Conservatism: Where The Stupid Rules, Part II


We continue with Part II of yesterday's post, "Conservatism: Where The Stupid Rules," with this story from aatp.org...

"Governor Bobby ‘Party of Stupid’ Jindal Says Duck Dynasty Star Would Be Good Running Mate."

-1x-1

"Think of the worst Republican joke ticket that you can imagine that has a chance of winding up in the primary. It probably looks something like Ted Cruz/Sarah Palin, right? Regardless what form it took, would you ever consider Willie Robertson, from Duck Dynasty? Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal would.

"Jindal is still considering whether he wants to dive in. During an appearance at a Good Friday prayer breakfast in Ceder Rapids, Iowa, Jindal was asked about picking Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson as his VP.


"And they say there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

"Jindal told the reporters, 'As a running mate? Sure, but as vice president—I assume that’s what you’re asking—not the other way around,' and 'He’s a great guy, I think he’d be a great running mate. It’d be a huge pay cut for him, so I’m not sure he’d be willing to do it.'


"It would be a huge pay cut, as the citizens of Louisiana well know..."

Of course, we all know someone had something to say once about Conservative stupidity...



...but my God, sometimes it seems like they ARE all stupid.

"When Chris Matthews Realized His Right-Wing Guest Had No Idea Who Neville Chamberlain Actually Was."

94463964
From left to right: Neville Chamberlain, a translator, and Barack Obama's best friend (Hitler) in 1938.
"When a politician negotiates or suggests negotiating with a former enemy state, other politicians compare the first one to British prime minister Neville Chamberlain and the negotiations to Chamberlain's 'appeasement' of Hitler in the 1930s. That's just the way things work. It took just hours, in fact, for Illinois senator Mark Kirk to dust off the ol' Hitler playbook on Thursday in regards to the Obama administration's announcement of progress in negotiations with Iran.

"It was so predictable that someone would use the Hitler analogy that Kirk's comments are barely news, but they do present the opportunity to remember one of the greatest moments in comeuppance history. In 2008, Hardball host Chris Matthews realized that a right-wing guest named Kevin James—who'd come on the program to discuss candidate Obama's alleged similarities to Chamberlain in regards to, again, Iran—did not seem to actually have any idea who Chamberlain was. Matthews exposed James for three grisly minutes.

"(The transcript is here.)..."

But the Conservatives running for office are smarter than the Conservative Sheeplets, you say...



...and we say you're probably right...



...but some of them are really, really dumb...



...AND they have some special plans, just for you...



...even if those special plans kill you.


Some think Conservative stupidity may be genetic...



...and some think Conservative stupidity is an acquired trait...



...while others think that their stupidity is just a ploy...



...because they don't want you to examine what they've done to us after they win their elections.



So do you have a problem with that?



********************

The problem with Conservative stupidity is that it's catching.

No one reads anymore, and that's the way that the Cons like it.

No one tries to understand how Conservatism has brought us to the state we're in, and the Cons like that even more.

No one tells us why Conservative leaders like their followers to be stupid, because that would be telling.

And few realize that Conservatism is the vast, rightwing conspiracy that Hillary Clinton warned us about so many years ago.

Isn't it way past time that we criminalized Conservatism?
