Is Jindal Believable?

Observers–I almost said “connoisseurs,” but that implies a sense of enjoyment probably not relevant here–of Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal are aware that he’s reinvented himself a time or three and certainly shown the willingness to flip and flop. So it’s interesting that he’s already tweaking the name of his PAC, per this report from Politico‘s Katie Glueck:

The Louisiana Republican governor will change the name of his federal political action committee, currently called Stand Up to Washington, to match that of a super PAC that’s already in place to back his potential 2016 run. Both entities will soon be called Believe Again, according to an adviser.

Okay. I suppose this is congruent with Bobby’s decision to identify himself with the Christian Right. But when you are as openly calculating about it all as Jindal is, I’m not sure “believe” is the best word to use. But I guess “Watch This!” is a dubious slogan.
