Almost forever, the record for stupidity was held by Lumbo, a Cambrian trilobyte (sic) born to an early family of retarded trilobites. Lumbo also had Down’s Syndrome. It ws an unbeatable combination. Nobody and nothing was as slow as Lumbo. It was thought that he would hold the record for all time, but then came the governor of Texas, Rick Perry. He thinks it might be a good idea to invade Mexico.
Even the Washington Post is warming up to the concept. Here there be lunacy. Fortunately, it's not likely to happen. That being said, stranger things have happened. IMHO, it would be the suicide of the US republic.
