My money is on the baboon…

In the last few days I been dumbfounded (pun intended) and the gross ignorance shown by some elected officials.  I swear these guys have the IQ of an autistic baboon.

First, there was the now infamous ‘the internet is a series of tubes‘ statement by serial spamhead Ted Stevens.  Today there is this gem from James Inhofe of Oklahoma; “Al Gore is full of crap…This global warming thing is a hoax.”  Gee, what it is that they do in Oklahoma?  Right, cows and oil.  I wonder where Mr. Inhofe gets his campaign money from?

How do these people find the bathroom on their own much less get elected to the US Senate?  And even more troubling is how do these mental midgets mange to ge re-elected?!  It’s no wonder that we are a laughing stock to the rest of the world.

I’ve often said that it’s quite impossible for someone to manage/lead a group responsible for a task without being an expert in that task.  Would you think it appropriate for a plumber to be head of surgery at your local hospital?  How about an assembly line worker as a federal court judge?  Both are patently absurd, right?

Then how is it that spamhead Stevens is Chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation?   Does he have a science degree?  How about civil engineering?  Umm…. MBA?  BZZZT – Nope.

He’s a lawyer.
