I've often objected to people who characterize our political leaders as stupid, or idiots, etc. However, after seeing and studying the recent news concerning NY's Governor Eliot Spitzer's plan to issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, I cannot do anything but join the fray.
Dear Governor Spitzer,
I have seen some very stupid things in my lifetime. I must say though, in my extensive experience with idiots, I can say that you are the consummate moron of all times. What makes you even more dangerous is that you can inflict your idiocy on a great many people, since the citizens of NY elected you Governor.
You once served as NY Attorney General. However, somewhere between that job and your election as Governor, you completely lost all common sense, intelligence, and, in essence, your mind.
In the United States I once grew up in, "illegal" was synonymous with "criminal". If you did something that was deemed "illegal", you were found and punished. In the United States that morons like you are working to create, if you do something illegal, you aren't hunted, you are invited to enjoy benefits and privileges far above and beyond those afforded to law-abiding citizens. I assume that once you make the world safe for illegal immigrants, you will be moving on to another group. Might I suggest drug dealers next? Let's face it, they suffer when the police arrest and persecute them as well. Life can be very difficult for a drug trafficker, why not turn your wise eye to their plight?
I can see it now: hordes of dangerous people jumping on planes, driving through military checkpoints, gaining access to anyplace that they can cause harm, because a simpleton such as yourself granted them the right to do just that. I wonder if the next time someone flies a plane into a building, will they have gained passage using one of your driver's licenses?
My arguments sound pretty stupid to some, I'm sure. However, not one word here could ever hope to achieve the level of stupidity that your intended plan has managed.
You are a very stupid man. You are a very dangerous man. You are a very misguided man. I just hope that the words "re-elect Spitzer" are never uttered in the future. You did not care about the citizens you represented as Attorney General, just as you care not for the citizens you represent as Governor of NY. The only compliment I will ever pay you is to congratulate you on being the first bona-fide, fully certified idiot to ever be elected.
You ought to be ashamed of yourself, you stupid, stupid man.
