The Stupidity of Russell Simmons

Sometimes you read something that really makes you wonder how people think. Such was the case when I heard that Russell Simmons thought it would be a clever idea to put up a video featuring Harriet Tubman … in a sex tape. It did not take long for Simmons to understand that people viewed this as outrageous, and he pulled the video. A public apology followed.

No word yet on whether Carl Roden will follow in Simmoons’s footsteps with his adult fan fiction involving characters from Nickelodeon’s Hey Arnold. Cheer up, Carl: Connie Chastain supports your endeavors. Perhaps she’ll even write a book portraying Arnold as the victim of a false accusation.

    the Liberal Democrats are Finally showing their True Colors and their Hidden Agenda.. the Biggest Mistake this Country ever made was not Abolishing the Democratic Party, along with Slavery, in 1862..

      You do know that the Democratic party of 1862 was quite different than the Democratic party of 151 years later, right?

        Yeah. Actually anybody who had a problem with “Big Government Libs” in 1862 would have targeted the Republican Party.

      “True Colors” and “Hidden Agenda.” Sounds big. Care to enlighten this, obviously, dense individual as to what those are? I’m missing it in this context. I’m also interested in hearing how Russell Simmons represents or speaks for the Democrats.

    Well, I have to admit it took awhile for me to recognize who he was. “Oh, yeah, Def Comedy Jam.” He really compounded his stupidity in his apology, I thought. “I thought it was politically correct. Silly me. I can now understand why so many people are upset.” It strikes me as an apology in form but not intent.

    I think we need an astronomical unit equivalent for stupidity…perhaps the “Simmons Unit”?

    This “parody” would equal 1 SU.

    Marching on Moscow would equal 10 SUs.

    A land war in Asia equals 100 SUs.

    “Seceding” from the United States would equal 1000 SUs.
