People are stupid.
I actually don’t enjoy saying that, but it’s true nonetheless. People are incredibly, bewilderingly stupid.
For example, that New Jersey woman who served as a photo opportunity for President Obama after Hurricane Sandy hit? She’s an idiot for honestly believing that the President of the United States was going to take time out of his day to personally help her out.
Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
I feel very bad for her for losing her business the way she did and getting no help from the insurance company. But I can’t feel bad that she’s so incredibly naïve to actually believe Obama would follow through on his promise of “immediate” assistance. That’s on her head.
Even if Obama hadn’t proven himself to be a reprehensibly self-focused man and worse than useless in sensitive situations, his job description still wouldn’t include focusing on a single citizen like that.
Sorry, but it’s stupid to think otherwise.
It’s similarly stupid to think that what our government needs is simply more female representatives.
Yet speaking about the historic number of women now holding Senate seats in our nation’s capital, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) promoted that idea by erroneously claiming women to be “less confrontational” and better “problem solvers.” And Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) waxed silliness, saying, “What I find is, with all due deference to our male colleagues, that women’s styles tend to be more collaborative.”
While they’re stereotyping, can we also predict more catfights and crying? Because all women do those too, right?
Contrary to their pathetic platitudes, it’s not women we need in government. It’s decent people of either gender who have common sense, integrity and humility.
Claiming anything else?
