Quote of the Day

"Rather than everyone here having to learn Chinese — I understand it’s a rather difficult language — do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?"—Texas state rep Betty Brown offering her solution to ease the voting process for Asian Americans in Texas.

I have a better idea. I think the entire population of the US should change their names to a wonderfully American, wholesome and easy-to-pronounce name, like "Betty Brown." That way, whenever we post daily about random asshattery, we can attribute the stupidity to Betty Brown.
