It seems simply unbelievable: that a group of disconnected schizoids, psychotics, and borderline personality disorders are elected, let alone listened to. And yet here we are, stuck with the biggest boobs in the political world, morons who never fact-check the noise they blurt out at press releases.
And so to show their alleged ‘diversity’, these pusillanimous political pipsqueaks try to bring in some token black, probably to offset the idea that the rethuglickans are an old white boys club, and failing miserably.
In 2012, it was Herman Cain. In my book, if you’re a tea(bag) party member, you’re on auto-moron. (Though his call for a 3rd party in US politics is actually a strong point.)
And now we have…drum roll please…Ben Carson!
He’s a neurosurgeon who believes that evolution is a ‘tool of the adversary’ and that the big bang theory is a fable. WTF is that? How can someone smart enough to become a neurosurgeon be that fucking stupid? Better yet, the General Surgeon Idiot has proclaimed this:
In the speech -- given at Andrews University, a school with ties to Carson's Seventh-day Adventist faith -- the neurosurgeon shot down claim that aliens had built the pyramids. But he also disagreed with the archaeological consensus that the pyramids were constructed as tombs for the pharaohs.
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” Carson said. “Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don’t think it’d just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain.”
In the video surfaced by Buzzfeed Wednesday, Carson goes on to lay out his argument that the pyramids were constructed for grain storage.
So regardless of all the actual evidence that says otherwise, he builds what is risibly called a ‘theory’ based on his own person preferences rather than any reality whatsoever. What a fucking surprise.
And of course, he tries to be magnanimous about this nonsense:
Ben Carson is standing by his theory that the Egyptian pyramid theory -- that the pyramids were built by the biblical figure Joseph to store grain -- which has come under scrutiny since Buzzfeed surfaced a 1998 video of Carson referencing it.
"Some people believe in the Bible, like I do, and don't find that to be silly at all, and believe that God created the Earth and don't find that to be silly at all." Carson told reporters in Miami during a stop on his book tour. "The secular progressives try to ridicule it any time it comes up and they're welcome to do that."
A book tour?!?! Seriously? What is wrong with the American public that they even pay to read crap written by complete idiots? Television has turned the majority of them into uninformed drooling jukes and kalikaks, incapable of a rational or original thought whatsoever.
Some people are not only silly, most of them are just stupid. Adjectives for this are beginning to fail me.
As a friend once told me, ‘just because you’re smart, doesn’t mean you’re not stupid’. At this point, I wonder if Carson paid extra money for his degree, or maybe he learned neurosurgery at Wal-Mart.
It’s high time we set a higher bar for US politicians. Look, this guy has a degree, and he’s STILL an idiot.
Till the next post then.
