It's NOT the racism, stupid!

County Supervisor Peggy West

“On a video that has quickly gone viral, County Supervisor Peggy West told attendees at a county meeting that if Arizona shared a border with Mexico, she would have to re-think her position on boycotting Arizona's immigration law. The problem, however, is that Arizona does indeed share a border with Mexico, just like Texas, New Mexico and California [do]. The video of West's remarks circulated on YouTube where it received nationwide attention from political pundits like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, and a hoarde of Arizona blogs and newspapers. Local personalities like Charlie Sykes and Mark Belling also spent considerable time poking fun at it. Belling said that in his 21 years of doing his program, this was the dumbest thing any Milwaukee liberal has ever said. He went on to say how sorry he was for County Executive Scott Walker for having to deal with people like her on the County Board.”

It's not the racism. It's also not about political affiliation, cultural demographic, socio-economic status, or ancestry.

It's the stupidity, stupid.

As, arguably, the only historical figure of the modern era who is unanimously acknowledged to have been not stupid, Albert Einstein once quipped, "Two things are infinite — the universe and human stupidity. And I am not sure about the universe."
