    Palin as vice presidential candidate was stupid (actually.. Stoopid), but Palin as Presidential candidate is even Stupider (Stoopider).
    Thats the proof.. if she gets elected, that would be even proofier!!

    Obama is stupider than any other president. No spellcheck error came up.

    There is stupid and more stupid. Not stupider. LOL Well, now that's interesting. When I typed out stupider, my red spellcheck line did not come up. Maybe there is a such word.

    That's what I found interesting too. My phone and computer seem to agree with the word. Strange.

    Guess what. I just looked it up and it is a version of the word in the dictionary online.
    stu·pid·er
    adj. stu·pid·er, stu·pid·est
    1. Slow to learn or understand; obtuse.
    2. Tending to make poor decisions or careless mistakes.
    3. Marked by a lack of intelligence or care; foolish or careless: a stupid mistake.
    4. Dazed, stunned, or stupefied.
    5. Pointless; worthless: a stupid jo

    Merriam-Webster?

    This is why I asked for evidence. This isn't as "stupid" a question as people might think, ha. I've got conflicting evidence from all the place!

    Thanks Pearl.

    IDK. I guess some people decide a word is a word and others don't. Or maybe the dictionary is old and now things have changed. Online has got to be right! (sarcastic). It's up to the moment. LOL

    Trust me, I'm second guessing Merriam-Webster's online dictionary too. But compound this with my phone and computer spell-checker agreeing and it becomes hard to tell. My instinct tells me it isn't a word.

    I think it might possibly be a word, but due to its awkwardness has fallen very much out of favor. I'm a smart guy (so I like to think) so I feel 'stupider' even asking this question. I need to get a hold of my friend the English major.

    Online. I'm surprised. I was wondering why my computer didn't mark it as misspelled when I typed it.

    Even though I hear that word often I dont think it is in the dictionary. I may be wrong.

    You would be amazed how hard it is to get a consistent answer to this question. No one can seem to prove it either. It's either not correct or sounds so incorrect that it has fallen out of favor due to its awkwardness.

    Neither is 'funnier'.... :-/

    Apparently, people think they can just add "-er" to the end of a word and make it one..

    It doesn't take an English major to understand this.

    No it is incorrect to say that but what I hate is when my dad and broth add a "S" to the end of each word:
    Okays I'll dos its
    It pisses me off they say grammatically incorrect statements like that all the time.
