David Corn picks up on the Tom DeLay/Pete Seeger Dumb-Fuckery over at the Huffington Celebrity Mutual Blow-Job. Adds some interesting stuff about Seeger's 1955 testimony before the HUAC. Said Pete to that august body:
I am not going to answer any questions as to my association, my philosophical or religious beliefs or my political beliefs, or how I voted in any election, or any of these private affairs. I think these are very improper questions for any American to be asked, especially under such compulsion as this. I would be very glad to tell you my life if you want to hear of it.Pete got a year in chokey (later overturned) for contempt of Congress for that little crack.
And Lance Mannion (where does that boy find the time?) elucidates the Dumb-Fuck Theory of History:
I believe that the Republicans are driving one car-length ahead.
These are not even particularly bright stupid people. They are for the most part thieves and thugs. They are, an amazing number of them, seriously, seriously sexually screwed-up, which makes them neurotic, paranoid, angry, and constantly on the brink of being swallowed up whole by their own weird impulses and repressed desires. (See Jim West.) The thugs and thieves among them are not only stupid, they are arrogant. They don't believe they will ever get caught. They think that the way things are going is the way they will always go.
The thieves among them don't care that all the bad policy they are making now will be unmade in the future, that things they are trying to get rid of now will come back later in spades---when the country is truly bankrupt and people are crying to the government for help, how high do you think the tax rates the Democrats will impose on the wealthy will be?
