Slicing Pi

By Daphne On March 22nd, 2011 at 11:31 pm

I’ve come to the conclusion that most folks elected to office are mentally defective. Doesn’t matter if they’re riding the liberal or conservative rail, the ponce fools running the show seem to be cognitively dysfunctional, sometimes on levels too bizarre for comprehension.

Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Ala.) is sponsoring HR 205, The Geometric Simplification Act, declaring the Euclidean mathematical constant of pi to be precisely 3.

“That long-held empirical value of pi, I am not saying it should be necessarily viewed as wrong, but 3 is a lot better,” said Roby, the 34-year old legislator representing Alabama’s second congressional district, ushered into office in the historic 2010 Republican mid-term bonanza

Roby, raised in Montgomery, Ala., is on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and the Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education.

“It’s no panacea, but this legislation will point us in the right direction. Looking at hard data, we know our children are struggling with a heck of a lot of the math, including the geometry incorporating pi,” Roby said. “I guarantee you American scores will go up once pi is 3. It will be so much easier.

Yes, I snipped that bite down to the bone of contention.

The nitwittery continued when crybaby Boehner weighed in with this beauty.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) ridiculed objections from the left as further examples of classic elitist liberalism.

Sanity help us.
