From time-to-time we’ve had nominations for stupidest Doper. I retract all my previous nominations and ask that Silver lining get the nod by acclamation.
He’s not an AI — Eliza the Psychiatrist a half-century ago was smarter.
He’s not a Russian troll — the Montenegrans working for 75¢ an hour who could barely speak English were more convincing than him.
He’s not as fun as cuddly ol’ Clothahump who kept us up to date with his attempts to seduce Lawnmower Girl the Liberal.
And clearly he lacks the intelligence or sincerity of the many right-wingers here who at least make a token attempt at argumentation or consistency.
The final straw was when he posted ten-year old polling data (yes that’s Ten with a T) in an effort to show Trump is winning the votes of educated Americans. To link to that thread, where he can’t even acknowledge that his data was ten years old, here’s my most recent post there:
My final sentence here was polite talk for “You are an ugly lying liar, and an imbecile to boot.”
In that thread he pretends to be an adult human:
But I’m pretty sure the “too many meetings with executives” refers to how often his care-givers need to change his diapers.
I realize that Silver lining is so beyond-the-pale preposterous that no one else has even bothered to Pit him; and I’ll understand if others don’t want to pile on such an intellectual weakling. But I still fantasize that some future civilization will have only the SDMB archives available to reconstruct post-rational American culture so I want to go on record: Yes, we were stupid … but not stupid enough to think Silver lining was anything but a subhuman too devoid of intellect to even get hired as a 75¢-per-trick troll.
