They used to say Reagan was a dunce ...Bushes 1 and 2 were stupid ...Quayle was an idiot because he spelled potato wrong ...Now I'm in an argument with a friend of a friend on Facebook whp says his cat has more brains than Palin and Bachmann , and that Hilary has forgotten more than they know put together ! What would you saud to this jerk ? I just can't ignore him . This was my latest response :
" Typical leftist modus operandi : use the dumb card ( or race card or whatever other card is at their disposal ) ...Reagan was a dunce they said...Quayle an idiot because he spelled potato incorrectly ...Bush was a 1 and 2 were stupid ...Now Bachmann and Palin are dumb ...So predictable ...Only the left have brains ...I see ...I see all too clearly ..."
Send your friend of a friend this link.
I’d love to be as “dumb” as Michele or Sarah.
Yep.The Left has failed in everything it has attempted with no apologies or even recognition of the failures but we`re the dumb ones for sticking with the tried and true stuff.
They`ve ruined every Western society and country on Earth but they are the clever ones LOL
When I use your type of arguments with a liberal they always come back with “You are a jerk.”
Yeah. Tell him to put his cat on Facebook so you can talk to someone with a brain.
Goes back to at least Stephenson if not earlier.
Ask him if he thinks hillary knows what *is* means.
You cannot talk to these people as if they are normal. He’s pushing your buttons. Push back. Make HIS brains, (or lack thereof,) the subject.
Having a political discussion? So?
It happens. I think it’s a little childish of someone to unfriend a friend because one of their friends is having a political back and forth.
When did everyone get the vapors at the idea of political conversations?
I just ask; “got anything new?”
Liberals who destroy everything they ever get their hands on call victims of their destruction ‘dumb’...
They’ve been calling conservatives “dumb” for over 50 years!
I YAWN in their general direction.
Ooh, I like that a lot. Ridicule at its finest. :D
“Theyve been calling conservatives dumb for over 50 years!”
Strange, I had this smart/dump arguement just this weekend with a relative. We hung up on the 72 election with her claiming that Nixon was not charactarized as dumb.
Apparently it is destructive enough that it kept the Clintons from using their vaunted private detective operation from delving into Baraq's "ghost" background and blowing him out of the race.
It’s really the only thing that works with these types. Facts don’t mean anything to them. They just want to get YOU on the defensive. Don’t do it. If you get frustrated, they win.
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
Ain’t nothing says we can’t use their weapons against them. What amazes me is that they NEVER expect it.
Agree with him and then say these republicans are so stupid they think there are only 57 states...
one exception in more than 50 years...what a counterpoint!...though, it’s probably only a half-remembered cronkite meme like quayle and potay toes
I’m stymied by that one!
if not “stupid”
“evil” suffices....tricky dick...yeah smart/ ok...evil nonetheless.
I buy none of the memes, they’re used by the left for covering up their lies.
Memes = the new word or phrase that, repeated often enough, become pseudotruth.
There’s a REASON the troops, liberating the skeletal death camps of hitler made surrounding villagers clean them up.
I sent this to the guy . Haven’t heard from him again !
