Open mouth, insert foot

Rep. Patrick Garofalo has a big mouth, as in one who often speaks stupidly.

This man on a good day is a bad joke.

He even went so far as to double down with the dog whistle “inner-city”.

“I’ve tutored in inner-city Minneapolis” = translation: inner-city Minneapolis is not white like me

3-13-2014 – here is Ryan making the same dog call

Let’s strike up an old show tune from West Side Story and reword it for Garofalo and ilk;

“When you’re a dope,
You’re a dope all the way
From your first stupid tweet
To your last dyin’ day.

When you’re a dope,
If the gag hits the fan,
You got more fools around,
You’re a family man!

You’re never alone,
You’re Alec dope connected!
You’re home with your own:
When reason is expected,
You lie to deflect it!

Then you are set
With a capital D,
Which you’ll never forget
Till they cart you away.
When you’re a dope,
You stay a dope!”

Stupid is as stupid does Garofalo. Doubling down does not improve things.

Thanks for your feedback. If we like what you have to say, it may appear in a future post of reader reactions.
