More Texas stupid

Posted: April 10, 2009 in america, clueless, republicans, stupid

Just when you thought our elected representatives couldn’t get any more stupid, we have this from Texas:

The comments caused the Texas Democratic Party on Wednesday to demand an apology from state Rep. Betty Brown, R-Terrell. But a spokesman for Brown said her comments were only an attempt to overcome problems with identifying Asian names for voting purposes.

The exchange occurred late Tuesday as the House Elections Committee heard testimony from Ramey Ko, a representative of the Organization of Chinese Americans.

Ko told the committee that people of Chinese, Japanese and Korean descent often have problems voting and other forms of identification because they may have a legal transliterated name and then a common English name that is used on their driver’s license on school registrations.

The left has reacted with predictable and inappropriate rage, calling Brown out for “racism” and accusing her of being “insensitive” and “disrespectful”.

Isn’t it possible that she’s just stupid?  Or ignorant?

I mean, what good old, easy-to-deal-with, “American” names did she have in mind?  Blagojevich?  Schwarzenegger?  Wozniak?


What an idiot.  This kind of ignorance could only come from a Republican.
