A new record in election stupidity

Who are the dumbest people in America? The media or the politicians? It’s a close race. The new brouhaha over Schwarzenegger’s alleged statements about hot Latinas or whatever breaks all records for stupidity or political correctness – a redundancy, in any case. Of course the flames of this inane controversy are being fanned by the political party that brought you Robert Byrd, a full-fledged ex-member of the Ku Klux Klan we are asked to revere as a statesman. If this is what democracy is about, we might as well cede to Al Qaeda.

UPDATE: Bill Bradley has much more to say about this (and knows much more) on his new PajamasXpress blog. (Yes, he’s left the LA Weekly site for Pajamas.)
