This week in stupid quotes

Here's a quote from a Kentuckian who voted for the Governor-elect, Republican Matt Bevin.
On Election Day, Blackburn voted for Bevin because he is tired of career politicians and thought a businessman would be more apt to create the jobs that Pike County so needs. Yet when it comes to the state’s expansion of health insurance, “it doesn’t look to me as if he understands,” Blackburn said two days later. “Without this little bit of help these people are giving me, I could probably die. . . . It’s not right to not understand something but want to stamp it out.”  Link
Oops, I guess? Nothing like voting for a guy who not only WON'T create jobs but is against raising the minimum wage, wants to eliminate pesky regulations like workplace safety rules, and, oh yeah, WANTS TO TAKE AWAY YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE. But at least you didn't vote for one of them evil Dumbocrats, amiright?  (I actually feel sorry for the guy, but come on.)

And now from a professional dumbass, Ted Cruz. From last night's Republican handjob debate.
"The biggest lie in all of Washington and in all of politics is that Republicans are the party of the rich," said Cruz, a millionaire whose wife works at Goldman Sachs. "The truth is, the rich do great with big government. They get in bed with big government. Link
Uh-huh. The rich hate the Republicans, what with all their union support, and non-racism, and healthcare for all. Yeah, the rich can't stand the Republicans.

And here's one of the worst CEOs ever, Carly Fiorina.
"We've created something called the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a vast bureaucracy with no congressional oversight that's digging through hundreds of millions of your credit records to detect fraud," Fiorina said. "This is how socialism starts, ladies and gentlemen."  Link
Of course, the records under review were sent in by CONSUMERS so that the Bureau could see if those consumers have been defrauded, but that's just a detail. No need to worry about facts when you're trying to scare low information voters about SOCIALISM!!!

 And here's Donald Trump, when asked about raising the minimum wage.
“Wages are too high,”  Link
Yes, wages in America are TOO HIGH. And he's not talking about CEOs or the rich, he's talking about people who make less than $10 an hour. Their wages are too high.

Just let that sink in.

Every time I see things like this, all I can wonder is how much cognitive dissonance can someone live with before his or her head explodes?

I know, it's amazing. It really is like these people live in a different reality. The conservative bubble is a real thing and it's killing us.
