    Not all stupid people are conservative, but all conservatives are stupid.

    Only conservatives say stupid things like "get back to your knitting" and "legitimate rape". Totally out of touch.

    All conservatives are stupid? Would you like to retract that? Extremist that call themselves "conservative", then yes. But ALL Conservatives? Really?

    You don't want me to start posting YouTube videos of the extreme left saying just as stupid crap. I'll give you the opportunity to adjust the statement before I do.

    The worms are crawling out of the woodwork in N.Carolina now. What a shame, the state was finally starting to rise up from the bottom of the barrel and now the worms are trying to sink it back down.

    Yes, I do. I want you to post Youtube videos of legitimate Democratic leaders saying something as stupid as "legitimate rape" and "death counsels". I dare you.

    Now, put up or shut up!

    This is just a classic though, everyone says dumb stuff, but you have to be a special kind of ignorant for this kind of screw up.

    Stam's comment came after the superintendent, June Atkinson, expressed her belief to reporters that private schools and public schools in the state should take the same standardized tests. He said she should focus on her mandate of helping public schools, according to North Carolina outlet The News & Observer.

    Think he would have said the same to a man?
    two points

    1. atkinson makes an excellent suggestion. the perception is that private schools out-perform public schools. that is sometimes true. especially jesuit run schools. but it is often incorrect. evangelical-Christian schools tend to perform poorly when compared to public schools. use the same test the public schools use to also measure the private school achievement. the private schools can also use other tests, should they choose to do so, but they should be expected to have their students' performance evaluated against public schools; otherwise, how would it become known the school was extremely inferior and in need of intervention

    2. 'stick to the knitting'' is an old expression, meaning stick to what one knows best, rather than take on new assignments. in the business world it is frequently used to describe a business that strays from what made it - or its owner - successful
    this was not an unkind, sexist comment

    Jesus man, is this the best you can do. The guy was speaking in hyperbole. So you think the Guam Islanders were insulted?

    You need to try harder.

    And no, everybody does not say stupid things that insult and marginalize whole groups of people, including half the population that are made up of women. Conservatives do. But not everybody.

    You might be right, except that Stam has a history of saying stupid degrading things that attack groups of people.

    Even knowing that, it was an insult insinuating she didn't know what she was talking about.
