Super Stupid

Has Gary Johnson Smoked Himself Stupid?

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson never was able to name a single world leader he respects, but that's okay, Johnson says, because you can't invade countries if you don't know where they are.

JOHNSON: "You know what? The fact that somebody can dot the Is and cross the Ts on a foreign leader or a geographic location, that then allows them to put our military in harm's way. [...]

We elect people who can dot the Is and cross the Ts on these names and geographic locations as opposed to the underlying philosophy which is, let's stop getting involved in these regime changes."

Gary Johnson isn't just proud that he knows nothing, he believes knowing things is a liability. He embraces ignorance.

Johnson isn't even qualified to be the mayor of a moderately sized American city.

To say that Hillary Clinton is the most knowledgeable and intelligent person running for president feels like an understatement. She's the only candidate for president who isn't completely idiotic.

    Maybe he has smoked himself stupid. Or maybe he was made that way. He could have said Justin Trudeau and been done with it. Justin is a pretty benign leader. But this guy can’t even name the leader of Canada?
    He has no business in the race.

    This is what Millennials are considering/choosing over Hillary Clinton?

    Gary Johnson has decided that if he can’t get 15%, he might as well just get 0%. That’s not what “go for broke” means, Gary.

    I don’t think the spin you want to put on things is that “ignorance is bliss.”

    “Maybe I think too much.”

    Oh, no, that’s not your problem, sir. Not at all.

    Hey, let’s elect my cat. Or my dog. They’ve each got a brain the size of a walnut, too.
