Rhode Island has idiots too.

This is right up there with the rest of the stupidest things said by politicians, from Rhode Island State Rep. Douglas Gablinske, and he wasn't even the guy who came up with RI's Arizona copycat bill, it was another Rep. named Peter Palumbo.

[source] As the House speaker banged a gavel calling for Capitol Police to clear the room, Gablinske said, the young protesters chanted and draped themselves in a banner that read "Do I look like an immigrant?"

"I guess I found that somewhat strange because none of them looked like immigrants," said Gablinske. "I don't remember any Latinos there; I don't remember any African-Americans. What I remember was a group of mostly younger people -- white, Caucasian who were milling about."


Gablinske... Palumbo... Caucasian...

Of course his whole statement is scurrilous but one aspect struck me in particular. . . . Yes, it was a very interesting "immigration policy" that resulted in the "immigration" of African-Americans . . . I don't know whether to *groan* or *facepalm* . . . or both!

Mind boggling.

These people just don't get it and never will.

I don't ...this person was elected? WTF?

Elected, and at least one of them (Palumbo) is a Democrat. Not sure about the other one. It's amazing how much support there is for this kind of thing out there, and where it's coming from.
