Conservative Smackdown of the Day: 8-18-2011

The stupid! It buuuurrrnnnnssss!

Awarded to Rick “I really am dumber than Bush” Perry for saying the following:

“You know, it’s a theory that’s out there,” Perry replied. “It’s got some gaps in it. In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution in our schools. Because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.”

“Because I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right”?! What the hell is THAT supposed to mean? One of them is provably true and you want our children taught the provably false alternatives?! Maybe we should teach Astrology alongside Astronomy because, you know, they’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.

How about Chemistry and Alchemy? Geography and the Flat Earth Theory? The  Heliocentric model and the Geocentric model? Medicine and leeches?

And another thing, in Texas, you teach BOTH? Really? In public schools? Funny, last time I looked, Mr. “I love America like my prom date” Perry, that was ILLEGAL under this funny little document I can guarantee you’ve never read, much less understood. I’ve seen your grades, buddy and you ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed. The Constitution is WAAAAAY over that dye job of yours.

Rick Perry,  for putting your willful ignorance on display for the world to see and laugh at, Congratulations! You’re an official moron!!

How about we teach Islam in Sunday School as well and let the kids decide?
