Those politicians and political mouthpieces of ours say some pretty stupid things. Oddly, when they open their mouths to speak the words that will eventually cause them a great deal of speculation and downright ridicule it’s apparent that they believe they are being wise and intelligent. They must, unless it’s the opposite and they just think the rest of us our stupid and have decided to proceed with the ideology of “when in Rome.”
Yes Pat Robertson was in fact quoted saying...
"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." –Pat Robertson
You would think that this statement came right out of the 1950's, sadly it came right out of 1992. Oddly enough he received minimal repercussions, the only real consequence he had was a moment of media attention that had quickly faded. Today many people have completely forgotten this strong yet stupid quote.
Michelle Bachman actually has said this...
"Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." -Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009
Michelle Bachman has one statement after another that is certainly stupid and could possibly be deemed as retarded. She constantly speaks and I believe or at least it appears that she in actually thinks that she is connecting with the American public. If in fact she is then we may all want to consider moving to a smarter location, like perhaps maybe Germany.
Jimmy Carter speaks honestly just short of his election…
"I've looked on many women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times. God knows I will do this and forgives me." - President Jimmy Carter, in an interview with 'Playboy' one month prior to the 1976 election
I wouldn’t necessarily say that the words of Jimmy Carter were stupid, in fact if anything they were merely honest. The only real point that was stupid is that he chose to give Playboy an interview discussing sex and everything else a matter of weeks before his election in the year 1976. As prudish as people can often be in today’s time I can only imagine that they were worse in the 1970’s.
I could go on with the stupid things that are political voices have said, however it would probably take my entire lifetime to get through each statement. That being said I leave you with these three.
