The Stupidest Thing You'll See All Day (Barring a Presidential Press Conference)

Compared to the stupidity you're about to read, trying to sail around the world in this would be Einsteinian genius.

In today's LA Times, courtesy of acknowledged moron Jonah Goldberg, we get this:
We know now that invading Iraq was the wrong decision, but that doesn't vindicate the antiwar crowd.
You know I didn't make that up, because I don't have the time or the energy for shit like that.

I'm sure he thought he was being clever when he wrote that.

It's not buried in the column. Oh, no. That's the subheader. He was proud of that puppy.

What could you say that would approach that level of stupidity?

How about "We know now that smoking causes cancer, but that doesn't vindicate the people who told you not to smoke," for starters? Not stupid enough? You're right.

Maybe "We know now that repeatedly punching yourself in the balls causes incredible pain, but that doesn't vindicate the people who told you to put down the brass knuckles."

Nope, still not stupid enough. I guess I'll go read an Ann Coulter book while listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio and watching Sean Hannity on TV. While pounding a fifth of Wild Turkey.
Perhaps then I'll be up to the challenge.
