“Stuck on stupid”

’Stuck on stupid” is said of someone who makes the same mistakes. The term appears frequently in politics, used by someone critical of a politician, a political party or a government. “Stuck on stupid” has been cited in print since at least 1989.

“Stuck on stupid” is sometimes referred to by the initials “SOS”—also the letters of an international distress signal.

Stuck on Stupid
By David Glenn Cox
