a televangelist flogging snake oil. Exactly like that also. None of which is surprising, issuing as it was from a governor who favors creationist "science" standards.

eta: And who could blame him?
