Go to America!
Plenty of evidence there that nutters, wackos and the downright weird flourish. Especially in the South.“He may be stoopid but he’s our stoopid.”
A couple of examples among soooooo many are these below from the Huffington Post.
“Congressman Paul Broun (R-Ga.) said last week that evolution and the big bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of Hell."
"God's word is true. I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the big bang theory, all that is lies straight from the pit of Hell," said Broun, who is an MD (my emphasis - read it and weep). "It's lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior."
"You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I've found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don't believe that the earth's but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That's what the Bible says."
Broun is a high-ranking member of the House Science Committee, of which Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) is also a member.
Akin made headlines last month for suggesting that women don't get pregnant from "legitimate rape" because their bodies have "ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
The unreasoning stupidity of some of America’s finest is nothing new....
“We got no-necked oilmen from Texas
And good ol' boys from Tennessee
And college men from LSU
Went in dumb. Come out dumb too....
...We're rednecks, rednecks
And we don't know our ass from a hole in the ground”
Randy Newman’s lyrics to ‘Rednecks’ from his album ‘Sail Away’ 1974
Neither is belief in mumbo jumbo a barrier to the highest position in the States. Mitt Romney is a mormon. Says it all.
