Carl Lewis wins this week’s Idiot Award:

Criticising Bush for linking his foreign policy with the two countries being allowed to compete here, Lewis said: ‘I felt that was disingenuous. It is funny that we boycotted the 1980 Games [in Moscow] in support of Afghanistan, and now we’re bombing Afghanistan,’ he told the Athens News yesterday.

If that isn’t a perfect display of ignorance, I don’t know what is.
Oh … maybe this:

Scientists have proven that it’s impossible to long-jump 30 feet, but I don’t listen to that kind of talk. Thoughts like that have a way of sinking into your feet.

That’s right, Carl. There’s no sense listening to reason. It might find a way of sinking into your brain.
