Stupid Is As Stupid Says!
The dumbest shit we've heard so far in 2014.
In a Times column, Brooks recalled that smoking pot as a teen "deepened our friendships." But he's opposed to legalization. Why? He once screwed up a presentation in English class while high. He felt "like a total loser." It made him realize that "stoned people do stupid things." So he quit puffing, eventually becoming a shameless cheerleader for invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Mission accomplished!
Brown described pot as a threat to the American way of life, tweeting: “Legal weed contributes to us being a fatter, dumber, sleepier nation even less able to compete with the Chinese.” Huh? A megabillion-dollar pot industry could revitalize the US economy and begin neutralizing our $1.2 trillion debt to China. Also, recent studies show pot doesn’t make a person “fatter” or “dumber,” but just the opposite.
The host of Morning Joe offered this non sequitur: “I don’t get the legalization thing. Pot just makes you dumb.” If that’s true, Joe must be speaking from personal experience. He boasted: “Never once did I say, ‘Hey, man, that looks like something I want to do.’” Or even like something he might want to investigate before offering his own arrogant, uninformed opinion.
Grace stereotyped stoners as “fat and lazy” on CNN, then outdid herself on her own show, warning that “people on pot that shoot each other, that stab each other, that strangle each other, that kill whole families.” Talk about reefer madness! No one took her too seriously, though: She was mocked by Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, among countless others, and parodied on Saturday Night Live.
Bill O’Reilly is always a sure bet for an idiotic pot quip. Here’s one of his gems from the new year: “Some adults can handle it, others cannot, so it’s literally Russian roulette.” Gee, Bill, maybe you should check your dictionary for the meaning of “literal.” Placing a semi-loaded weapon next to your head isn’t exactly the same as smoking a joint. O’Reilly is literally a moron.
