Ha-ha…this is very funny because:
A.) They are led around simply by the “no(s)”; or
B.) They are too far up the butt of Douche Limpbranch and Gin BecksBeer to find their probosci; or
C.) They would refuse to smell the need for reform if it came up and smacked them on the south end of a north-bound elephant.
The piece goes on to say Republicans are right to demand scrapping all health care reform before agreeing to a televised summit with the president on said…alleged…health care reform. Yes, this is the kind of cooperative approach to government for which we are all asking.
The good news is the Eastern Seaboard is so covered with snow people can’t get to the doctor just now to find out their treatment has been denied by health insurance companies.
And speaking of what Easterners are calling the, “snowpocalypse” (harsh winter weather won’t stop hyperbole), the snow gives morons all across ‘Murka the opportunity to say, “Hey, look, it’s snowing! There’s no global warming after all! Back to the Hummer!…and I don’t mean the truck.”
Seriously, you dorks think because it snows in winter this proves all the climate change science is a hoax? You really believe that? You’re not really that stupid, are you?
Well, apparently some folks really are that stupid. Take Douche Limpranch, for an example:
“Amid record-setting cold weather…the hoax that…global warming is.”
Right-wing Senator Jim DeMint, R-South Carolina, said in The Hill newspaper the snow proves there is no need for legislation requiring reduced emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.
“Record snowfall has buried Washington — and along with it, buried the chances of passing global warming legislation this year,” wrote The Hill. “Cars are stranded in banks of snow along the streets of the federal capital, and in the corridors of Congress, climate legislation also has been put on ice.”
The New York Post jumped right on that one.
“If, like everyone else from New England to Virginia, you spent the last 24 hours watching the global warming fall from the sky, you may agree that Sen. Jim DeMint could be on to something,” wrote the Post. “The South Carolina Republican took to the Twitter-sphere to declare that the region’s second major blizzard in less than a week must be a sign from God.”
“It’s going to keep snowing in DC until Al Gore cries ‘uncle’,” is actually what the learned senator said on the Twitter.
Okay, Dilberts, here’s the deal: weather does not climate make? Got that? There is a difference between weather and climate. Sure, it snow in winter. It’s WINTER!!
Was the first decade of the 21st Century the warmest on record? Yes, it was. Did it snow in the North American winter of that decade? Yes…yes, it did.
You might want to take a moment and read something scientific, even though it will tax your brain. (Whoops…I said “tax” and “brain.” Look for new right-wing talking point.)
Oh yea, and it’s really, really hot in Rio where it’s summer. And in Vancouver, where the Winter Olympics are about to open, it’s waaaayyyy too warm.
Meanwhile, and from yet another branch of the poorly-informed “Real ‘Murka,” poorly-informed Sarah Palindrome ain’t havin’ such a good week. (Ever notice how when you play a recording of Sarah Palin speaking it says the same thing forward and backward?)
Polling by ABC & The Washington Post suggest only 37 percent of those polled view Palindrome “favorably,” while a whopping 52 percent of Republicans don’t even think she’s qualified to be president…also…too.
