In today’s news from the unbelievably stupid part of the country:

Tennessee lawmaker says we should eliminate higher education because colleges and universities are nothing but  “liberal breeding ground.”

In September, State Senator Kerry Roberts (R-Springfield, BS, Lipscomb U.) declared that he wanted to eliminate higher education.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Republican Tennessee lawmaker says he supports getting rid of higher education because he argues it would cut off the “liberal breeding ground.”

Sen. Kerry Roberts of Springfield called for eliminating higher education while speaking about attending a recent abortion legislative hearing on his conservative radio talk show on Sept. 2.

Roberts specifically called out one activist who testified in favor of protecting abortion rights. He asserted without evidence that the woman’s beliefs were a “product of higher education” and claimed that getting rid of higher education would “save America.

I don’t understand why a jackass must bray like a jackass and call attention to the fact that he is a jackass.  But, then, this guys is a Republican . . . what else should we expect??
