Idiot Quote of the Day

I agree with Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo who says this is the "stupidest thing I ever heard."

Democrats wish they had the diversity of speakers and deep bench [of the GOP] to show America -Chuck Todd on the RNC

Democrats wish they had the diversity of the GOP? I think you may have it backwards, Chuck.

This is what passes for wisdom inside the beltway and perhaps the Dick Morris School of Non-Observation. Todd is clearly following the bullshit-artist model pioneered by Mark Halperin. It's a golden ticket into the Hall of the Very Serious.

    We’re talking about the same convention that looks like a mix of the KKK and the Hair Club for Men, right? Only with a bonus token black to prove how not racist they are.

    It was INCREDIBLY diverse at the RNC. White folks with lineages from all over Europe were represented there.

    Not having to see tehTodd or that cymbals clapping monkey Gregory has driven me to cbs as the (slightly) lesser evil.

    What the hell happened to Chuck Todd. I remember him being the sane, level-headed numbers guy back in 2007-2008. Are open bars, and being treated by politicians with less contempt than you deserve really worth it? Do they use Jameson’s in the well drinks, or something? Do Republicans have weed THAT good?

    If I had been asked to guess who wrote this dumbfuck tweet, it’d be

    1. Jonah Goldberg (not like he has any professional reputation anyway))

    2. Donald Trump (a bottomless well of Stupid)

    3. Juan Williams (angling for his own regular prime-time hour on Fox: Dignity For Sale w/ Juan Williams.)

    Teary-eyed Erin Burnett did it for me. I know Tampa is my hometown and all, but fer fuck’s sake, where’s a Rogue Nation ICBM when you need one?

      It wasn’t a tweet. The words–and other equally dumb ones–actually came out of his mouth.

        My Gods, that’s almost worse. It’s easy to Tweet dumb things. taptaptap-post-OMG did I really just do that! Saying it on national television implies a degree of forethought…

        Why did I decide to stop drinking during an election year?

          Looks like I picked a hell of a week to stop sniffin’ glue.

            Best. Movie. Evah!

    If James O’Keefe got all up in Shaquille O’Neal’s face saying, “You WISH you had a dick this big!” that would be stupider. Maybe.

      James O’Keefe wishes his dick was bigger than a hamster’s.
