"I Wish I Was Joking!"

Still don't think that the Laws of Stupidity hold sway in this country? These next two or three items should change all of that! First up is our good buds over at Fux & Fiends on the Fux Comedy Network are at it again. If they are not calling Michelle Obama "Obama's baby mama", with my favorite right wingnut commentator Michelle "Keffiyeh Chic" Malkin they are struggling with the spelling of the word monkey.

Why are the cute wingers always the craziest?! From Salon:

Fox News calls Michelle Obama "Obama's baby mama"

The image “http://images.salon.com/politics/war_room/2008/06/11/fox_obama/story.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.An alert reader wrote in just a little while ago to let us know about something he'd spotted on Fox News Wednesday afternoon. During a segment discussing conservative attacks against Michelle Obama, the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama, the network described the former as "Obama's baby mama."

I checked, and sure enough, as you can see below, our e-mailer was right. In fact, that description was displayed on-screen several times during the segment, which featured anchor Megyn Kelly and conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, an FNC contributor. MORE!

Check out the video

Michelly M you keep doing your thing because you are a constant source of amusement! BTW, Ain't you somebodies "baby's momma" which is the correct terminology! Now the mama part got to me a little because it came off to me kind of like mammy or one of those southern expressions like calling a black man boy but hey it's to be expected from the emissaries of Wingnuttia!

So they can't get to Barack and make any of their lunacy stick so now they wanna go after his wife. I would be more upset but this is Rethug 101. They went after Hillary Clinton when $Bill was running for his second term. They even attacked Chelsea his daughter! So if your a little thin skinned you better "man up" cause the rethugs are desperate and they are going to throw everything & the kitchen sink at Barack, his family and anyone he associates with in the hopes something, anything sticks. Good luck with that wingnuts because we are definitely ready for that bullshit this year! I wonder how McGrampa's first wife really feels about the good senator! However, we got a lot to cover so let's move on...

File this next item in the "dumbing down of the nation" category, this was the original story that I was talking about earlier from fux & fiends that really show the Laws of Stupidity at work. From Crooks & Liars:

Only on Fox & Friends. This morning they did a segment on the English language and that there are a lot of words that many people find difficult to spell correctly. I stopped on monkey. I’m including video to complement the comedic irony.

Steve Doocy says that another word many find difficult to spell is the word soldier, because the “i” throws people off. The former beauty queen then pipes up and says — “Well, the D. There’s no D in it.” She follows that up by asking if they even make “hardcore” dictionaries anymore. Be sure to hang on (if you can make it) for the finale as Doocy decries:

“So many people are trying to dumb down America and the world! Just leave it the way it is! Study your books, people!”

Teh stupid…it hurts…. This is just screaming for a “Write Your Own Caption”

So what does that really say about the viewers?! Granted American English is the only language that has to be taught to it's own citizens but "monkey". I remember seeing a little bit of the National Spelling Bee last weekend or so ago and monkey is a preschool word! These kids were spelling words I didn't know existed.

Like the First Law of Stupidity states, "people always underestimate the amount of stupid people in circulation in a given population!" This just goes to show the validity of the Laws of Stupidity!

The party is just Getting Started!
