The Coming Stupidity Crunch

Watchers of the Stupidity industry tonight expressed grave concerns on the future supplies of stupidity.

One industry watcher, who wisshed to remain anonymous, stated: "Einstein thought that stupidity was infinite, but, really, we doubt that anything is truly infinite. However, we thought we had enough for the next 100 years until this Congress started trying to 'fix' things."

The first ripples of angst over stupidity supplies came last year when, acting on advice from Ben Bernanke, Congress increased the conformiing limit on GSE loans.

"That had some the more bearish Peak Stupidity people concerned, but we still thought the supplies would be good."

Then in October, Congress passed the $700 Billion dollar bailout of bankers and other scum.

"This wouldn't have been such hit to the reservoirs, except after defining the oversight, they gave Paulson the money before the oversight was in place. There really was a giant sucking sound on that one, and we know Monica and Bill are out of town."

However, there is panic on the Dumb futures tonight, after the Senate failed to reach agreement on even a bridge loan for the formerly-big 3, upon which as many as 3,000,000 jobs depend.

"We have no idea how to function in this environment. We looked all over flyover country, and cannot find anything like the dumbass deposits we had in D.C. - we are trying to arrange imports from Europe, but if that doesn't work, we'll have to fall back on Sean Penn amd Rosie O'Donnell. We think that'll probably do it for a while."

I was wrong. D.C. has unlimited amounts of stupidity, and Obama brought more with him.

We Are So Screwed.

About Me

I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
