Republicans Making Idiocracy Come TrueSeptember 10th, 2009
For those of you who’ve never seen the movie Idiocracy, it’s set in a dystopian future where mankind has devolved into a mess of stupidity. Like much of Mike Judge’s work, the parody is extreme and so far beyond believability that it’s not meant to be taken entirely seriously. Or is it?
Last night, Republican congressman Joe Wilson from South Carolina interrupted President Obama’s speech on Health Care by shouting out “You Lie!” while Obama was talking. Eerily, this exchange was predicted fairly accurately in Idiocracy three years earlier.
When the president in the film is giving a speech on the dire state of the nation, and says he has a solution and is immediately cut off by two members of the ” House of Representin’ ” from none other than the state of South Carolina who’s brilliant additions are:
South Carolina Representative # 1: That’s what you said last time, dipshit!
South Carolina Representative # 2: Yeah, I got a solution, you’re a dick! South Carolina, what’s up!
Apparently, no level of parody or exaggeration is too far off from the inappropriate & stupid behavior Republicans are capable of.
