Dumbass Quote of the Day

Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes from quite possibly the biggest dumbass in Congress, even with the competition from Steve King, Allen West and Michele Bachmann, and that is Louis Gohmert of Texas. He participated in a conference call for Rick Scarborough’s 40 Days to Save America and unleashed this bit of stupid:

Dumbass Quote of the Day

Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes from W.F. Price, writing at something called The Spearhead about what he calls the “inherent conflict between atheism and feminism.” In explaining why there are more more male atheists in our communities than female ones, he proposes that it’s because women are just so damn irrational:

Dumbass Quote of the Day

At the Democratic National Convention, John Kerry fired off one of the best one-liners of the entire event, saying, “Folks, Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska. Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching ‘Rocky IV.’” It was a good line, and accurate on both counts. That prompted this absurd response from the Divine Miss Palin:

Dumbass Quote of the Day

Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes from Kevin Swanson, a Colorado pastor who hosts Generations Radio, and Les Riley, leader of the group that tried — and failed — to pass the personhood amendment in Mississippi. Right Wing Watch notes that Riley is a member of Christian Exodus, a group that wants to take over South Carolina, secede from the union and establish a Christian country. They had this exchange on Swanson’s radio show:

Dumbass Quote of the Day

Today’s dumbass quote of the day comes from world class dumbass Victoria Jackson:

Suddenly, the gym CNN is blasting a story of how a homosexual man is helping other homosexuals adopt children. He speaks about the personal, passionate sacrifice of his time for this cause as if he were Mother Theresa. I’m appalled. Homosexuals-adopting-children is child abuse. No, it’s pedophilia and sexual molestation. Teaching a young mind, a clean slate, an innocent soul that homosexuality is a natural, normal and moral lifestyle is evil. How is gay adoption different from the recently jailed Penn State Jerry Sandusky, child molester case?

Dumbass Quote of the Day

I haven’t done a dumbass quote of the day in a while, but this certainly qualifies. It’s from lunatic Rep. Allen West:

During a Sunday rally with constituents in a newly drawn district he wants to represent, West accused President Barack Obama of wanting to enslave the American public.

“He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American,” West said, according to a WPTV report. “He’d rather you be his slave.”

Yeah, that’s a comparison a black man should be making about another black man.

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Antonio McElroy, speaking about Justin Griffith and Rock Beyond Belief:

“All the chaplains on post are under orders not to speak about the atheist festival. But off the record… Sgt. Griffith is doing the work of Satan himself.“

Damn it, they’re on to us! Satan would have been there himself that day, but the rain tends to put the flames out.

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Robert George and O. Carter Snead, in a Wall Street Journal editorial on the whole Komen – Planned Parenthood controversy:

The Susan G. Komen Foundation, an organization dedicated since 1982 to fighting, and one day curing, breast cancer, decided to extricate itself from the culture wars by discontinuing grants to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest provider of abortions.

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Rick Perry, during his speech withdrawing from the presidential race:

“I began this race with a sense of calling — I felt led into the arena to fight for the future of this country. I feel no different than I did then, knowing the calling never represents a particular outcome, but a journey that tests one’s faith and character.”

Oh, nonsense. You began the race because you thought you had a chance to win. But the fact that you’re a weapons-grade moron quickly became apparent even to Republican voters, who tend to actually like garden-variety morons. That wasn’t God calling you, it was your ego.

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Rick Perry:

“Every barrel of oil that comes out of those sands in Canada is a barrel of oil that we don’t have to buy from a foreign source,” Mr. Perry said in Clarinda, earning a loud round of enthusiastic applause.

Because Canada is another country, but they look like us and sound like us so they’re not really “foreign.”

Robert O’Brien Nominee: Lou Engle

From lunatic Lou Engle of The Call:

Can a homosexual have civil rights in America? They might. But it is not their right given by God. Their right is to repent and stand until Jesus delivers, and then the Church must go into war for them and get them free. Brothers and sisters, we made it two spheres: government has a sphere and God has a sphere. That’s what they did in Hitler’s day, they voted for money in economic crisis and they sacrificed the sanctity of life of the Jews. We do the same thing in America.

*scratching head*

Robert O’Brien Nominee: Michael Bresciani

From wingnut Michael Bresciani:

In our world most of those spreading the gay lie are liberals, activists, spineless academicians, Hollywood sellouts, and now we can throw in a president and a large contingent of fully duped politicians…There is little doubt that the entire gay and lesbian community is guided by a powerful demon spirit who is subordinate to Satan.

It’s much funnier if you read it in the Church Lady voice.
