I have to say it once again;
-Never underestimate the power of ignorant idiots in large groups!

You cannot currently send a star to Ben because you have done so within the last day

7 good ones ...for starters ! Thanks for the trip down GOP memory lane Lynn !.

InsaniTea..it's mandatory for rightwingers and has been for no less than the past 12 years at min.

The only time a rightwing has it anywhere near correct, when it comes to 'science', is when it's followed by the word 'fiction'.

As I said on another thread, The TeaBillies should go ahead and separate from the Republican Party, Fracture the GOP into their three legs: Corporatists, Theocrats and Neanderthals.

Is bad enough they "say" it but that people voted for these idiots is just as bad. For a Country that use to be ahead of the curve, it is just for all of these reasons that we are slipping into the abyss. Next thing they'll be saying the earth is flat and the dinosaurs walked off the end as to why we don't see them anymore. Oh that is not correct, they feel the dinosaurs are a hoax.

I do wish people would stop insulting Neanderthals by comparing them to Republicans.

The contempt with which the Republican party views reason is staggering. Republicans have become proudly and unquestionably anti-science. The guttural rejection of reason, evidence and science trickles into just about every aspect of Republican ideology. The situation of the Bush administration when he ignored science on several every major issue, preferring to promote bizarre policies, such as abstinence-only sex education; seems to be the ongoing policy now if only they would practice that they will be dying out in a few years, apart from Ron Paul who will be getting dragged back to an Egyptian Mummy expeditions for many years to come, though they will have to bury Dick Cheney in concrete at a crossroad with a stake in his heart just to be sure ... though only when they find his heart which may take a while.

Limiting it to under 700,000 jaw-droppingly dumb things is praising them with faint damnation. I'd like to see a list of 7 intelligent things Republicans have said over the last 20 years, but that might be a lot harder to do.

While these things are definitely so dumb they should be outlawed, I donīt like that the article implies that all Republicans think that way. This is simply not true and articles/statements like that do nothing good. We should try to find common ground and sincerely discuss the matters we disagree about instead of saying "look, the other guys are soooo stupid, haha!"

You know a mind is a terrible thing to waste but I do believe the Republicans have taken it to a level I never thought I'd see in my lifetime.

Sharon, no, not every Republican is that dumb, and there are some, damn few, but some, Republicans who care about the country. By that I mean politicians, not your next door neighbor. However in well over 95% of cases, voting for a Republican marks you as grossly ignorant and basically stupid. This is because without exception, everything the Republican party stands for is extremely damaging to the best interests of the country and the world.

The real sad part are the OTHER ignorant fools who actually believe this nonsense because Faux News or some other drug addict TOLD them what to believe and think.

I see that the GOP's efforts to balance the budget by defunding eduction has finally achieved it's goal, a whole generation of superstitious, ignorant people who can be easily controlled with lies. Too bad, they then elected stupid, ignorant and superstitious politicians to lead us.

Now everyone, we need to be fair and teach students the scientific theories as well as the alternate theories. First we teach the science of Evolution and the " alternate theory" Creationism. Next, we teach them that the Earth is round, and the "alternate theory"- the Earth is flat. What could possibly be wrong with that?!

There should be an intelligence test to get into politics, including a high school level of science and history. Might weed a few of the idiots out because I'm sure a few of them wouldn't even be able to read.

This is as bad as my neighbour who tells me the Bible says humans and dinosaurs walked the earth at the same time and who also believes this planet is only 2013 years old! Thank goodness these idiots are not running your country, yet. I really enjoyed the article and had the best laugh of the morning reading all those idiotic things they believe.

Joanne, it's funny you should say that about Neanderthals since it's a near certainty they were smarter than Homo Sapiens, but we had little trouble killing off the peace loving smart folks. You may see a correlation with today's American political system where liberals are decidedly more intelligent than conservatives, but less hateful and violent.
