“You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out”

"You can’t fix stupid” is a saying of American stand-up comedian Ron White."You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, posters and bumper stickers.

“You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote it out” has been popular since at least March 17, 2009, when it was printed at a sign at a political tea party rally.


Wikipedia: You Can’t Fix Stupid
You Can’t Fix Stupid is an album by American comedian Ron White. It was released by Image Entertainment on February 7, 2006. The album peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Albums chart.

Nation’s Largest Tea Party
5,000 Gather to Protest Obama Spending Policy

The biggest New American Tea Party protest rally yet took place at Fountain Square in Cincinnati on Sunday. Police estimated the crowd to number about 5000 people, which may make the Tea Party protest the biggest in Cincinnati since the Vietnam War.
(...)
As with previous New American Tea Party protests, the people gathered in Fountain Square were angry at the Obama administrations plans to spend money on stimulus programs and bailouts of failing corporations. People carried signs, hand-made, with messages such as “Just Say No to B.O.”, “I’m Only 8 and Already $36000 in Debt”, “The Audacity of Socialism”, “Hey, Obama, Go Stimulate Yourself”, and “You Can’t Fix Stupid, but You Can Vote it Out.”
