🗣 Talking Stupid

Stupid things are said by people from every walk of life. Sometimes it’s just average people saying stupid things. Other times its stupid people saying really stupid things.

Everyone says something stupid from time to time. We’ve all had the moment when words have barely left our lips when we realize they’re stupid and we want them back.

When politicians say stupid things, or stupid politicians say really stupid things, they get attention. Not always the attention they would have chosen.

Liberal stupidity doesn’t get quite the attention, or disdain as their stupid counterparts on the right. That’s because the media doesn’t care about stupid, only about ideology.

The media picked sides a long time ago, stupidly, and so they flood print, airwaves and twitter “reporting” the stupid things that politicians on the right say while ignoring the stupidity on the left. There are more examples of that than I have time to post.

The liberal media tribe is supremely disloyal to their profession. They disrespect people that believe they dispense information. Considering the lack of respect most people now have for them and their profession it was a stupid thing to do.

Media types say some really stupid things. Twitter allows them, as well as POTUS, to show the world that they are not nearly as smart as they think they are. Hello Jim Acosta!

Nancy Pelosi  is infamous for her stupid remark about Obamacare:

”We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

Over the years Pelosi has said a lot of stupid things. The example above heads the list and is the most quoted.Image result for saying stupid things images

The problem with the things Pelosi says is that she often speaks babble. Intentionally I think. You can’t argue with babble.

Harry Reid was also known for saying stupid things and for lying. The same media that finds fault with every word from Trump and his family seemed to have few problems with this corrupt little man. He said a lot of stupid things. He got away with it.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been saying stupid things for a long time.

“The shouting, the overrunning of the Capitol, the sneaking in of Tea Party participants into the basement of the Capitol, the name-calling, the spitting, all of that…. The Tea Party emerges as not only outrageous, but they have turned up the volume in ways that even Code Pink have not been able to do. Morning Joe (31 March 2010)”

Recently on the Spew View she came up with this nonsense:

Moron Alert: Maxine Waters Doesn’t Believe Leaks Jeopardize National Security 

Perpetually offended Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) appeared on The View yesterday and opined on a number of topics (including a possible 2020 Presidential run), but stubbornly refused to admit there could possibly be any negative consequences arising from the steady stream of leaks, including transcripts of phone calls President Trump had with other heads of state.

We’ve heard a lot of stupid things from this woman. Most of what she says is stupid and dishonest. But she’s black and female and she’s from California. Her lies, innuendo , ignorance and stupidity are fine with her constituents. Guess Californians like their representatives that way.

Hillary has said more than her share of stupid things. During the campaign I thought her  phrase “basket of deplorables,” was one of the worst.

Image result for what happened book imageSince then she’s angered even her own party with her excuses for the fact that she managed to lose to Trump of all people. Her finger pointing at others for her loss was/is also stupid.  But nothing, in my opinion can top the stupidity of her new book title. Talk about setting yourself up for endless lampooning.

This woman is always reported to be very smart. Yet she says so many stupid things. Perhaps smart doesn’t equal competent. We certainly know from so many examples that smart doesn’t equal integrity.

Hopefully we never again hear from Tim Kaine (Clinton’s running mate, in case you forgot). But let’s hope we can forget his postmortem on the election: “They killed us but they ain’t whooped us yet.”

Republicans don’t get a pass either – how about George Herbert Walker Bush and “read my lips?” They did decided he lied and he was a one term president.

Although, “You won’t have Richard Nixon to kick around anymore” is also kind of stupid. And whiny.
The stupid things said by Donald Trump would take a couple of posts. I’ll spare you.

 

Barack Obama told a crowd that his grandmother was a typical white lady in 2008.
“The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person.”
We all know that politicians will throw anyone under the bus. But Grandma? Wasn’t that stupid?
The fact is that stupid things are said, on-air, on-line and in print every day. Even an honest press wouldn’t have time to report all of them. But a smart press would try. Making yourselves hated and disrespected seems a stupid thing to do.
A press that is disrespected and disbelieved isn’t a good thing for the country.
So much stupid – so little time.
Hope you have a great Monday and a very good week.
As always, this is an…

    Another day when WordPress has decided to eliminated the spaces between my paragraphs. Sorry about that. I know it makes the post very hard to read. Personally, I wouldn’t bother.

      It is showing up fine for me, so no worries! And heck yeah, I’d bother! I always want to know what’s on your mind, and this post most definitely does not disappoint!

      What has amazed me over the past 8 yrs was the lack of the media focusing on all the stupid things Obama said – neve mind Biden, whose MANY gaffes were just laughed off as “Uncle Joe being Uncle Joe” – compared to how Bush was treated before him, and Trump after him.

      But yeah, we all say stupid things from time to time – luckily, most of us don’t usually have a camera on us or a microphone in front of us. Whew! 🙂

      Great post, Marge!

        Glad to hear it’s showing up for you. Evidently something on my side of the monitor. Sometimes if I just “restart” the computer the problems disappear. I’ll give that a try. It’s just so damn frustrating!

    I just loved this cartoon from Gary Brookins. It expresses what so many of us feel so often.

    Speaking of stupid, there’s always Andrea Mitchell to add to the list.

    Andrea Mitchell: “I don’t know if there are cases” of whites hurt by affirmative action

    No one is claiming that racial discrimination against whites and Asians prevents them from getting some sort of college education. There are plenty of institutions around that will take pretty much anyone with a pulse.

    So Nelson’s claim that there are “more white students in college now than ever before” proves nothing. The problem is that white and Asian students are being denied admission to the most selective, prestigious schools in favor of applicants with inferior—at times vastly inferior—academic credentials based on racial discrimination.

    Take, for example, the findings of this study of admissions at top US universities [emphasis added]:

    “Blacks received an admissions boost worth 310 SAT points compared with whites. Hispanics received a 130 point preference, and Asians received a 140 point penalty compared with whites. Taken together, on average, an Asian American student must score a whopping 450 points higher on the combined math and verbal sections of the SAT to have the same chance of being admitted as an African American applicant.”

    Surely both Nelson and Mitchell must be generally familiar with those facts. For Nelson to claim that the “premise that this is hurting white students is wrong” is to deny the obvious.

    The former Police Chief of Ferguson has written a book, and in it, he discusses the difference between how the FBI handled their investigation vs. the DOJ (hint: one was really political): https://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2017/08/04/former-ferguson-police-chief-writes-tellall-book-about-michael-brown-shooting-n2363978

    Are you *&%$#@%$^#&^$%* kidding me with this??? This is a BUSINESS professor who is going to allow his poor little kiddies with no ability to cope with failure and who eel entitled to whatever they WANT, not what they EARN, to CHANGE THEIR GRADES, get “positive reinforcement” like they are in kindergarten, and leave if the talk of some business practice or whatever is too painful for them to hear? SERIOUSLY??? What about when those students who earned a C but demand an A – and GET It – decide to get their MBAs? They end up in schools with people who actually EARNED their grades, thus brining everyone else down. Never mind the whole “open book/notes test” taking. WOW.

    This whole mentality does not raise people up. To enable people on this level to not learn to work hard, earn what they want, and reward them for whining when they don’t get what they think they are entitled to is destructive to them, and to us as a society. Enough with turning universities into exceedingly expensive daycares. They are SUPPOSED to be places in which young people learn, are challenged, and GROW< not remain perpetual toddlers. Good. LORD. Talk about STUPID:
