Idiocy Level at Eleven
(Picture from here.)
Jesus. The idiocy level is exceptionally this week. Must be impending summer and mid-term elections.
I mean my Wall of Idiots list is huge.
I like a healthy debate. I like good arguments. I am not conservative myself by nature-- I've had too many opportunities in my life that came directly from the institutions derided by many conservatives to feel that way. But a good conservative opposition is absolutely essential to this country's well being. Any way forward out of this mess has got to be a blend of social responsibility and individual rights, intelligent investment and fiscal responsibility.
What we get is Sarah Palin: the intellectual rigor of overcooked spaghetti.
This week's crop must be led by the most egregious offenders: The Texas School Board, who voted to revise and dumb down history books.
More on it here, here, and here. Colbert was a hoot. But, of course, our greatest living journalist Jon Stewart was spot on.
Wall of Idiots
Lies about healthcare
Ocean heat increasing
Newt Gingrich and here and here
John Boehner House, R-OH
Sarah Palin. As always. And here.
