USA: Home of the Proudly Stupid

Oy. Via LGF, comes this:

Today’s right wing jawdropper: in Alabama, the “True Republican PAC” is running an advertisement mocking Republican gubernatorial candidate Bradley Byrne for supporting the teaching of evolution in schools.

Yes, you read that right — these “True Republicans” are so proudly, invincibly ignorant that they’re making fun of a fellow Republican for not being a moron.



Except — Byrne actually is a moron too, just like the “True Republicans.” And he’s outraged that his moron credentials were questioned.

Byrne responds to this “despicable attack” with a statement: “I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God… I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books.”


[...]

The group that’s funding the “True Republican PAC?”

The Alabama Education Association.

These people ought to be considered too stupid to respond to, except that an alarming number of similarly stupid Americans ARE responding to them, and POSITIVELY, if one can accomplish that suspension of disbelief.

We may well be screwed here; rationality seems to reside in the minority in this day and age.
