The level of stupid among TEA Party Republican candidates running for office this cycle is certainly astounding. We have seen this before in legislative races, but for some reason the GOP primary for the Governor has attracted some of the absolute stupidest human beings that have ever lived. Every now and then, one of them miraculously gets an article in the local newspaper.
This is the case of Bob Fanning and Chuck Baldwin, who recently took legal action that will appeal to a certain key GOP voting bloc: bigoted conspiracy theory morons, or, as they are called in TEA Party circles “states’ rights advocates.”
The TEA Party Republicans are suing to change the way census figures are used to draw congressional districts. They say by following the Constitutional mandate to include undocumented workers in the count, a black person who some call President Barack Obama is “rigging the census.” It’s a “monstrous” conspiracy to dilute the political power of citizens who live in districts with lots of white people, such as Montana.
“This rigging will keep Montana from having a second congressional representative,” Baldwin said. “If the illegals in California, Texas and Florida are not included, then Montana will receive two congressional seats and four electoral votes. Under Obama’s rigging plan, Montana will continue to have only one congressional seat and three electoral votes.”
If Fanning and Baldwin are successful, undocumented workers won’t be counted when Congressional delegations are counted, meaning they would be paying taxes without being represented within their state.
Perhaps Fanning and Baldwin were home-schooled, otherwise they would surely be aware of a certain fight over this involving events known as the Boston TEA Party and the Revolutionary War.
