• Gruber the Goober: Please Don’t Hold Me To What I Put in My Own Book

    For someone who became famous for calling Americans stupid, Jonathan Gruber is pretty darned stupid himself.

    The Obamacare architect was on the hot seat today, where plenty of memorable face-plantable moments occurred. But this brief exchange truly encapsulated the idiocy of The Goober. House Committee Chairman Darrell Issa asked the architect about a Washington Post quote that was quite flattering about Gruber — so flattering, in fact, that Gruber reprinted the quote in his own book.

    But does Jonathan Gruber today stand by the quote he was once so proud of?

    Take a look at the exchange in the video clip above, and as always, try to contain your laughter.
