You Might Be An Idiot

Jeff Foxworthy stretched somewhat less than a modicum of talent into a career by observing certain behaviors might mean you're a redneck. As news unfold it occurs to me that a lot of people might be idiots:
New Orleans Reelects Ray Nagin. The sad part is that he may well be the best man The Big Sleazy has to offer. At least Nero could play the fiddle and had the good sense to kill himself. Accountability matters and this guy abdicated more responsibility than a year's worth of alleged fathers on the Maury Povitch show. Since New Orleans has demonstrated that it can't be trusted with it's money and certainly not ours, can we really expect Ray "Not My Job" Nagin to rebuild all that damaged infrastructure with any accountability whatsoever? Where's Epaphroditos when you need him?
Illegal Aliens Who Use Fictitious Documentation Still Get Social Security Benefits. No doubt the illegal aliens who come here work hard, some even pay taxes and social security. But if they are indeed illegal and used spurious social security numbers why the hell should they be eligible for social security benefits? If I went to ________ and did the same thing would that country be so accommodating to me? I doubt it. It's hard to take all this b.s. about social security reform seriously when the pointy heads in Washington reward illegal behavior with our money.
Marc Ash Fake But True Defense. Marc Ash is the editor of who reported that Karl Rove was indicted for perjury. In the real world he wasn't, at least not yet. Then Mr. Ash issues this mealy mouthed weaselfication:

On Saturday afternoon, May 13, 2006, TruthOut ran a story titled, "Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators." The story stated in part that top Bush aide Karl Rove had earlier that day been indicted on the charges set forth in the story's title. The time has now come, however, to issue a partial apology to our readership for this story. While we paid very careful attention to the sourcing on this story, we erred in getting too far out in front of the news-cycle. In moving as quickly as we did, we caused more confusion than clarity. And that was a disservice to our readership and we regret it. As such, we will be taking the wait-and-see approach for the time being. We will keep you posted.

This from a group self titled Hey Ash get yourself a tin foil hat and STFU already. It's one thing to be wrong, we all are from time to time, it's quite another to persist in error and pretend to - I'm not even sure what he's trying to pretend, but so far he's wrong and doesn't have the grapes to admit it.
