Dumbfuckery du Jour

There is some dumbfuckery words cannot excoriate.  It is so outrageously, egregiously, overwhelmingly stupid, our language cannot cope.  Luckily, PZ took a stab at it so I don't have to.  Let me just advise the South Dakota House of Representatives of one thing: if you are so scientifically illiterate that you cannot ascertain the difference between astronomy, which is science, and astrology, which is absolute fucking woo, you have no business trying to legislate what students do and do not learn about any branch of science whatsoever.  Go back and get a fucking education (but, apparently, not in South Dakota).  And while you're at it, learn to understand and appreciate the difference between affect and effect.

Not much we can follow that up with, but this is a pretty awesome example of those great old Con family values:

Meet newly minted Rep. Daniel Stout.

His campaign Web site touts his conservative, pro-family bona fides. "I believe Paulding County wants someone who will stand strong for the conservative principles we've always believed in ... lower taxes, limited government, personal responsibility, and valuing Life from the womb until natural death," he says. 

But, as the writer Tom Crawford of Capitol Impact noted this week, Stout "has been compelled to address a personal incident from 10 years ago: he had an affair with his first wife's mother while his first wife was pregnant with their daughter. Stout and his first wife subsequently divorced."

No shit, huh?

I look forward with breathless anticipation to the day when Mr. Stout explains to us all why marriage is a sacred institution between a man, a woman, and his woman's mother.
