Making Homer Look Smart
We need a new category. In this era of the Teabaggers, Ed Brayton's "Dumbass Quote of the Day," even when expanded to "of the year" or "all time" just no longer cuts it:
After the NAACP criticized the Tea Party for tolerating racism, Tea Party spokesman Mark Williams said, "I am disinclined to take lectures on racial sensitivity from a group that insists on calling black people 'Colored.'"
The sad thing is he probably still doesn't realize he said something so breathtakingly and jawdroppingly stupid.
One is tempted to say that such invincible ignorance is a prerequisite of being a member of the Teabaggers.
