The stupidity of wingnuts – abortion edition

Posted by That Other Mike on 16/12/2011

The stupidity of wingnuts never ceases to amaze me — for a group of people who seem so ready to castigate centrists and leftists as emotionally-led, over-empathetic, bleeding hearts, they do love to push some idiotic and lookatthefoetushowcute laws when it comes to abortion, not a single one of which has any foundation but emotion, whether it’s misplaced paternalism or jesus-pleasin’.

It just so profoundly illustrates something I’ve mentioned before — the American Right has elevated idiocy to an art form and an article of veneration. Even worse, though, is that they have also somehow managed to convince themselves that their particular brand of stupid is actually wise and clever; remember how the Palinistas tried to market her as some kind of canny operator, full of homespun wisdom? Yeah, exactly, and just like with Palin, they will fail every time.
