Maher, with Arizona's skull-in-posterior statuette

It's official. Arizona has its head up its backside, and it now has the trophy to prove it. Last night on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher announced the winner of a four-week long competition to decide which of the 50 was America's stupidest state. And -- like there was ever a real doubt of the outcome -- Sand Land emerged victorious.

"There were a lot of strong contenders this year," snarked Maher on his show. "We thought Alabama might be the Cinderella victory. But it is Arizona. Arizona has won."

Maher then lifted the golden, Oscar-like statuette, with its one crucial distinction.

"Here's the trophy," he chuckled. "It's a man with his head up his ass."

The comedian promised he would send the award to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, where she'll no doubt proudly display it on her desk next to family pics, especially the one of her "war hero" pop.

Arizona trounced such traditionally dumb states as Alabama and Texas to emerge the winner

Arizona, part of the illustrious "Bone Head Conference," beat out such fellow BHC members as Kansas, Utah and Alabama to go head to head with the winner of the "Brain Dead Conference," which was Texas. Texas had devoured Mississippi, Florida and Alaska to score the BDC title.

Cactus Country no doubt took the brass wing because we dominate in hillbilly-style backwardness. Our "first string" of stupidities include an obsessive hatred of Hispanics, white supremacy, Sheriff Joe, Russell Pearce, SB 1070, the ethnic studies ban, the aborted birther bill, and, the clincher, highways with no rest stops.

Yes, we are the champions! Crank up the Queen, bros. And thank you, Bill!

Not everyone may be bad, but the idiots who live in the state DO elect the politicians

Don't forget the utter boneheadedness of sueing in federal court to ask if our medical marijuana law violated the Controlled Substance Act, a goober move if ever there was one.

Where can I buy those trophies? I know several people that deserve them!

Too bad nobody wants to get behind my plan to deport the white people of Arizona and give it back to the Mexicans and Native Americans who were there legally (and first).

Bear in mind though that the East Coast pays a majority of the taxes. Particularly the Northeast, they pay the largest federal taxes and receive the least. Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, and Georgia receive the most federal tax dollars and pay the least. California also pays out the ass in federal taxes when you compare to Texas. So maybe you Southerners could try paying your end of the bill. It's also easier for Texas to have a roaring economy when Saudi oil investors consider them to be a state full of religious fanatics they could coexist with.
