Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Daniel, I see your citation of stupidity and raise you one: The chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus (wasn't he a buddy of Lando Calrissian?), just called Obama "our own little Captain Schettino."

So, Obama is apparently:
1) Planning on fleeing the US as it sinks. Perhaps Darth Priebus belies he is going to apply for the presidency of Kenya?
2) And Obama is just a "little" Schettino! He does not even have the stature we can accord to the Italian captain!

Sidenote: At the Wikipedia page on the Costa Concordia disaster, one passenger is quoted as saying: "The boat started shaking. The noise — there was panic, like in a film, dishes crashing to the floor, people running, people falling down the stairs."

Today, our films do not imitate real life panics: our real life panics imitate films.
