Since Pat Robertson didn't come up with something monumentally stupid to say publicly this week, others felt the need to fill the void.
This week's dumbass awards go to:
Kanye West. Nice work s---forbrains! Way to help out the cause. "We already realize a lot of people that could help are at war right now, fighting another way -- and they've given them permission to go down and shoot us!" His next sentence was... "George Bush doesn't care about black people!"
Honorable mention goes to Mike Myers (he's dope, and that's not a compliment). As the linked article points out, he actually handed the microphone back after West outed himself as a first class jackass. Maybe he panicked. (ed.: before I get spamwhacked, I know they weren't handing a mic back and forth; it's a figure of speech...)
But the stupidity factor was high elsewhere as well. Tied for first as dumbass of the week has to be...
Dennis Hastert: Get a brain please! "It looks like a lot of that place could be bulldozed," "...you know we build Los Angeles and San Francisco on top of earthquake fissures, and they rebuild, too. Stubbornness."
Come on people. Pull it together here! Isn't there enough going on without you all trying to outdo each other displaying your knee jerk, compassionless, politically pretentious rhetoric? Guess not.
The sign on our church right now says, "A closed mouth gathers no foot." It's a stupid saying but these guys need to hear it.
