Brooke Hogan doesn’t think you should vote

You really can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Or in this case, Brooke Hogan. Which looks like an old dog. Last month Brooke very stupidly said that she didn’t think women should be president because we deal with PMS and all sorts of emotions. So basically her thought was, “I’m dumb and I’m a woman, therefore all women must be dumb.” Due to the aforementioned stupidity, it never occurred to Brooke that her idiocy – while not unique to her – is not representative f the entire female gender.

Now Brooke’s decided it’s a good idea to open her obscenely wide mouth again and yap about her deep political thoughts. Quick summary: the aforementioned “I’m dumb and I’m ____, so all people who are ____ must also be dumb” formula still applies.

We’re starting to think that perhaps Brooke Hogan should steer clear of expressing her political opinions. The 20-year-old recently caused a media stir when she wrote on her MySpace blog that she thought it was “crazy” for Hillary Clinton to run for president as women “deal a lot with emotions and menopause and PMS.” In a posting this week, Brooke wrote that most people only vote because “it’s cool” and (like herself) have no real idea what’s going on in and around the White House.

“Only 54 percent of eligible american voters cast their ballots!!!!!! Half of them are only voting cause its ‘cool’ to vote for so and so…they aren’t even up to date on information,” Brooke wrote. “I’M personally not up to date on the facts, so I don’t wanna make a stupid choice for our country. I WANT to vote but only when I know exactly whats going on. More ppl should think like that. Paris Hilton said ‘yaaaay go vote cause its cool and hott!!!!’ …SHE WASN’T EVEN REGISTERED.”

[From Fox News’ Pop Tarts]

Anytime you make Paris Hilton look intelligent by comparison, it’s time to consider having your mouth stapled shut. And I offer my stapling services to you Brooke Hogan, free of charge. Just you, me, and my grandpa’s old rusty Swingline he’s had since before the war.

How about encouraging people to get up to date on the facts? I don’t know one single person who votes because it’s “cool.” She makes it sound like peer pressure to smoke pot. “Everyone’s voting for Obama.. if you were cool like us, you’d do it too.” What the hell? Brooke Hogan is so mind-numbingly stupid that I honestly don’t even know where to begin to attack here statement. So I’ll leave it at this.

Brooke Hogan, you are stupid. You at least seem to know this. But sadly you are too stupid to understand that your level of stupidity is not normal. You are uniquely stupid. This is the only unique thing about you. Just because you are too dumb to do something and instead decide to abstain from it does not mean that is good advice for most other people. They are able to learn. Even pretty stupid people are able to learn more than you. You should focus on more important things. Things the rest of us do automatically. Breathing in and out. I don’t believe you’re smart enough to be able to do this automatic function on your own. Don’t try to multitask. Just focus on mastering the most basic tasks in life, and try to find some happiness in those little accomplishments.

Here’s Brooke on her way into the CW11 studios in New York on July 11th. Isn’t she just the spitting image of her father in drag? Images thanks to Bauer Griffin.

    She is so manly. God, I feel for gals like this. Men are always going to be looking at other women.

  2. Javagirl1 says:

    Well, she was right about Paris Hilton…she wasn’t registered.

  3. CelebitchyFAN says:

    Well, all I can say is thank you Brooke, now we know that “my daddy” won’t be listed as a write in with one vote.

  4. Holly says:

    You know, even an uninformed decision is still a decision–everyone is entitled to their say whether or not they’ve researched all the facts. Its still their vote and their opinion, shitty and uninformed, or not.

  5. Ron says:

    I weep for my country’s future!

    And to think all of that brain power stems for the genes of her parents…who can vote. But probably shouldn’t because they have alot of emotions and stuff going on right now and can’t like concentrate or pay attention to what is going on in their country…and stuff.
    That’s all.

  6. Snowblood says:

    The title could’ve just been “Brooke Hogan Doesn’t Think.” She – oh, where are the words?? She’s – I’m at a loss.

  7. MISSY says:

    Will she PLEASE stop talking about politics, she makes females seem dumb.

  8. hello says:

    So, really what should have said is that lots of uninformed people SAY that they’re going to vote because it’s cool.

    I’m pretty sure that the majority of people who vote are the retired and people who are more established. Especially those in the South. They know how to rally down there with their evangelist voters guides that are handed out in church.

  9. Whitey Fisk says:

    I never knew voting was cool. I guess the grannies who give you the little sticker when you walk out are like freakin’ rock stars to our pal Brooke!

    JayBird sure managed to pack a lot of meaningful insight into a piece about Brooke Hogan. That’s freakin’ talent!

  10. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Anastasia thinks Brooke Hogan should choke on a chicken bone.

  11. aury says:

    what a dumb c***. she shouldn’t try to speak for anyone.

  12. Syko says:

    Not everyone in the south is a stupid, ultra religious sheep who does what some itinerant preacher tells them to do, Hello. Some of us actually go to college, hold down professional jobs, and don’t attend tent revivals. Atlanta is a wildly modern city, as are quite a few other southern cities. We can actually think and make decisions and vote.

    Educate yourself.

  13. Bodhi says:

    So is Charleston. My father is a native Southerner & has a Ph.D AND is the most left-leaning person I know. He even pciks up litter on the side of the road with the local Secular Humanist group.

    I love being Southern but I HATE all the goddamn stereotypes

  14. cara says:

    I just do not understand why, this child, who should of went to the best schools money can buy, has the grammer of a retard. ( retard in the sense that growth is stunted, clearly as she shows hers is…not someone of disabilities. They often strive continually, therefor they are NOT retarded )

  15. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Yep to what Syko said. I’m Dallas born and bred, and multiple generation, at that. My mother has a master’s degree, my father has a PhD and I have a master’s degree. My brother and school didn’t get along, but he’s brilliant and is making six figures, which is more than I’ll ever see, LOL (I’m in academia). (He has his own construction company. Damn him. No really, I’m happy for him.)

    Anywho. Wee DO hav SUM smartz down here!

  16. Allie says:

    Baaahaaahaaahaaahaa. Best rant ever at Brooke.

  17. The Old KC says:

    Chimin’ in for the Southerners – I’m proud to be an Alabamian (born, raised and educated). I will say that I hate the stereotypes too, and have railed against them for decades now – but I’m feeling the heat with this presidential election. Even people who seemed completely normal have turned on me – my own sister-in-law, with whom I have gotten along seamlessly for the better part of 10 years, called me a “Bush-hater” and a “flip-floppin’ democrat liberal” at our last family gathering. (I’m not saying my sister-in-law is ignorant, but she won’t listen to anything I have to say, or anyone else for that matter, unless they agree with her that George W. Bush is the Chosen Anointed One. If you are going to debate with me, at least really debate and listen to my point of view.) Back on topic, I have to disagree with Brooke that we vote because it’s cool. Do you think it’s fun for me to drive my ass down to the local Evangelical church (where I am zoned to vote, unfortunately), stand in line with all the members of the Rick and Bubba fan club, and listen to everyone talking about how Obama is the Antichrist? Seriously, some people down here STILL think that. That is not my idea of “cool”, Brooke. I would rather stay in bed that day. But, I’ll be doing it because it’s my duty and my privilege as an American citizen, woman, and, God help me, Southerner. It would please me to absolutely no end to see Alabama turn blue on election day this time around. I love Alabama, please do not get me wrong – it can just get frustrating sometimes to see how terribly we are portrayed in the media down here and then realize that half the time, we probably deserve it.

  18. paris herpes says:

    There’s so many people I know who don’t vote either for a similar reason. She also has a valid point about Paris, who wasn’t even registered and telling people to vote because it’s “hot”. Voting isn’t cool either, people feel they have a minimal impact on politics much less on their country, and look at all the propositions and laws that are passed without us knowing or even agreeing with on a daily basis. However, if Brooke REALLY cared about what was going on politically, economically or even socially in our country, she would take some time in her busy schedule to research and read and consider who she wants to vote for. However, most people vote based on the “hype”, and they don’t really care who wins, just as long as it’s not Bush. Yes, I’m really jaded with the system, I recently heard that Obama is for wiretapping, and I wished Edwards (despite the dumbass scandal) had an inkling of a chance for the nomination.

  19. Codzilla says:

    Everything I think has already been said here, but I just couldn’t leave without reiterating the very obvious point that Brooke Hogan’s idiocy is startling. Not only in its scope, but in the arrogance with which she shoves it down our throats.

  20. WTF?!?! says:

    Why is that dude wearing a dress and a hoola-hoop on each ear?

  21. Victoria says:

    WAY to go Syko and BOdhi…. I also live in the South, not far from Atlanta.. I get sick of the ” hillbilly ” and ” uneducated ” ” redneck ” jokes. I also agree with Anastasia that Brooke needs to choke on a chicken bone. She needs to shut up. She is as ridiculous as Paris Hilton sitting in her champagne glass twirling her beads. Every time I hear either of their voices I cringe. Someone above said they worry about our future with people like this. It’s too late. And they both talk about reproducing!! Oh, dear…

  22. hello says:

    Syko, Bodhi

    I wasn’t intending to knock on the South. I was trying to point at the tradition of political organization, which is very often through churches. Church based political organization is still very strong in the South, and has a very strong history there. The civil rights movement was born in Southern black churches. I thought prefacing the statement with “they know how to rally” was enough. That was my point. That is all. Looking back, I wasn’t especially clear, but I did not deserve to be told to “go educate myself.”

    Also, I don’t think that voting conservatively is wrong, or that it loans itself to meaning that a person is uneducated, litters freely, or has been so brainwashed by religious beliefs that they are unable to make a decision on their own. In fact, I never said that. You drew that negative stereotype of southerners (and republicans) on your own.

    For your information, my father’s side of the family came from Mississippi, so although I did not grow up in the South, it’s there in my history. To ridicule that would be ridiculing part of myself, and the means that relatives have achieved their goals. I am aware of the fact that you can get an education in the South. I have three cousins who went to Morehouse, Spellman, and Tuskegee. One is an investment banker, one is a journalist, and the other is working towards a medical degree.

    So, perhaps before you go off on me because of the stereotypes you perceive me to hold, you should check yourself and the prejudices you hold towards Southerners.

    And I am quite educated, especially when it comes to voting patterns in America. I wrote my senior thesis on it, focusing on the role the religion plays in America and its effects on American voting. And am starting my law degree this fall.

  24. Jenna says:

    Of all the times I have gone to church, we’ve never discussed politics. We mainly discuss the take down of Miley Cyrus and Brooke Hogan- while we do a fancy jig.

    I think Brooke Hogan and her whole clan should be shipped to somewhere like the south pole or the north pole. Maybe the penguins will kill them all.

  25. RAN says:

    OMG Pop Tarts…that is one of the funniest articles I think I’ve ever read! I’ve started this day with a laugh and you’ve helped me end it by laughing along with your hilarious article. Love your humor and wit 😛

  26. stellapurdy says:

    Jenna: ahahahahhahaha!!

    Who is this Brook Hogan and how is it she’s getting 15 minutes of fame??

  27. Wil in Mpls says:

    Can we stop paying attention to this whorish bag of scum that portrays itself as important to the World?? I mean really .. they are already basically got away with killing someone. Why continue to add to the fame of these douchebags by covering their stupidity further?

    Just MHO ..

  28. Bodhi says:

    Hello~ My comment concerning Southern stereotypes was a general statement. It wasn’t directed to you at all & I’m sorry if it came off that way & if I offended you. I’m just a left wing Irish Catholic girl in a right wing WASPy Bible Belt world…

    Just for the record, I don’t have any prejudices at all in regards to Southerners. Just stupid people in general.

    And you, hello, are clearly not a stupid person. Good luck with your JD! I work in the library at a law school & I see how crazy it gets! My only advise is to make fast friends with the library staff; pop in & say hey every once in a while & they will totally help you out with whatever you need :mrgreen:

    Edit: Upon second blush, the bit about my pops sounded, um, dumb. I had a point, but I lost it somewhere along the line

  29. Ellie says:

    Why on earth are you encouraging her to concentrate on breathing?

    Maybe if she gets too focused on ranting, she’ll forget to breathe. Then she’ll die, and we won’t have to listen to this idiocy anymore.

    Oh, and I think voting is very cool. However, I’m a total loser. Sad, but true.

  30. Catlady says:

    Wow. The author of this article and commentors all seem to have missed the points Brooke was making, and they were good ones. This is scary and I don’t really care to be in the position of having to defend her, but that’s preferable to being part of an ignorant lynch mob. Apparently the reading comprehension of this group is fairly non-existent. Let me explain this point by point:

    1.“Only 54 percent of eligible american voters cast their ballots!!!!!!”

    Here she shows dismay that there is such a low voter turnout. I’m also dismayed and disgusted that more people don’t take their right to vote seriously.

    2.”Half of them are only voting cause its ‘cool’ to vote for so and so…they aren’t even up to date on information,” Brooke wrote.

    Here she again shows dismay, this time at the fact that people don’t take their right to vote seriously or actually research what they’re voting on. This is an excellent point and is pertinent because a majority of fools can make life miserable for the rest of us.

    3. “I’M personally not up to date on the facts, so I don’t wanna make a stupid choice for our country. I WANT to vote but only when I know exactly whats going on. More ppl should think like that.”

    I can’t take issue with this statement. She, again, makes an excellent point and is being responsible. Note she did not say she won’t vote. She says she is not up to date on the facts, will not make an uninformed choice and will vote once she has the information. That’s a very responsible thing to do.

    4. “Paris Hilton said ‘yaaaay go vote cause its cool and hott!!!!’ …SHE WASN’T EVEN REGISTERED.”

    Here she simply points out Paris Hilton’s hypocrisy. How anyone could think that’s a bad thing is a mystery.

    Bottom line, the majority here has judgement so clouded by their obvious hate of the person that they see what they want to see instead of taking a moment to read and understand what was actually said. These are not people I would want voting in any election.

  31. Jenna says:

    Catlady, so do you agree with a previous statement from Brooke claiming that a woman shouldn’t run for presidency because she has PMS? Her basis for that is because when she is PMSing she is a real bitch, pretty much.

    Anyways, when she made the statement about 54% and whatnot, I might have taken it a little more seriously if she didn’t have six exclamation marks… or not.

    I believe a real reason why people don’t vote for presidency is because they can’t exactly do it from home. American Idol has bigger results than the elections.

    I am nineteen and I am voting. I’m sorry if I offend anyone who is voting for Bush’s third term (McCain) but I am voting for Obama. So Brooke can go shove it down her throat, if she can get past her adam’s apple. 👿

    Oh and calling Paris Hilton out will be Brooke’s end. Her and greasy bear (Brandon Davis) are thinking of some hilarious term to refer to her pre-op manhood.

  32. Kat says:

    Can’t believe I just wasted time reading about this Airhead…..

  33. Catlady says:

    Catlady, so do you agree with a previous statement from Brooke claiming that a woman shouldn’t run for presidency because she has PMS? Her basis for that is because when she is PMSing she is a real bitch, pretty much.

    No, I don’t agree with that. It was ignorant and she received a lot of flack for it. I also think it may have been a wake-up call for her hence her more recent comments voicing concern over low voter turnout and the fact that people don’t know or bother to find out anything about what or who they’re voting for.

    Anyways, when she made the statement about 54% and whatnot, I might have taken it a little more seriously if she didn’t have six exclamation marks… or not.

    Why? I think that those exclamation marks were warranted. Doesn’t it shock you how indifferent almost half the country is? Or that they just don’t bother to use a right that was fought hard for and much blood was shed for?

    I believe a real reason why people don’t vote for presidency is because they can’t exactly do it from home. American Idol has bigger results than the elections.

    If you can go to the store you can get out to vote. Laziness is not an excuse.

    I am nineteen and I am voting. I’m sorry if I offend anyone who is voting for Bush’s third term (McCain) but I am voting for Obama.

    I’m glad to hear you’re voting, and NEVER apologize for voting for what or who you believe in.

  34. tp Vero says:

    I can make this simple for all the people who feel they don’t know enough to vote. Before Bush was elected (twice) our country was respected by the rest of the world. That is not longer the case. many people outside the states feel that we deserved 9/11 and Katrina and on and on because of Mr Bushe’s policies.

    If you cant agree with that, the once respected and much sought after American dollar is now worthless on the world market. Only really poor 3rd world countries take it and think it is something. Most people think it is as worthless as it is. If anyone had any sense they would be really embarrassed about this.

    Since Bush came to office people are loosing their homes, banks and mortgage institutions are folding. The stock market sucks….. food prices are up and no one can travel because gas is too expensive and again the American dollar is now worthless.

    What does it take for people to see that the Republican administration has made all the quality of their lives worth much less. CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE something and save the friggin country please!!!!!

  35. xiaoecho says:

    Brooke Hogan thinks? Wow! 😯

  36. Lauri says:

    @Bodhi-Charleston? SC or WV? I’m a Charleston SC gal, myself.

    Oh, and to the poster who said Southerners are dumb, get over yourself. Have you not yet learned that stereotyping people is wrong? My husband and I are both college educated, responsible people who work for a large medical university. I work with a lot of intelligent and accomplished southerners. I also know a lot of dumb rednecks. But, you know what? That’s true of anyplace; north, south, east or west.

  37. Bodhi says:

    No way! SC baby!!

  38. Bodhi says:

    And wait, you work at MUSC? How funny!

  39. lola lola says:

    Voting isn’t cool. Its a pain in the ass BUT, its also a necessity. I have no right to bitch about the economy or politics unless I vote. I express my opinion, here AND in the voting booth. It took an Amendment to the Constitution for women to get the “right” to vote. So I’m using my right everytime I can. Is it even necessary to add that Brooke is pathetic? or is that overkill?

  40. Lauri says:

    Yup…I work for MUSC. Been her 11 years. Love it…I’ll be here until retirement, for sure. What about you? Don’t tell me you work here too?

  41. Bodhi says:

    Nope, at the law school. Wow, this is too funny! I live on James Island, how ’bout you?

  42. Al says:

    A few people seem to be making the point that being uneducated about the issues means you should abstain from voting. I don’t know if that’s necessarily the case; it’s not a matter of knowledge vs. ignorance, but simply a matter of degrees of knowledge.

    I have a good understanding of how the economy works, and may select a candidate based on his economic policies.
    Tom, a Ph.D. in Economics, understand the economy better than I do, and may make an even more informed decision than I will on which candidate will have better economic policies.
    Mr. Johnson, a 92-year old man who has witnessed depressions, recessions, and 4 American wars, understands the effect of war on economy better than either of us, and will make the best decision on which candidate will have better economic policies.
    Mika, my 19-yr old high school dropout cousin, has taken a single, 9th grade American History class. She understands the economy less than any of us. It is a mystery to her what influences the power of the dollar. She will probably pick a candidate based on how much she can understand about his economic policies when someone explains it to her in the car.

    However, we all can and SHOULD vote; how could we go about setting limits, saying “OK, you know enough about abortion to vote. You, however, don’t. Go home.”

    Where would we set those thresholds? Do I need a bachelor’s in Economics to vote on who I think will be better for the economy? Or is a bachelor’s not enough? Do I need a master’s? Or a Ph.D.? A postdoc? A bestselling analysis of American economy?

    Everyone’s opinion is valuable. We can’t run the country just on the opinion of an educated elite, no matter how tempting that prospect might be.

    And theoretically, one of the goals (so I’m told) of the public school system is that, by graduation, everyone is at least educated enough to vote. That doesn’t mean that the average citizen’s grasp of the political ramifications of placing long-range missiles in Turkey will be as thorough as a Political Science Ph.D.’s understanding, but both opinions are valuable. And let’s please please please PLEASE put some more money into education, kthx.

  43. Bodhi says:

    Here here Al!

  44. Lauri says:

    Funny! I thought seriously about law school when it opened! I was interested in immigration law. I’ve decided since then to go to nursing school here at MUSC (working on my prereq’s at tech now) starting next year in August. MUSC will pay for it, and I won’t lose my years as a state employee in the retirement system.

    I live West Ashley, behind where the Sofa Super Store was before the fire.:D

  45. Le Petomane says:

    Nice to see the lowcountry representing ’round here.

  46. Lauri says:

    Hey, La Petomane! Are you from Charleston, as well?

  47. Maritza says:

    I couldn’t have said it better! jaja

  48. Bodhi says:

    I know exactly where that is! Well, I knew before, but even if I didn’t, I’d know b/c of the fire

  49. Le Petomane says:

    Well, Charleston county, Edisto Island really, errr until very very recently. Long story.

  50. Lauri says:

    Ah…I used to go ghost hunting on Edisto when I was a teen. Did you know that Edisto is supposedly one of the most haunted places in the US? Lots & lots of ghost stories from that island.

  51. Bodhi says:

    Fun! And how ’bout the Grey Man on Pawley’s? I’ve always loved that one.

  52. Lauri says:

    Yeah, but there were no reports of the Grey Man showing up before Hurricane Hugo…so I have to wonder about that one!

  53. Le Petomane says:

    Oh yes, ghost hunting. Many a time back in the day. Brick house, the mausoleum, the Edingsville light, Prospect hill, hell even the Jascksonboro light. It was all good. Thought that it was a bunch of bull, until I heard a wampus cat while I was a caretaker @ a plantation down there. Then things got weird. Really. Boo!

  54. Le Petomane says:

    But I digress…

  55. Lauri says:

    I did a night tour of the old Charleston Jail recently. It was really interesting and really spooky, too. I learned a lot of Charleston history on that tour. Very informative!!!

    That was part of a ghost hunting group I was considering joining, but unfortunately it fizzled out.

  56. Lauri says:

    Le, I’d love to hear/read your stories from the plantation sometime!

  57. Le Petomane says:

    Ain’t no thang. Just to say, It was a learning experience to be sure. And now,i can honestly say, and ya’ll can laugh at this if you want, I believe in the root (ghosts and such).

  58. Hanna says:

    Whoa. She’s right!

    Stupid, uninformed people shouldn’t vote.

  59. Lauri says:

    No laughin’ here, Le. I’ve seen too much myself to deny the reality of some things that a lot of other people choose to ignore.

  60. Bodhi says:

    Ditto Lauri! Live around here long enough & you just can’t deny it. I don’t know anyone here who does…

  61. I read this blog on this website that talks about why Brooke Hogan had to switch to another condo for her reality show in Miami. Very funny. 🙂 🙂

  62. Snowblood says:

    I’m gonna back up what Lola stated here in this thread, ’cause it’s thread pertinant, you know? Lola’s almost always on the other side of the opinion fence from me around here, especially within our infamous Jolie-Pitt threads, but on this particular point, she’s absolutely got my backing.

    This right for us women to vote was a long, difficult struggle to obtain. It was not so long ago that we women, along with the country’s minorities, especially our Black & Asian brothers & sisters, were denied the equal rights every human being in this country has been entitled to from the beginning, and we’ve all been entitled to equal rights if not by common sense and sensibility, then at least by the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights.

    Brooke Hogan sh*ts upon the likes of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Susan B. Anthony with her blithe, insipid, stubborn stupidity. You don’t like women’s rights, Brooke? Try living in a religious compound somewhere, or move your stupid punk-ass to fukking outer Chinese-controlled Mongolia, we’ll see how much you appreciate the hard work of your foremothers there when you’re faced living with the reality of the drivel you spit!

    You guys, we only just got our right to vote in 1920!! That is NOT very long ago. I mean – think about it, really that was within our grandmother’s/great-grandmother’s lifetime. It was a hard battle won, too. Ignorant bitches like Brooke hogan should be told this history. She must not know! Or how could she be such a terrible mental insect about it? GOD!! infuriating.

  63. devilsadvocate says:

    I’ve never voted and never will. I rank all politicians up there with child molesters and would never want to be responsible for them ever achieving a place of authority. Dirty filthy liars who will say anything to get into office is all they are.
