Another selection for the "You Stay (KKK)lassy files" of the modern GOP

Hard to believe, I know.
A Republican official in Arizona on Wednesday confirmed something that's long been suspected. State schools superintendent John Huppenthal has been a prolific and often incendiary anonymous commenter on local political blogs.

Under various pseudonyms, including Falcon9, Thucky and Thucydides, Huppenthal has authored hundreds of comments at the progressive Blog for Arizona since at least 2011. He engaged in self-promotion, writing in February that he's "sure" Huppenthal, who's up for re-election this year, "will be our next superintendent."

He once decried Barack Obama for "rewarding the lazy pigs with food stamps (44 million people), air-conditioning, free health care, flat-screen TV's (typical of 'poor' families)." and even went birther, claiming that the president wrote in his memoir that "he was born in Kenya!!!"

In one comment, he compared Margaret Sanger to Adolf Hitler, writing that the Planned Parenthood founder "fed 16 million African-Americans into the abortion mills. He also argued that Franklin D. Roosevelt's "disastrous economic policies drug down the whole world and directly led to the rise of a no-name hack named Adolph Hitler who was going nowhere until Germany's economy went into the tank."
That's your state "School Superintendent" Arizona.

I'm not going to get into all of this nonsense, but let me point out that Roosevelt became President in March of 1933, and Hitler became Reich Chancellor in January of 1933.

I guess the destructive principles Roosevelt used included time travel.

Sock-puppetry.

Actually, Obama's the time traveler. After he got done fixing his "birth announcement" in the Honolulu Times (or whatever it is/was called), he went back an additional 30 years, and helped that Austrian painter. Because, ya know, them fascists gotta stick together - whether Kenyan or not.

Ah, he's school superintendent because he's such a good example of a public school education, right?

And the village idiot slot was already taken (in Arizona, that must be a very competitive race).

Actually, the folks with his beliefs are more likely to be private skool types -- at least here in Tejas.

flat-screen TV's (typical of 'poor' families)

Can you even buy a CRT anymore? Why, I bet those poor people even have "gramophones" and "push-button telephones".

Unless I have to, I no longer volunteer the fact that I live in Arizona because of freakshows like Huppenthal.

He's out of touch. Blame FDR???

Everyone knows to blame Obama. Try to keep up.

I assume that the state schools superintendent is an appointed position vs. elected, so why not one word about the Sand Kingdom's Governor, Jan Brewer who appointed this idiot? If it was a democrat...

Oh. IOKIYAR.

He said that while he regrets "certain inflammatory words," he makes no apologies "for being a pro-life policy maker, or someone who believes in improving conditions for all people."...he almost kind of said he was sorry for being an asshole...
