Imbecile/Arsehole

I asked a question on Twitter a few minutes ago upon seeing this. How are people so impossibly stupid and why do they insist on running for public office?

God bless the Snopes people. All day every day they get to hear nothing but the dumbest things from everyone’s most out to lunch relatives and Facebook friends, and then they get to research all of it. Whatever they’re paid, it’s not enough.

That link up there, for instance. Some poor sap legitimately had to write an entire fact check just because some dipshit Republican thought it a good idea to score political points by shitting out a tweet claiming that there are no pronouns in the United States Constitution.

And there aren’t any in the bible, either.

Take that, transgender people! You’re lucky I’m even calling you people! Get outa here with your she/her shit! Freedom!

Anywho, you’ll be stunned to learn that both of these things are false. The Constitution thing is so false, in fact, that the first word in the whole damn thing is a pronoun.

Many have pointed out that the Constitution is filled with pronouns, however. 
Merriam-Webster defines pronouns as “any of a small set of words (such as I, she, he, you, it, we, or they) in a language that are used as substitutes for nouns or noun phrases and whose referents are named or understood in the context.” 
Indeed, pronouns are a necessary part of the English language, and the Constitution famously begins with the pronoun “We”: 
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Lavern Spicer has never read the Constitution or the bible. As long as you’re just smart enough to hit the right notes and work up a big enough batch of voting age people even dumber than you are come election time, why put in the effort?

Politics can really bum a guy out sometimes.
