    You mean he's just pretending to be an idiot?  

    We should have destroyed the presidency before Obama took office. Too late now.

      in her relationship with Zaphod was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldn't be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending to be outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he actually didn't understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid.

        of the future, following our current trajectory of politician devolution and related developments in gene slicing and those altering critical climate and environmental factors.  Our current crop of Republicans still has some de-evolution to proceed before attaining to that nuanced state of being multi-headed yet idle-brained heads of state, although it now seems near certain we'll have whatever it may take to generate a cranially fissionable near Zaphod-grade Republican 'leader' in the coming generation or soon after.

        Are you saying that DeMint fulfills the words of Scripture, namely the Hithchiker's Guide to the Galaxy?!?!  Is Inhofe but a voice crying in the wilderness of Oklahoma?  Great are the signs and wonders!  Any day now, three foolish men shall appear from the 5th Dimension bearing gifts for the idiot child!

        That we have lived to see the day!
