John Wiley Price, King of Idiots

This is already doing the rounds elsewhere, but the innate stupidity of Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price is so monumental that it’s worth re-posting as often as possible.
This guy makes Rep. Corrine Brown look intelligent. If you really want to know what made Price go berserk on this occasion (not that it ever takes much, judging by his reputation), then this article explains it.
As for me, I’m interested in how strictly Price adheres to the Left’s the-louder-I-shout-the-more-right-I-am stratagem. What a petulant brat. Histrionics of this kind might excite the brainless base, but you’re otherwise just exposing your own idiocy, JWP. He’s a sure-fire inclusion in the next round-up of Lesser-Known Democratic Kleptocrats.
Not that eruptions of this kind are unusual for him. He broke the ankle of a white construction worker in 1991, and shamelessly played the race card in his own defense. His lawyer, Billy Ravkind, joined in the fun and games, helpfully explaining that,
Race has got everything to do with everything.
Which really clears up a lot of things for me. Even better still, Price was subsequently acquitted “amid speculation that a guilty verdict might have sparked the kind of racial violence that recently struck Los Angeles.”
So much for equality before the law.
If Price seems familiar, that’s because he’s the dunce who threw a wobbly when the very same fellow commissioner (Kenneth Mayfield) said “black-hole” in front of him last year:
Which then prompted another guy in the vicinity to jump on the solidarity bandwagon and demand an apology for the insensitivity with which “black-hole” was uttered.
I don’t even know where to begin.
Is it possible for a nation to survive deliberate stupidity of this depth?
