Stupid is as stupid does

Tim James, the Republican candidate for governor in the great state of Alabama is proof that not all moronic politicians are from Arizona.  Part of his platform for election is that he'll change the exam for a state driver's license to be given in English only because as he says in the ad, "we speak English — if you want liver here, learn it." 

He says that this is important because it will save the state money in printing costs.  But like the assholes in Arizona who moved quickly to pass their state-level immigration law, he didn't quite think this through.  (Is this a pattern with all Republicans or just a great coincidence over the past year?)  In fact if Alabama, or any state, were to change their forms to English only, they'd lose federal funding which would cost them dearly. 

It seems odd that the path to government in a state from the bible belt is to sell your soul to the  devil.  He wants that nomination real bad.
