More Stupid

They really do want to fail and fail badly this November. How else can you judge what Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, said in an interview.

Digby says Welcome Their Hatred, and Susie said Poor Robert Gibbs, just before hitting the bomb release.

This White House is a biosphere, cut off from the rest of the country. Don’t they know any real people? Do they ever leave their bubble?

They were given substantial majorities in both houses of Congress; they haven’t provided even one substantial benefit for the people who voted for them; they are talking about taking even more from those people; and they don’t understand why those people are angry.

Obama may be intelligent, but he’s not very smart.

National Stupid Month?

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former. – Albert Einstein

First off, the formula e = mc² was not a bolt out of the blue. It expresses the ratios involved in the Law of the Conservation of Energy and is obviously derivative of Leibnitz’s formula for kinetic energy from the 1680s and the general concepts put forth in the Laws of Motion published by Isaac Newton in that time frame.

If more Americans took math and science in high school, and those that did actually paid attention, then Andrew Schlafly [spawn of Phyllis] would not have attempted to claim that the Theory of Relativity was a liberal plot to push relativism while claiming that it doesn’t allow for exceptions, and Steve Bates wouldn’t get annoyed at him.

Some basic logic for Mr. Schafly – only absolutes have no exceptions, OK? If there are no exceptions, there can’t be relativity. That’s also why the formula, e = mc², is not the equivalent of the Theory of Relativity.

Aside: Steve has already encountered more than his share of stupid this month. His DSL went down and when they reconnected it, SBC decided it didn’t want to talk to Linux users. The fact that SBC is a “Baby Bell” and Unix, the grandfather of Linux. was developed at Bell Labs and the fact that Linux powers an estimated 3 out of 4 servers on the Internet, doesn’t stop SBC from demanding that you use IE or Safari to connect to their system. Maroons, just total maroons [as a certain rabbit use to say].
