What an idiot

Every once in a while you hear a bureaucrat say something so incredibly stupid that you wonder why anyone in his or her right mind would argue that we need more gov'ment bureaucrats running more things.

Late last year, Dave Thornton was installed to serve as acting director of California's boxing commission. In a recent interview with The Ring magazine, Thornton stated that the individual who fills his position on a permanent basis doesn't necessarily need to know a lot about boxing. As if that statement wasn't stupid enough, Thornton said at a commission meeting that a boxer's hands should be wrapped with 30 yards of gauze and 30 feet of tape before a fight.

Now, you don't have to be a professional boxer to know that an individual who had 30 yards of gauze and 30 feet of tape wrapped 'round his hands would have fists the size of basketballs ... before he ever tried to lace up his gloves.

For the record, Dave Thornton is an idiot.
