Stupid is as Stupid Does

Update:

Rove's petri dish. Be sure to watch it:

"60 Minutes" preparing report on Siegelman case:

"TUSCALOOSA | I'm getting reports from all over that CBS's '60 Minutes' is gathering information in Alabama about the case of incarcerated former Gov. Don Siegelman.

First I got an email from a friend who forwarded another email saying that a women who works for the program had contacted the Alabama Department of Archives and History 'in an effort to locate the negative television ads that [former lieutenant governor] Steve Windom ran against Siegelman in 2002.'"

Willie for President.

Willie Nelson: Impeach Bush, "Throw The Bastards Out":

"'If you break the law, you have to pay for it,' American icon tells Alex Jones Show"
_______

He's Nineteen! duh-nah-nah-nah.

I'm still amazed that 19% that still dig this moron.

Bush at 19% approval:

"Among all Americans, 19% approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president and 77% disapprove. When it comes to Bush's handling of the economy, 14% approve and 79% disapprove."
_______

Speaking of dumb... Read a freakin' book without pictures already.

The Dumbing Of America :

"'The mind of this country, taught to aim at low objects, eats upon itself.' Ralph Waldo Emerson offered that observation in 1837, but his words echo with painful prescience in today's very different United States. Americans are in serious intellectual trouble -- in danger of losing our hard-won cultural capital to a virulent mixture of anti-intellectualism, anti-rationalism and low expectations."
______

The dumbest of the dumb. The 19 percenters.

Though applying 'intellectuals" to 'Right Wing' is a huge oxymoron.

Author: Right wing intellectuals make wishful thinking sound rational:

"'It's been forgotten now in the mythology of World War II that even when the Nazis invaded Poland and attacked England, overwhelming majority of Americans were opposed to American involvement in the war,' she said. 'The reason they came around is not just Pearl Harbor. Franklin D. Roosevelt spent several years trying to educate a resistant public about the stake that America had in the future of Europe. The renewal of the draft in 1941, six months before Pearl Harbor, in the summer of 1941, passed by one vote. Imagine what would have happened if the Army had been disbanded, if FDR had not made all those educational efforts, where we would have been six months later when Pearl Harbor was attacked.'"
_______

What a cruel, cruel world we live in.

Fontana man robbed of tacos at gunpoint:

"A hunger for carnitas nearly led to some carnage after a Fontana man was robbed of a bag of tacos at gunpoint.

Police Sergeant Jeff Decker says the 35-year-old victim had just bought about $20 in tacos from a street-corner stand Sunday night and was bicycling home when the suspect confronted him and said 'Give me your tacos.'

Decker says the suspect grabbed the bag of food, punched the victim in the face and began to flee.

When the victim demanded his tacos back, the suspect pointed what appeared to be a handgun at the man and threatened to kill him before running away."

Goddamn Bush!

Now, to explain his inaction in Darfur, he said that "outside forces tend to divide people"... Umm... Can you say Iraq?!

This guy's such an idiot, he doesn't even get the irony...

Even better, his response in Africa when asked about the excitement for Obama. "People were excited for me" wah-wah-wah-wah.

What an infantile douche.

Jez said...

It's all about him, isn't it?

As for the taco story, when my buddy says, "Man, I would kill for a bag of tacos right now," I will never look at him the same.

Petulant Asshole in Chief.

I'm thinking about having Brinks take to me to Taco Bell now. They'll pry my chalupa from my cold dead hand, by god.

Jez said...

PLEASE don't tell me that you live in California and go to Taco Bell. There's gotta be TONS of good taquerias out there where you can get a bottle of Mexican Coke, and a HUGE cabeza burrito for like $6.

JPW said...

If I want something exotically middle america then I might run to the border but otherwise, yes, I'm all about the local Mexican fare. Gordo Y Burrito being one of my favorites.

Damn, now I'm hungry for some Mexican grub. Gotta go call Brinks.

I was once mugged for the barbeque I was takin' out of a barbeque joint in Oakland...

Jez said...

Davy -

I'm proud o' ya.

JPW said...

Well, of course, I can understand being mugged for BBQ. But tacos?

Oh, and I apologize for taking your BBQ, Davy. I was really hungry that night.
