WTF, Brooke? Random expressions of disgust...

I have never been so not proud of a woman in my life as when I heard Brooke Hogan's perspective on why a woman shouldn't be running for president. She has clearly suffered some sort of damage to her cerebral cortex at some point along the way. I'm not sure what she was thinking or even, if she was thinking when she said, "I think that it's kind of crazy that a woman is running..." What a dope?

People like Brooke are part of the big problem in this country today. They don't think past what they are wearing and who's going to be at this party tonight or whether or not their butt looks good in shorts. Airheads, morons, and idiots. We're full up, thank you. Could you send us some of those people who actually think before they speak? We'll pay at least bottom dollar for those.

Geez...for God's sake, people...take a few moments and watch the movie, Idiocracy. It will scare the shit out of you and make you wonder why people like Brooke are being given an audience at all.

Until next time...stay away from wheat grass...and the Red Bull...and all that kind of crap...

Is it still OK for me to chug my NOS (makes Red Bull look like water)?

I saw that video clip last night, and had to laugh. She's as ridiculous as her father, and just shows why our teenagers are dressing their kids in outfits that say "Diva" on them. Disgusting.
