AZ & SC Compete For Most Willfully Ignorant

Like the kid in Sixth Sense who said "I see dead people" ...well, here in Arizona, "I see stupid and scared people". Man, I thought South Carolina was bad when I lived there with their secessionist, bigoted, heritage-of-hatred, South will rise again, segregated "Christian" churches, we-don't-need-you-damn-Yankees-here, ignorant perspectives. But here in Arizona, they're trying really hard to surpass South Carolina in the really dumb bills being passed in the State Assembly.

Today, the Arizona Legislature passed a bill (link here) that "require U.S. presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the constitutional requirements to be president." How completely idiotic! Hey, Republicans (it passed on a party line vote), the birth certificate provided IS REAL, you willfully ignorant anachronisms! (links here [Snopes no less], here, here, and here). Yeah, but these are the same morons who deny climate change because the East Coast had alot of snow this year. Does Pox News have a coded "zombie signal" embedded in it's HD feed, that is hypnotizing it's viewers perhaps?

I agree with Phoenix Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who said 'the bill is one of several measures that are making Arizona "the laughing stock of the nation."'


  1. These things have a way of coming back to haunt the party that implements them. Didn't the republicans push through presidential term limits as a reaction to FDR and then pretty much immediately get bitten in the ass by having a popular president in Ike, who likely would've won a third term? Yeah, fear of FDR got them JFK. Ha ha! Reap what you sow, and such.

  2. And then there's this outrage.

    You have a penchant for picking batshit crazy red states to live in, Joe.
