More Conservative Stupidity

They must grow these guys on special trees:

U.S. Rep. Steve Austria said he supports a scaled-down federal economic-stimulus proposal, but the Beavercreek Republican told The Dispatch editorial board that the huge influx of money into the economy could have a negative effect.

“When (President Franklin) Roosevelt did this, he put our country into a Great Depression,” Austria said. “He tried to borrow and spend, he tried to use the Keynesian approach, and our country ended up in a Great Depression. That’s just history.”

You can’t blame Republicans and conservatives for not knowing history, what with the way they deride education, but still, you’d expect some rudimentary, even elementary knowledge of history before opening your mouth.

To those conservatives who get upset when I call conservatives stupid, I have to just ask, what do you expect me to say? You elect individuals who are stupid. It is hard not to call them stupid when that is what they are. Steve Austria is stupid. If you don’t want stupidity to represent you, DON’T ELECT STUPIDITY!
