Stupid Is As Stupid Does

 

As you've seen in my FB page, a US senator was teaching a class at the Univ of Arizona when a female (?student) followed her into the rest room, and despite her closing the stall door, stood outside it and delivered a harangue about "pathway to citizenship," while a bystander filmed it on their phone.

I don't know what bothers me most--the lack of logic shown by the person who delivered the diatribe telling how her grandparents were removed from the US (they were illegal, for goodness sake), the lack of common sense that someone would deliver such a harangue in the rest room, or the fact that an individual would include in their arguments "we got you elected, and we can take you down."

Yes, the proper venue for expressing your opinion to an elected official is via your vote, and if you can influence others to vote the same way, then power to you. But this way is ridiculous.

I hope every one will vote their conscience in a bit over a year, and that they'll go about electioneering the right way before then. But not this way! What do you think?

You can't fix stupid! Does no one have a sense of what's proper and what's not anymore?

It's horrible behavior.

And did these illegal residents get her elected and plan to get her out of office with illegal votes? Are these horrible people the cream of the illegal crop? How disgusting that our country has now come to this.

Thanks, Patricia, Priscilla, and Nancy--I now note that the AZ legislature is looking into this incident--I hope they agree that this is terrible behavior (whether we agree with Sen Sinema or not; that's not the point).
