Default Conservatives say stupid shit

For anyone who may have said something stupid be they a news radio, fox news or political personality.


I was listening to Neil Bortz this morning and he goes on and on about how stupid people go on to become teachers. He talked about how alot of teachers were in the bottom half of their graduating class. His answer, pull your kids out of public schools and put them in private schools.

:sigh:

Cuz evidently, private schools don't have teachers.

I'm pretty sure that all professions graduate around 50% of their students in the bottom half of their graduating classes.

What happened to not leaving any children behind? I think we should fire any teacher who does not have a solid majority of students in the top 50%.

That'll fix it.

Stupidest thing I heard today was Republican Senator Scott Brown, saying "Thank God" Elizabeth Warren kept her clothes on during college, after she zinged him good about his Cosmo layout. A gentleman would have laughed and acknowledged he got straight out pwned but nope he had to be a prick.

Hadn't heard about that shit until reading your post! Apparently he made the comment to a couple of dipshit DJs and their idiot audience yesterday morning. If anything, the "analysis" he provided after the comment was even stupider:

Quote:
"You know what, listen: Bottom line is, you know, I didnít go to Harvard, you know,"
:laugh:

Neither did Warren, but hey, never let facts stand in the way of some catchy anti-intellectual-elite pandering.

Quote:
"I went to the school of hard knocks, and I did whatever I had to do to pay for school"
:laugh:

Tufts University and Boston College Law School will be happy as pigs in shit to know that such a distinguished alumnus considers them "the school[s] of hard knocks." Also, I wonder whether Sen. Brown ever sucked dick for tuition money, seeing as how he did whatever he had to do in order to finance his sojourn through the school of hard knocks.

The funniest part about this idiocy is the timing. Warren made her comment on Tuesday during a debate. Brown horked up his retort two days later during a radio interview. Here's an instance of slow-wittedness being an asset. Brown obviously has no impulse control regarding what he says. Had the "Thank God" comment occurred to him on the spot during the debate, he would have launched it from his shitter right then and there. That might have generated a devastating comeback from Warren, and maybe a lot more ugly political fallout. (Or maybe not. Brown's target audience no doubt loves that sort of shit.)

LOL take the poll on the webpage. Right now it's sitting at 63% "Other". I suspect folks other than the target audience -- um, like me -- are filling out the poll and noticing that "Kicking Dick Cheney in his saggy nuts" is not a formal option.

Because all women are one women, goddammit! [insert crying bald eagle photo here]

The 63% "other" vote might also have something to do with the fact that the poll lacks an express Birfer Option. WTF kind of values voter poll lacks an express Birfer Option ffs?!

Virginia Foxx Republican of N.C., ""I also would like to point out that there was a bill -- the hate crimes bill that's called the Matthew Shepard bill is named after a very unfortunate incident that happened where a young man was killed, but we know that that young man was killed in the commitment of a robbery. It wasn't because he was gay. "
In front of his mom, on the floor of the House of Representatives.
