Are people born this stupid, or do they have to work at it?

This whole David Letterman/Sarah Palin thing is so typically asinine that it’s stunning.  A deliberate misunderstanding of a stupid joke, simply so that there can be a wild, frenzied 3-minute hate for idiots.   I think what I find the most disturbing is the gleefully self-aware attitude that the agitators have.  They’re like a bunch of overgrown Bart Simpsons but without Bart’s class, intelligence and wit (such as he has).  They know that they’re simply lying to get the crowd riled up, but they not only don’t care, they want to go further.  This is how these vicious swine operate, and if their goading leads to somebody getting hurt or even killed, of course, they’ll put on their finest shocked pious expressions and deny any involvement, even if it means bare-faced lying about their own words.  They bring shame to their families, though they have none themselves.

    According to http://deligentia.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/enabling-lies-the-palin-factor/, Palin’s lie about not quitting her job also involves misappropriating hunting language that really doesn’t apply. I agree. I wonder how many people will call her on it?
