Webster’s New Dictionary Definition for Stupid and Ignorant

webster-dictionaryIn listening to the  reasoning given by Senators Susan Collins and Arlen Specter, one can only conclude that these may be the two most stupid and ignorant human beings in the United States of America.  In order to find out if there was any truth to this, I consulted Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary and found the two following entries:

  

Main Entry:  stu·pidarlen-specter

1 a: slow of mind : obtuse b: given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner c: lacking intelligence or reason : brutish2: dulled in feeling or sensation : torpid <still stupid from the sedative>3: marked by or resulting from unreasoned thinking or acting : senseless <a stupid decision>4 a: lacking interest or point <a stupid event> b: vexatious , exasperating <the stupid car won’t start>  See Senator Arlen Specter

 

Main Entry:  ig·no·rantsusan-collins

1 a: destitute of knowledge or education <an ignorant society> ; also : lacking knowledge or comprehension of the thing specified <parents ignorant of modern mathematics> b: resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or intelligence <ignorant errors>2: unaware , uninformed  See Senator Susan Collins

 

If you listen to these two speak on the subject of the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act”  (Stimulus Package) you will find yourself shaking your head and wondering how in the heck these two are sitting U.S. Senators with the ability to bankrupt future generations of Americans.  It’s utterly inconceivable.

 

Some of you may wonder why I haven’t included Senator Olympia Snowe in the above descriptions.  The simple fact is that Senator Snowe is neither stupid nor ignorant.  I disagree with the stance she is taking on the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” but she speaks intelligently on the subject and deserves the right to hold her informed intellectual opinion.  She may find herself in the future regretting her decision, but she at least made it with a command of the subject matter unlike her two colleagues Senators Specter and Collins who have absolutely no idea what they support and do not possess the intellect to ever understand it.

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more. Voting to spend more than several world economies requires significantly more justification than “the economists say that we have to do something.”
    I am working on starting an organization to disseminate all of the same kinds of messages you have in your blog. We need help. If you are interested email me.
