You know I’m kinda disappointed with the “what’s the stupidest thing someone can say on the Melissa Harris Perry show” award today. I watch that whole hellish wit-sucking chasm of intelligence, I gaze into the abyss for the benefit of finding something stupid, and this is all they can come up with.

I mean that’s just laughable. Luckily there is a rational person from Reason.com there who defended America from these ridiculous slurs.

What a YUGE coincidence!!
