I know this should really go under Snack Food but I really can’t help but front-page this vomit-inducing bit of editorial page wingnut autoerotica by Dan Quayle’s son, who is now a freshman in the House of Representatives:

When I was a child, President Ronald Reagan was the nice man who gave us jelly beans when we visited the White House. I didn’t know then, but I know it now: The jelly beans were much more than a sweet treat that he gave out as gifts. They represented the uniqueness and greatness of America — each one different and special in its own way, but collectively they blended in harmony.

The apple doesn’t often fall far from the tree, hmm?

How the fuck does dreck like this get posted at the New York Times:
Ms. Palin, the former governor of Alaska, is scheduled to give a major speech Friday night at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, Calif., in honor of what would have been the 40th president’s 100th birthday. It’s possible that Ms. Palin could use the opportunity to deliver a broadly conceived foreign policy speech that uses the turmoil in Egypt to advance an understanding of her national security beliefs that goes beyond her use of Twitter messages and Facebook posts…
Sure, I get it that NYT writers are told to occasionally write puff pieces on Palin to fight off that mean ol’ “lamestream” media attack. But “a broadly conceived foreign policy speech that uses the turmoil in Egypt to advance an understanding of her national security beliefs“?? Seriously? Point to one instance of her making foreign policy statements that didn’t sound like the result of solving a word jumble and I’ll give you a lollipop. h/t DougJ

Bill O’Reilly takes another stab at defending faith. Goes about as well as the first time:

Okay, how did the Moon get there? How’d the Moon get there? Look, you pinheads who attacked me for this, you guys are just desperate. How’d the Moon get there? How’d the Sun get there? How’d it get there? Can you explain that to me? How come we have that and Mars doesn’t have it? Venus doesn’t have it. How come? Why not? How’d it get here?

He does realize that nonbelievers actually do have theories for this stuff, right? Big Bang and so on?

I was thinking of making some wisecracks about his stupidity, but I’ve read this quote about six times now, and I’ve concluded that engaging with it is actually making me stupider. Click through to the link if you need some of that sort of thing. I really think this is so blatantly and obviously stupid there’s no way to make it sound even stupider. There’s no deep stupidity to draw out, it’s all right there.
