Dipshit of the day

Dave Brat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA)

While explaining why he believes that funding for education should be cut, Brat crapped out this gem of logic:

 “Socrates trained Plato in on a rock and then Plato trained in Aristotle roughly speaking on a rock. So, huge funding is not necessary to achieve the greatest minds and the greatest intellects in history.”

Oh, of course! Oh, it's so simple! How did we not see this?

Instead of spending a bunch of money on schools, all we have to do is give each student a rock!

And then hire a brilliant philosopher to be a personal tutor/teacher/mentor for each student. Each student gets a rock and his own personal genius to take him under his wing and mold him. How much could that possibly cost?

Gosh, it's almost like he wants to return to a time when education was a luxury of the wealthy!

It's not easy working the word buffoon into a conversation, but this numb nuts makes it obligatory. As in, Dave Brat is a rock solid buffoon.

A message many want to hear and want. A metaphor for getting rid of teachers high wages and benefits.
