In a blog entry on, Alcee Hastings, a Democratic Congressman from Florida, is quoted as saying what is perhaps the most idiotic thing of this entire election season.  Maybe the most idiotic thing of this entire decade.  What is his quote?  Well, here you go:

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention.  Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

And if that wasn’t enough, he went on to say things like this:

“Just like Jews, blacks care about affordable health care, energy independence, and the separation of church and state, and just like blacks, Jews care about equal pay for equal work, investment in alternative energy, and a woman’s right to choose.”

When questioned about Hastings’s criticism, realizing that such a statement was nothing short of disastrous for Democrats and could pretty much do nothing but backfire, Maria Comella, the spokeswoman for Sarah Palin, simply stated, “We’re taking a pass.”
