The upcoming mid-term elections in November are drawing all manners of idiots out of the woodwork. We the sensible, we the intelligent, we the humanitarians, we who wish sanity in our government, are going to have our work cut out for us in the next nine months! In a brief visit to one of my ‘go-to’ news aggregators, trying to find something more interesting to write about than Devin Nunes trumped-up memo, I came across the following idiots. Before reading on, I must insist that you be sure you are sitting down and also have a firm grip on your jaw so that it doesn’t drop to the floor, possibly causing physical damage for which you might be inclined to sue me.
Cynthia Dunbar is a Virginia republican who will be seeking a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in November. Dunbar believes that the proper biblical role for government is that it should have no role in providing for those in need, as that is a task that God has assigned to the church. “We have to realize that when we hand that over to an ungodly government, without a heart, without a soul, that is not how God intended it to be done.”
Where do these people come from?
Michele Bachman is a former representative to the U.S. House of Representatives from Minnesota. You all remember her, right? She won the Third Place prize in the 2016 Idiot of the Year contest. She interviewed with televangelist Jim Bakker earlier this month. During that interview she told Bakker that she plans to run for the Senate seat vacated by Al Franken, if God tells her to. But take heart, for it would appear the people in her home state are not that crazy about the idea of her sitting in the Senate, having placed this billboard:
Okay, Michele … you’ve got your answer, now go back to whatever it was you were doing.
Gloria Copeland isn’t running for any office … at least not yet, though in this circus, anything is possible … but she nonetheless participates in the idiocy. She is the wife of televangelist Kenneth Copeland, and apparently has her own television program, where she announced earlier this week …
“Listen partners, we don’t have a flu season. And don’t receive it when somebody threatens you with, ‘Everybody is getting the flu.’ We’ve already had our shot, He bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases. That’s what we stand on.”
Just a note to my friends and readers: the flu is taking a heavy toll this season, and not just on non-Christians. If I were you, I would ignore Ms. Copeland’s advice.
I came across these three in under five minutes … it is frightening to imagine how many more are out there. And what’s even scarier is to imagine how many people believe this b.s. that they promulgate. In a saner time, I might have said that they are such obvious idiots that they don’t stand a chance, but I said that about Trump, and look what happened. I really do need to get my crystal ball back out of the shop!
