How stupid are people?

I understand jokes. I happen to be a very funny guy. But I don't get WHY adults, seemingly educated adults, do NOT understand that you cannot put anything on Algore's interwebs and keep it a 'secret'.
Here's another instance where some 'adult' thought they could send a racial charged joke out and NOT have it go to global. Stupid.
Marilyn Davenport, a Tea Party activist and member of the Orange County Republican Party’s central committee, is drawing fire from people in her own party after circulating a racist email depicting President Barack Obama and his parents as chimpanzees. In the email: “Now you know why — No birth certificate!”

The OC Weekly broke the story and were able to reach Davenport for comment. Her response:

"Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people–mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it.”


OK, I don't think it's funny. But NOT because of the 'racial' overtones. I don't think it's funny, because it's not. What's funny is Ms. Davenport's defense of her stupidity.
"...mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it."
Yeah, seriously, I doubt your friends are as dumb and as you are Marilyn. Or at least, I HOPE they aren't that dumb!
Who knows, to offset this in the MSM, maybe Bill Ayers will send a PhotoShop'd picture of a mushroom cloud over the Pentagon, to Obama and it will 'leak' to the Tea Party.

Something keeps bothering me, and the comments on started it all over again.

People talk about Odumbo being the "2nd" nigroid president of the USA after John Hanson during the times of the Articles of Confederation.

That argument holds the same water as Miles Standish or William Reade being the first US president.

The first and easiest argument is that the United States of America did not exist until 1789, and Geo. Washington was the first president of the country created by that document.

Now, the military does track its unit lineage through various actvations and deactivations to include name changes, but creating an entirely new political entity does not change who the leaders were of that new entity.

Maybe Julius Ceasar was the first US president since many of the laws we were founded upon originated with his government?

Alan, when they say he's "the 2nd black president", what they are refering to is the fact that Bubba Clinton was called "America's first black president" because of his endless attempts at pandering to blacks.

Technically speaking, the Marxist-in-Chief is not really America's first black president, since he's only half black, something that blacks normally look down upon, unless you're the guy who holds the keys to the govternments "free goodie bag".

I meant Bill Clinton. Remember all the blacks who said HE might as well be black. He IS our first black President.


And you're right about the Confederation and Washington IS our first official President.
