Hopefully she has a strong back, but because she sure isn't going to do any heavy mental lifting.

(Either that or she has a Futurama-esque brain slug tucked in there somewhere...)

I think my IQ just took a 10 point hit.

I want a vegetable tree.

MedicMatthew said...

Wait, what? We have slaves here on the East Coast?? And what exactly is like, um, the free, you know, stuff, that's she's, like, you know, talking about?

Screw waterboarding, make people watch that, they'll tell you ANYTHING you want to know just to make it stop.

And she votes

The crops need BRAWNDO!

Damn, the bell curve is real!

Shawn said...

I feel sorry for those council people. This is mental torture. I can't even laugh at this she's so stupid. It's like hearing fingernails on glass.

I have to say it even though it may cause me some grief but I have to wonder if she dyed her blonde hair black for today.

Rick O'Shea said...

I made it 31 seconds...

Jason Smith said...

I kept wishing I could pan the camera around so I could see the faces of the other people in the room.

And who is the ONE person who clapped when she was done? I hope that was a clap of celebration that she was finished.

JP said...

I could only take a few seconds. Forget waterboarding indeed!

yikes

phlegmfatale said...

I got a giggle watching the faces of the men in the background. What's really scary is that based on the changing cast of characters in the background, she must have gone on for more than 2:34. I'd lay big money on her having sampled large portions of California's biggest cash crop.

Is it just me, or does Obama have a new member to his economic team!

Rafa said...

I've been trying to think of something clever to say to that, but I think the stupid shot right through the series of tubes and into my brain.

JD said...

How has she managed to live this long??? with that kind of brain power I would have thought a bus would have hit her years ago. .

BobG said...

Reminds me of some of the dumbass twits I used to run into in the late sixties. They usually had names like "Heatherglow", or "Moonblossom", and were stoned out of their minds.

Bruce B. said...

Breda, Thank you. Been sick all week and this got me laughing. Laughter is the best medicine after all. :-)

I can't imagine sitting on the City Council and being able to keep a straight face through all of that.

Robert Langham said...

My biggest sadness about this video is that she is giving women with really big tits a bad rap.
Oh, the HUMANITY!

Chris M said...

Oh, we do indeed need a perfect pesticide for the crops that's good for people. Absolutely!

If laughing at that two+ minutes of vacuity wasn't enough, check out the longer version with other equally vapid but sincere citizens.

I watched 43 seconds last night. I had to turn it off because I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep if I watched any more. It was just too painful.

In those 43 seconds I began having second thoughts about my opposition to forced sterilization.

I figure the average person temporarily looses about 20 IQ points when they get up in front of a crowd (T.V. camera, radio microphone, etc.). Either she lost a lot more than the average person or she only had about 75 points to begin with.

Greg in Allston said...

Yikes!! If I wasn't sure before, I am now...Yes indeed, Mildred, we are doomed, completely, utterly doomed. The only thing that may save us is if we nuke California right now, but I'm afraid the cancer has metastasized.

Bruce B. said...

Reflectoscope - She is speaking before the Santa Cruz City council. Same town where the local UC Santa Cruz students voted to be known as the "Banana Slugs"

Earl said...

I was just posting a bit about San Francisco not welcoming me, and now I have one more thing to thank God for. And it was Free!

how does Google do it?

willandleigh said...

How much does it say for the council that they let her go on that long WITHOUT laughing her off the podium?
Either they are extremely patient, sincerely believe that she has the right to speak, or worse, they think she is right?
And if I don't have slaves, does that mean that I am the slave?

Brad K. said...

I am not sure which is scarier - picking out what this lady, rattled about speaking in public, intended to say - or that the counsel is so used to this kind of comment they take it is stride.

I like the bit about getting a more effective pesticide for organic crops. I was surprised no one called her on the "land is free" nonsense - it is all taxed, sometimes by state, and local, and water district, and sometimes by other authorities, too.

She seemed to be advocating the transition to local economies and local food production advocated by Peak Oil and Transition communities. She seems to agree it makes sense, but isn't quite ready yet to present the topic on her own.

*sigh* Good intentions just don't seem to be enough to equal good communication skills.

Lorimor said...

Comrade Marx would have found her useful.

fast richard said...

Wells was wrong. We are clearly breeding Eloi, but the working class jobs that were supposed to lead to the Morlocks have been outsourced overseas.

I suppose, though that once the Eloi are no longer good for anything else but food, something will evolve to eat them.

Comrade Marx?

Groucho?

This is Frank Zappa's Valley Girl song taken to it's most horrible extreme....

She's an Obama Girl! She's an OBAMA girl!!!

Ladies and gentleman. May I present the next Miss South Carolina.

Assrot said...

Sorry Breda, I try to be open minded to everything and everyone but I just can't force myself to listen to "stupid bimbos".

I had to stop at the 45 second mark or bite a bullet.

I'm still trying to figure out what she said.

Joe

I'd do her under the vegetable tree...

Anonymous said...

Relax, y'all. She may not be as articulate as Obama, but giver her some time with a speaking coach, keep the message the same, and she'll sound exactly like any Democrat politician. Where else do you think she got these ideas? -- Lyle

Chris M said...

I wonder if she knows yet that she's now famous. And I wonder if she has the sense to be embarrassed.

Dru said...

I'd like to know where this new land is, so I can move there from the east coast with my gaggle of slaves and grow vegetable trees.

Sarah (pointypen.com) said...

Now that I've seen this, I'm convinced that stupidity is painful...for onlookers, not perpetrators, unfortunately.

Scott said...

"Be polite, please."
Your own words. OK. Apply it to all comments.
Clearly the Santa Cruz city council has seen a lot of this crap. The instantaneous gavel at the end and "next speaker please" says it all. They're tired of this shit too.
Just consider it counterpoint to anyone of your choice of wack job birther videos.

Breda I am disappointed in you, I didn't think you were the kind of person who would hold the disabled up for ridicule. Do you think she really wants to be that stupid? anon jerry

This comment is so full of win.

Living proof that the size of the tits is inversely proportional to the size of the brain!

Well, that certainly explains California to the rest of the nation.

This is proof that not all dumbs are blonde!

Want to have a spelling bee, Olive Oyl?

The scary thing that every one here has missed, is the fact that she and others like her are allowed to vote. Here in Santa Barbara they use the same logic on the UC Santa Barbara students to past BS on the ballot all the time.
Thank god my children know how to think (read and speak) for them selves.

aaah Santa Cruz...home of UC Santa Cruz...(mascot is Banana Slug) ex chancellor of the university gave her girlfriend things from uni funds ,when it came to light she dove off one of the buildings roofs...if Santa Cruz wasn't the original den for mary jane it sure didn't miss it by much...

Adrian K said...

Hehehe.

Working in the wealthy suburbs of Seattle, I can assure that the stupidity has spread all up & down the Coast.

They're all very pretty and easy on the eyes, but you need to wear earplugs to prevent the urge to hang yourself from the nearest lightpost or tree branch.

Augusta Water Cooler said...

Wow, I'd bet that velcro confusses her. Some of you have wondered why the City Council allowed her to go on as long as she did? Well I'll give them the benifit of the doubt that they were simply being proffesional, but remember this is the same state that that gave us Waxman, Pelosi, and boxer.

Chris M said...

"[R]emember this is the same state that that gave us Waxman, Pelosi, and Boxer."

hehe. Good point. But chilling to think that she may be part of a voting majority there. Still, it does help explain how we get such mental giants as the aforementioned lawmakers into office.

"I want a vegetable tree."

Well I want a machine to build me a vegetable tree with organic pesticides for free on land I can sell at the farmers market so I can be rich.
