How Dumb Can You Get?

Just when you think the human race couldn’t get any stupider, it gets stupider. Somehow this idiocy had escaped me till now:

A man who found six children in his driveway in Newtown, Conn., after their teacher had been shot and killed in last month's school massacre has become the target of conspiracy theorists who believe the shootings were staged.

“I don’t know what to do,” Gene Rosen told Salon.com. “I’m getting hang-up calls, I’m getting some calls, I’m getting emails with, not direct threats, but accusations that I’m lying, that I’m a crisis actor, ‘How much am I being paid?'”

Rosen, a 69-year-old retired psychologist who lives near Sandy Hook Elementary School where the shootings took place, says his inbox is filled with emails like this one:

How are all those little students doing? You know, the ones that showed up at your house after the ‘shooting’. What is the going rate for getting involved in a gov’t sponsored hoax anyway?

“The quantity of the material is overwhelming,” Rosen said, adding that he's sought the advice of a retired state police officer and plans to alert the FBI.

Sadly, yes--the human race is just a dumb as might be imagined, and dumber than can be imagined.

I'm certain that at least some of the people who are convinced Newtown was staged by Obama will soon be sticking their tongues in light sockets to find out what electricity tastes like.

I lived in Newtown for seven years back in the 1990s. It saddens me no end that the town is famous for Richard Kraft and, now, this.

People who defend the right to sell assault rifles to civilians and invoke the Second Amendment in this respect can't be *that* bright, can they?
It's a bit like the porn industry in Los Angeles filing a lawsuit against the compulsory use of condoms referring to the *First* Amendment ...
Ah, they'll probably win.
