Dumb Donald

In the 1970s, Bill Cosby (at the time, still beloved) came up with a TV show called Fat Albert. Basically it was morality tales that were told through cartoons, using Cosby's own childhood and a fanciful view of his friends as reference points.

There was a character called Dumb Donald, who was basically a nitwit. He's got on a too-big jersey and has a stocking covering his face. He's a good kid, and means well in the story, but he comes across as a bit of a dope.

In one episode he tells fanciful lies.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but the soon-to-be idiot in chief reminds me of Dumb Donald in many ways...

The lame list

Stupidity is something I can not tolerate. Here is my current list of dopey attitudes that chafe me. Don’t be stupid. Don’t be one of these:

  • Anti-science
  • Flat earther
  • Faux patriot
  • Blind supporter of anything, or anyone
  • conspiracy theorist
  • Doubt the Moon landing, or call it a hoax
  • Anti-vaxxer
  • Believe in a deep state
  • Pretending to understand something that is enormously complicated, and just oversimplifying it
