Utah: Stupid Is As Stupid Does

State Senator Chris Buttars (R—Dumbfuck) has come up with a brilliant plan for the state of Utah to save money. That there edumucation ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. Let’s eliminate the 12th grade.

Next stop: Libraries. Who needs ‘em???

Chris Buttars explained his reasoning with:

“When I was done gone wit my pappy and are cousins and them there might coulda been done and had me a big ol’ — uhh, where was I?”

Previous quotes from Chris Buttars include:

“Homosexuality will always be a sexual perversion. And you say that around here now and everybody goes nuts. But I don't care. They're mean. They want to talk about being nice. They're the meanest buggers I have ever seen.”

And here is a 44-second YouTube of Buttars’ infamous “Black Baby” quote.

Here is a Google Search link to some other Chris Buttars trivia. Knock yourself out.

If you've followed Buttars, this is no surprise at all. He's been an interesting idiot to watch.

JR: I read another blog post about him a year or 2 ago; one of his homophobic rants.

Bee: Prune-faced and bigoted.

Why do all these nutcases look the way they do. All sour faced and not in a good way. Well the Foxness monster has done a poll that shows educashion is making libruls of people. All that book learning makes you think, so there would be no more pubbies.

Jess: That there booklarnin' is causing a heap o' trouble. Where will the next generation of workerbees come from if them young folks start thinking for themselves and asking questions?

Lew: Yup, another step. And we don't have far to go.

Tom, I don't know if I have told you guys here but Bee knows. I went back to school to get a teaching credential so when I am done, I will be responsible for guiding young minds. Does this make you a little scared for the future? It is sending one of my more righty friends into a tailspin, that I could possibly educate a mind and change it for the better. Hell I hope it makes people question more and not just take the word of whoever is spouting the nonsense.

Lew, I went and looked at the citizenship test, after the Tancredo rant about literacy tests for voters. It was just a sample of the questions, people have to answer when they want to become citizens. I could put money on it that most of these idiots would not be able to pass it.

Buttars had the qualities and sensitivity that would make all of the Congressional delegation from South Carolina extremely jealous.

Jess: OMG, you're one of them edumucation ivory tower elitists????

(Sorry, I had just had to get that in there)

Teaching has to be the most underpaid and un-thanked job that ever was. My wife did the teaching credential program in the mid-'80s. It took a year and a half and it has to be the most grueling job (since there was no pay) ever invented. The rest of the world must wonder why America makes teaching the most difficult job to attain, and requires the most hoop-jumping imaginable just to be qualified for the job. Or maybe they don't wonder at all, and that's why America is the Al Bundy of the world.

Holte: Supposedly the southern states have a saying "thank God for Mississippi," meaning that no matter how backward we are, Mississippi will always be lower and more backward than us. Utah might be pushing Mississippi out of that coveted position.

Holte, that's an excellent observation.

Buttars is obviously a carbuncle on the scabrous hide of Utah politics. But what is really appalling and more than a little scary is that X-number of Utah citizens voted to elect this creep. So, he's certainly not unique.

Great Worst Person fodder for Olbermann, though. :)

Good.For.You. I'm sure you'll be valued by students and a credit to the profession.

Why not just eliminate the last 4 grades cause most of em don't make it that far anyway. That way they'll get more rethuglicans canstitchants.

Good on you Jess. Education takes a progressive open mind to be effective. Now if you can deal with the school politics and the ever deteriorating standards you're home free.
They wanted to lower the passing grade here to a D to graduate and cut back on requirements.

Good luck

Wow. Remind me never ever to go to Utah, because somewhere very stupid people are voting for this fuck.

SW: "a carbuncle on the scabrous hide of Utah politics." Well said. And yes it's scary that so many voters kept re-electing him.

Demeur: I'm sure that'll be their next step, eliminating grade after grade. The less educated the voters are, the easier it is to manipulate them.

Carlos: True, as contemptible as that senator is, he keeps getting enabled by the dumbass voters who elected him.
