Another Few Whacks from the Stupid Stick

From2Millionth Web Log

Good grief–when an innocuous message to stay in school and keep up with your studies is twisted into the mother of all pretzels, maybe it’s time to ask what the hell the likes of theJim Greers of the world are thinking.

And this is just the latest in a long march of dumb — the birthers, the deathers, the American Taliban-ers, the show us your gun-ers..not even counting true nuts like Michele Bachmann orPat “My Second Childhood is as a member of the Hitler Youth” Buchanan.

Neither did I mentionWhat’s the Matter With Kansas redux…but what I WILL note, and I’ve been saying this more and more, is that it’sno longer a left versus right political conflict in this country…it’s the adults versus idiot brats with the mental age of a nine year old…a nine year old with issues.

  1. I’m afraid the whacko front is so afraid of anything happening, that Obama breathing is an affront.
    Looking back, this was at least building under cries referencing Clinton of “He’s NOT MY president.” Definitely built under the steamroller Bush years. But now, evil has shown its true form to the point that even presidential candidate McCain seemed rather taken back by the crazies.
    BTW – oddly enough, while the Oklahoma legislators pull some of the dumbest stunts in education, The University of Oklahoma is home to a showcase collection of Darwin memorabilia. Go figure!

  2. I’ve been thinking lately about how “the American Dream,” regardless of the complicated reality, was in essence hoping to make a better life for yourself and your family. More and more these days, though, it seems as if it’s an effort to drag down as many people as possible to as close to a subsistence existence as they can…

  3. I never noticed the other card the guy in the picture is holding; “find x” and “here it is” – as if understanding something about geometry and being able to do a little arithmetic is a bad thing.

  4. I live in southeast Missouri, the sweaty taint of the Bible belt, and I’m telling all you good progressives out there that the stupid is more infectious than swine flu. People around here are drooling mouth-breathers who practically masturbate with their guns, listen to all four hours each of Rush and Hannity and only watch Faux News–that is, unless there’s a professional wrestling match on. There is no hope whatsoever of getting these people to change their monkey-sized brains. They are rooted in cement-like certainty that JEE-zuz is coming any day now, and when he does, he’ll be armed to the teeth, ready to wipe out…well, everyone except them. Many of these troglodytes call themselves Christians, but their one characteristic quality is the white-hot intensity of their hatred of anyone and everything “different.” I believe more strongly than ever that this nation is inevitably headed for a split. Blue-state secession? Where can I sign the petition?

  5. This one made me LOL this morning – sums up my position completely:
    Do you folks realize how hard it is to write satire about people that are clinically stupid? Because, let’s face it, about 25 percent of the U.S. are blindingly dumb. They scream for government to get out of Medicaid. They’ll claim America has the best health care system in the world. They’ll rail against taxes when the taxes they currently pay are near historic lows. These stupid people are in most need of help, and are fighting it every step of the way.

  6. You know, their frothing bothers me, but not as much as the local school districts that are LISTENING to them. Our school district here in Albq. bowed to the absolutely fucking insane and issued a statement that students would not be required to listen to the President. Can you imagine what would have happened if the very same thing occurred during the Bush presidency? The wingnut scree would be heard in outer space.
