Jim Diamond who claims to have a perfect I.Q. has put out his annual list of the Stupidest Statements Awards for what he calls crash-and-burn lapses in intelligence.
According to him, in 2005, televangelist Pat Robertson gave the years stupidest statement when he suggested U.S. agents should assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Mega Genius quips: What was that commandment of Gods again?
And this year, George W. Bushs mother, Barbara Bush, beat out her own son on the list. She earned second place on Diamonds list for stating that the underprivileged victims of Hurricane Katrina were coming out ahead of the deal by taking shelter in the Houston Astrodome.
President Bush makes the list at No. 7 though, for his quote: See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.
Finally, former Democratic nominee Al Sharpton makes the list at No. 6 for stating after he was involved in a nine-mile police car chase reaching speeds of 110 mph, That nine-mile chase is news to me.
