Jindal Prepares to Pull a Partial Scott Walker

Louisiana may not accept all of the stimulus money allotted to it. 

(Ray Nagin says he'll take every last scrap of slop, however - whatever the state doesn't take.)

The difference between Jindal's bold talk and Milwaukee County Exec. Scott Walker's tough talk last month is that Jindal is dealing with a much more conservative - and probably receptive - electorate.

Jindal also has a national audience to keep in mind.  One that would also be more empathetic to such a decision than the Milwaukee County electorate.
