So much stupid, so little time to expose it all.
First there is the Daily Caller. The Daily Caller is a piece of stupid run by Tucker Carlson, from Fox Noise. The Daily Collection of Stupid leaves no stone unturned in its attempt to be irrelevant, stupidly funny, and masterful in its invention of new ways to be stupid every day.
You no doubt have always known that the Reactionary Right, of which the Daily Curd attempts to be the voice for, is a huge supporter of gay rights? You’re not aware of that? Well, slap yourself silly dumb person and listen up.
You see, it’s a crying shame, that compromise bill worked out by Senators Manchin and Toomey. Those darn Democrats, always seeking to betray and abuse their gay brothers and sisters.
The bill, Daily Crap points out, will discriminate against gay gun owners. See if you can figure out why?
Figured it out yet?
Well, you see, in states that don’t recognize gay marriage, said gay gun owner will be forced to submit his or her partner to a background check before selling them or giving them a gun for Christmas. That’s because the “family exception” to the proposed new law would not be recognized in non-same-sex marriage recognizing states.
Yes, indeed. I kid you not as they say.
I guess they forgot the provision about neighbor-to-neighbor transfers. I mean what can be more neighborly than actually living in the same house? Seems about as friendly as neighbors can get doncha think?
I gave you the link, lest you think I was pulling your leg, or attempting a frontal lobotomy with a rusty butter knife.
Next on our hit parade of stupid is the ever growing legend of another of those Texas wonders, Steve Stockman.
You remember Steve right? The Texan Representative who decided it was a great idea to invite Ted Nugent, aging rocker with like two old hits over 30 years old, who loves guns more than he loves his kids, and all around crazy conspiracy-laden anti-Obama screamer, to the State of the Union speech? THAT Steve Stockman?
Well this is his new way of attracting the marvelous people who contribute to his campaign to continue being a public nuisance.
This is his newly designed bumper sticker which you can attach to the bumper of your car, horse, or forehead, proclaiming you too are stupid as hell.
Is there anything left to say here? Stockman is offensive on just about all of Dante’s levels of hell.
But my favorite this week? Oh that was easy. You probably heard about the kerfuffle about Melissa Harris Perry’s promo for her show on MSNBC? Where she talks about the education of our children and suggests that children just don’t belong to their parents, but in fact belong to the entire community?
The Really Really Ridiculous Right started fainting and running for smelling salts on that one. One heard the immediate refrain, “COMMUNISM” expounded by the likes of Rush, the Drudge, Daily Caller, and Newsbusters.
Newsbusters said this: “. . .the notion of collective responsibility for children was a philosophy that undergirded the Cultural Revolution in Communist China under Chairman Mao. I bring that up because, as you may recall, another Harris-Perry “Lean Forward” spot contains a reference to a “great leap forward,” which calls to mind the disastrous agricultural reform plan which starved millions of Chinese to death in the 1950s.”
Sarah, “HEY, remember me?” Palin tweeted: Apparently MSNBC doesn’t think your children belong to you. Unflippingbelievable.
Rush ME MORE DRUGS Limbaugh said: So how does this manifest itself? So you need your yard mowed, what do you do?” he continued. “You go knock on the door down the street — your kid that you don’t own. I do today. For the next hour, your kid is going to mow my yard. And then after that, my trash needs taking out and after that I need somebody to go to the grocery store for me and my kid’s tied up, so I’m claiming your kid. How does this work?”
From the Lonely Conservative (who decries a new promo declaring that people have basic human rights to education, food, housing and so forth): Maybe in her next promo she can just come out and quote directly from the Communist Manifesto.
Okay folks, settle down. Let’s recall a few things. There is a rather famous saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.” That is in fact the title of one of Hillary Clinton’s books. Let’s not forget that we all pay property taxes wherever we live, and part of that money goes directly to support local school systems. Guess what? Those who are not parents pay them as well, on the theory that EVERYONE has a stake in children being educated.
Has everyone on the Right forgotten the “good old days”? You remember when extended families lived together and everyone thought that all children were so much better off having more people busy raising them? Remember the Waltons? Remember when we were children and the teacher as “loco parentis” was considered “always right” if we were disciplined? Remember when any neighbor had a perfect right to correct your behavior if not physically, at least verbally?
Do we not all have a stake in the future of our next generation of teachers, lawyers, doctors, soldiers, and seamstresses? These are the folks who will govern the country when we are using our walkers in the hallways of senior facilities.
I mean how stupid can you be to see something sinister in what Ms Harris-Perry said? How much must you twist and distort it to make it look dangerous and “otherly”?
Do you not see that it is exactly this utterly over-the-top reaction to something so innocent and benign and TRUE, that makes even the fairly non-interested middle of America think the far Right has more than a few screws loose? The GOP and it’s cadre of stupid are swirling into the sinkhole of oblivion and pretty much nobody cares.

Whenever I think they couldn’t possibly get more certifiably insane, they prove me wrong.
lol…you mean I still manage to shock someone? Wow, I would have not thought it possible any more. That is good news! !END
Been too busy to tune into any noise from either dimension. It’s actually a relief.
It’s good to do that from time to time. The rust builds up otherwise and clogs your sinuses. lol !END
We seem to be on the same wave length regarding “stupid” Sherry. It has obviously been sending out strong vibrations these last few days/weeks/months. 🙂
I realized that I could post a weekly “stupid list” and probably have too many examples to fit into a single post. It’s extraordinary how many of these nuts have floated into “public service.” !END
There’s a certain perverse logic to the gay gun family exemption matter that I find delightful. You think they dream this shit up when they’re stoned?
I’m looking forward to the Jell-o post, myself 😉
hehehe, okay. !END

So, what do you think: village idiots, to go with the rest of us folks in the village just trying to raise the kids??
I guess you can never have too many idiots. They help to define normal as you know. !END

OH DEAR GOD. When will the sane Texans get sick of it all and just move? Just ghastly. This is the way the Rs are working to be more “inclusive” — they’ll soon be including the rest of the lunatic in their party.
I mean this is better than watching the three stooges. One wonders however at just what the tipping point is–who will be the last idiot before the country is declared insane and voted off the planet? lol !END
In Indiana they sell six-packs of Stupid. They import it from North Dakota. True. You cannot make this stuff up.
