A take on the hostile takeover

We should go easy on Bobby Jindal saying the American people are ready for "a hostile takeover" of Washington. 

I don't think he meant it in a revolutionary, treasonous sense. (Even if he did, such rhetoric is all talk.) I'm more inclined to believe he meant "hostile takeover" in the predatory-capitalist sense, a more tangible and disturbing goal. That jibes more with Jindal's corporate mentality and singleminded desire to be president of these United States. Why would he want to overthrow the very system he wants to helm so very badly?

Let's not despise Jindal for a flawed interpretation of his remarks when there are so many other reasons to despise him.
