The recalled Arizona senate president who proposed the state’s controversial anti-immigration law said he could fix public assistance programs by forcibly sterilizing women who receive aid and by requiring drug tests for all recipients…
[Russell Pearce] suggested drastic cuts to food assistance for needy families…
He also suggested Spartan accommodations and strict rules for anyone who received government housing assistance.
“Ever live in a military barracks?” he said. “You’ll maintain your property in a clean, good state of repair, and your home will be subjected to an inspection at any time, possessions will be inventoried…”
Here’s some more about Mr. Compassionate Conservatism:
Pearce, who lost a 2011 recall election over ethics concerns and his sponsorship of the controversial anti-immigration law [SB-1070], claimed on his job application to his recent post that he attended graduate school at the University of Arizona – which said he had not.
Pearce accepted but didn’t report nearly $40,000 in paid junkets and college football tickets from Fiesta Bowl officials while helping them receive state subsidies.
He also claims to have attended graduate school at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, although he apparently overstated his participation.
A Harvard spokesman told the newspaper Pearce had attended a three-week seminar there in 1996, but he never enrolled in the Kennedy School’s graduate program.
Alaska Governor-resignee Sarah Palin further cemented her status as the Yo Yo Ma of Stupid on Thursday night’s Hannity program, where she delivered a virtuoso performance of such achingly beautiful idiocy that all the Stooges in heaven could but weep. Aside from asserting that the president should be taking speech suggestions from ISIS, Palin also delivered what she probably thought was a bombshell bit of sly satire when she offered an apology that isn’t quite what liberals had in mind. Pay attention, also, to the way Palin manages to perform one amazing feat of stupidity with her mouth, while her hands are doing an entirely different, unrelated set of dipshittery at the same time. Stunning.
