Idiot's Delight

Okay, this month's winner was easy; way too easy, as you will see.  It never ceases to amaze me how some people just have a knack for saying the stupidest thing at just the right moment.  You really have to hand it to this moron.  He truly went out of his way to wear the dunce cap.

Without further ado:

Michael Brown, former director of FEMA under George Bush.  I did a double take when I heard his comments concerning President Obama's visit to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy devastated that state.

"One thing President Obama's gonna be asked is, why did he jump on Hurricane Sandy so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick?  At some point, somebody's going to ask that question."

Let me see if I get this straight.  The guy who screwed the pooch during Katrina and whose boss - that would be Bush - did a fly-over New Orleans while millions of people were without power or shelter is criticizing Obama's motives during Sandy?  That's rich.  But, as they say in those ads, wait, there's more.

Seems Captain Marvel wasn't done just criticizing Obama.  He directed his ire at the people of New Jersey and New York, many of whom lost everything they had.

“People are going to get frustrated.  I’d just encourage people to just kind of chill out over this whole situation.”

So "Heckuva Job Brownie" thinks that people should just chill out.  This from the man who, on the morning Katrina hit New Orleans, wrote, "Can I quit, now?" And then later sent an email to his deputy, "I'm trapped, please rescue me."

Calling this idiot clueless does a disservice to millions of people who are clueless.  At least a clueless person has a chance of some day seeing the light.  In whatever alternate universe Michael Brown resides in, I'm afraid the light has gone completely out.

This campaign just keeps getting better and better. I think it's a tie, though, between Brown and Huckabee, who told people that "hellfire awaits" them if they vote for Obama. There's a classic illustration of the adage, "When you mix religion and politics, you get politics."
