Theresa LePore's new assistant, Donald Brown

I never thought it would be possible to get lower than Theresa LePore for public stupidity, but now Donald Brown, a state representative from De Funiak Springs, Florida, has taken the proverbial cake.
Lawmaker whistles Dixie for Confederate tag

Tallahassee Democrat

A Panhandle legislator with a proud disdain for political correctness and no fear of bucking Gov. Charlie Crist or the state Republican Party wants Florida to issue license tags honoring "Confederate Heritage" -- complete with images of Dixie flags and buttons from Rebel uniforms.

This level of stupidity is like a geographic feature: it exists and there is no use arguing against a hill or any other box of rocks. As rascally as those politicians are in Tallahassee, it looks like even they have the sense to actually put the chop on this bill. Good.
