We need a new word, one that can adequately represent the act of saying something so gobsmackingly stupid that all you can do when you read or hear it is stare in disbelief. Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with the dumbest thin you will read all day, maybe all year. Hell, maybe in your lifetime. Compliments of Dinesh D’Souza:
I hesitate to point this out, but I find it interesting that Martin Luther King Jr. was a LAWBREAKER who spent time in JAIL

WE LAWBREAKERS GOTTA STICK TOGETHER: I'm excited to celebrate the life and legacy of my fellow lawbreaker & jailbird Martin Luther King Jr.

Hey, you know who else spent time in jail? Charles Manson. Sirhan Sirhan. Jeffrey Dahmer. #interestingparallel, amirite? And like those men, and unlike Martin Luther King, you actually committed a crime that sent you to jail. That crime you adamantly denied, then “sincerely” admitted to and declared your undying shame at what you’d done and then went right back to claiming was trumped up and unfair. Twitter responded with the kind of humor you would expect:
AN INTERESTING PARALLEL: MLK was targeted by J. Edgar Hoover, an unsavory character; I was targeted by the equally unsavory B. Hussein Obama

@DineshDSouza in this paranoid, narcissistic fantasy of yours, when do you get shot?
