How did this clueless dumbass ever get past High School?

You've really got to see this video to believe it. Senator Joe Barton from Texas (so already you know where this is going ...) thought it would be a good chance to finally learn about something that's always confused him: how did the oil under Alaska ... get there?

Sweet Shit of Jesus, I'm not even kidding. This moron – a man elected into public office who represents the people of Texas – is stumped by a question any High School student could answer (though not without laughing their asses off at him, too). Which once again shines a good furious light on the fact that Republicans are becoming increasingly transformed into clueless ignorant arrogant idiots.

Why arrogant? Because he thought it would be a good idea to ask such a puzzling, stumping query to none other than Steven Chu, the Nobel Prize-winning Energy Secretary of the US. I think that if you listen hard enough, you could hear Chu's eyes tear up from the effort needed not to burst out laughing. (Along with half the room's.)

Now that Barton moron posted this video up on his YouTube account (jeez, any idiot can get a video broadcasting account these days ...), apparently under the impression he stumped the energy secretary, a man who knows more about, well, energy and geology, than most other men combined. Also, you may be (not) surprised to find that comments have been disabled. Another clue that we're dealing with a clueless Republican here: not allowed to comment on their lethal stupidity levels.
