Another public display of stupidity

From a two-bit mayor of a one horse town. How did a guy this stupid reach this age without getting into the bathtub with a hair dryer or sticking his hand into the grass chute of a running lawn mower or any of the other thousand dumbass things product warnings are designed to prevent?

Alabama mayor resigns after slamming Crimson Tide for supporting Black Lives Matter

A mayor in Alabama has resigned after making disparaging comments about the University of Alabama's Crimson Tide football team over its support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Carbon Hill Mayor Mark Chambers submitted a resignation letter Saturday to the city clerk that stated, "I quit the job of mayor effective June 27 at 4:30 p.m.," City Attorney Steven Thomas told NBC News on Tuesday.

Carbon Hill is a city of less than 2,000 people, the majority of them white, according to the most recent census data. The city is about 60 miles northwest of Birmingham.

In a Facebook post Saturday, Chambers wrote, "I got several Alabama pictures for sale," adding that in his opinion, the Crimson Tide and its coach, Nick Saban, were "done," according to The Daily Mountain newspaper, which said it received screenshots of the remarks.

After one person commented on this post, "I think you may be right they haven't looked as good the last couple of years," Chambers replied that he was not getting rid of the photos because of the team's performance, the newspaper reported. "Their sorry a-- political views is why their getting out of my house," he wrote.

Chambers added, "When you put Black lives before all lives they can kiss my a--."

The post appeared to be in response to a two-minute video the team released Thursday featuring players and Saban reading an essay by Crimson Tide offensive lineman Alex Leatherwood, which closed with the words, "All lives can't matter until Black lives matter."

1. I am so happy he is no longer mayor. I hope he ends up washing dishes for

an AA restaurant owner in the immediate future.

2. Just one more chapter in Cosmo Kramer's latest "Astonishing Tales of Stupidity"

Proving once more that if you're stupid enough to think these things, you're certainly stupid enough to put them on social media.

4. Fairly simple concept, right?

There's a kid making the most out of his college experience. I just can't fathom why it's so difficult for that idea to sink into peoples' heads.
