Ever the able salesman, the Louisiana governor is speaking bluntly about why he's hired a ghostwriter for the 2010 political memoir. He told the New Orleans Times Picayune it's 'cause he's, you know, lazy:
"This isn't something that will take a lot of my time, " he said...
"One of the reasons I'm doing this with a co-author is to make sure there's somebody else doing a lot of the heavy lifting, " Jindal said.
That "heavy lifting" will presumably include the book's "thoughts on a range of policy issues," which Jindal personally can only articulate up to a 3rd grade level.
