Changing Bobby Jindal

Notice anything strange about the official headshot of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal? Yeah. Weird.

Now, this could be the work of an overzealous staffer, or something even more innocuous. But, if this 'white-washing' is and intentional act, I must admit that I am perplexed at the reasoning.

One of the loudest criticisms of the Republican party is that it is unfriendly to traditionally underrepresented groups (minorities). If the GOP wants to appear more accessible to people of color -- you know, that whole 'big tent' thingie -- why would anyone want to change Governor Jindal's appearance so that he looks less... err... brown?
