Bill Maher bemoaned the resurgence of the "smart stupid person" during his New Rules segment on Real Time this Friday evening. After explaining that this is nothing new, Maher ran down the recent list which includes the like of Dr. Ben Carson, who is a brilliant surgeon, but also believes the earth is 6000 years old, likened homosexuality to bestiality and said the Bible calls for a flat tax.
And then there's Antonin Scalia, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal, who are all, as Maher described them, accomplished scholars on the outside, and a creamy layer of Michele Bachmann on the inside.
Maher wrapped things up by going after the "know-nothing" doctors like Scott DesJarlais, Paul Broun and Tom Coburn, who as Maher noted, are OBGYN's but "know nothing about reproduction." He wasn't through with the list of wingnut OBGYN's yet though. He went on to go after Ron Paul, Michael Burgess, and last but not least, Phil Gingrey.
MAHER: Let's ask the more important question. Why are we electing so many gynecologists to Congress? If having your head between a woman's legs is a qualification for public office, then why not Congressman Michael Douglas?
I don't think the problem with those clowns is having their heads between women's legs. It's having it up their own posteriors.
