It’s the stupidity, Stupid!

The guy, above, is Dick Armey who’s spent decades as an inside-the-Beltway, Clinton-era Republican big deal emeritus until a freak lightening bolt on I-495, knocked him off his ass and, after a decade of political irrelevance, Armey was reborn as a grassroots activist.

Until recently, Armey held sway over the FreedomWorks TEA Party candidate factory where he juiced his retirement account with enormous consulting fees.  Now that Armey has become irrelevant again, FreedomWorks has set him loose with a golden paraglider.

Nevertheless, old political pro that he is, Armey has a few “lessons-learned” for the Republican Party because he’s still a patriot at heart.

Armey shared his prescriptions on today’s broadcast of CBS This Morning (guess he’s been demoted from Sunday Morning to Monday Morning).  According to Armey, the GOP’s biggest problem is “The stupidity, Stupid!”  He went on to say that it’s the party’s job to support and train candidates (like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, perhaps) to keep their stupid thoughts to themselves in order to become stupid office-holders.

Now I could have told the GOP that for a lot less than $8 million but, evidently the problem is even bigger than I thought because the guy who’s delivering the message thinks this:

One of the things that we see as we look at Glenn Beck’s work that’s been fascinating to me, is we see a more true and accurate history of the United States, and we see it documented at levels of rigor that, in fact, one would expect out of Ph.D. dissertations — it is serious, scholarly work….[Liberal critics] don’t have to argue with Glenn Beck. They have to argue with his documentation and they can’t match that level of rigor.

Now, I ask you . . .

[Liberal critics] don’t have to argue with Glenn Beck. They have to argue with his documentation and they can’t match that level of rigor stupidity.

There, that’s better.

Also, his “point” speaks more to the point that stupid people are more impressed by detailed presentations when they are presented by people who are either 1) as stupid as they are or 2) banking on the fact that their audience is as dumb as a post.  In Beck’s case, clearly the former; in Gingrich’s, perhaps the latter but I’m not betting on it.

They have to argue with his documentation and they can’t match that level of rigor.

When “documentation” = “pulling stuff out of your rear end and smearing it on a blackboard”.

Seriously, how does someone say such a thing and maintain a straight face?  Oh right, Dick Armey said it.  The one who accuses other Republicans of saying, you know, stupid things.

Were Dick Armey’s parents involved in gay porn or something? I mean, how else do you explain that name?

Would this be the Glenn Beck whose major source for historicalamalizering is Liar-For-Christ David Barton?

It’s rather meta here, how Armey is a walking example of the degeneration of his party into a bunch of Glenn Beck-believing loons.  Maybe he’s shifted into a new career as a performance artist?

”...documented at levels of rigor that, in fact, one would expect out of Ph.D. dissertations”?

Levels of rigor to match a Ph.D dissertation? Srsly?

This from a guy who has a PhD in economics?  Heckofajob, University of Oklahoma!!

Who’s going to lead Dick Armey’s Dick Army now?

Levels of rigor to match a Ph.D dissertation? Srsly?

Cleon Skousen… not a primary source!

Who’s going to lead Dick Armey’s Dick Army now?

Oh you! @B4.  Zing went the strings of my heart, again.

>>>Were Dick Armey’s parents involved in gay porn or something? I mean, how else do you explain that name?<<<

I think they were big fans of the Village People.

So, I guess that picture above can be captioned “All Hat, No Cowboy”?

One of the things that we see as we look at Glenn Beck’s work that’s been fascinating to me, is we see a more true and accurate history of the United States


If that’s the case I wouldn’t brag about it.
