the Alaskan pitbull in lipstick, caribou barbie or brainless twit. The winner by mile is Sarah Palin.
PolitiFact.com, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking Web site of the St. Petersburg Times, has named Sarah Palin’s claim about “death panels” the 2009 Lie of the Year.
They should have thrown in a bonus prize for her remarks about climate change on twitter a couple of days ago.
“Copenhgen=arrogance of man2think we can change nature’s ways.MUST b good stewards of God’s earth,but arrogant&naive2say man overpwers nature”
“Earth saw clmate chnge4 ions;will cont 2 c chnges.R duty2responsbly devlop resorces4humankind/not pollute&destroy;but cant alter naturl chng”
Don’t you just love her attempt to fit in with the twitter crowd with her attempt to cram in as much stupidity into 140 characters as possible.
An intelligence test should be a requirement before you can run for any office, especially on a national level.
Joe Barton (R-TX) is one of these idiots who should never been allowed to run for office.
In an interview with C-Span Barton complained about clean energy legislation by stating “I don’t want to go back to the 1870s where my great-grandparents lived on a dry land cotton farm in Texas with no running water and no electricity and their power source was their own muscles or animal power”.
“CO2 is odorless, colorless, tasteless – it’s not a threat to human health in terms of being exposed to it. We create it as we talk back and forth. So, and if you go beyond that, on a net basis, there’s ample evidence that warming generically — however it is caused — is a net benefit to mankind.“
As thinkprogress notes Barton is know by his nick name, “Smokey” because ..continue reading
I wonder which oil corporation paid the ghost writer to write Sarah Palin’s latest Washington Post column.
In the Post today Palin shows once again why she should be the Republican nominee for president in 2012. Totally clueless which makes her the perfect selection for the party of obstruction.
Palin as most deniers believe that stealing and revealing the content of the emails is one of the greatest discoveries of our time.
Here are some highlights from her ghost written column:
“The agenda-driven policies being pushed in Copenhagen won’t change the weather, but they would change our economy for the worse.”Really, maybe worse for the oil companies but not the rest of us.
“I’ve always believed that policy should be based on sound science, not politics.” What a joke
“..we recognize the occurrence of these natural, cyclical environmental trends, we can’t say with assurance that man’s activities cause weather changes. We can say, however, that ..continue reading
Thomas Friedman, the author of The World is Flat and a columnist in the NYT, can be both enlightening and infuriating.
During an interview with Charlie Rose in 2003 Friedman declared that we attacked Iraq because we could. Not because of Saddam, WMD and all the other lies that were circulating for years about why we were in Iraq. He stated that the message was “suck on this”. We wanted to get even with someone for 9/11 and Iraq seemed like an easy choice. Not Saudi Arabia where most of the terrorists were from, or Pakistan where Al Qaeda and the Taliban were hiding.
Most consider Friedman to be a liberal but sometimes he says things that make you wonder what is going on in his mind.
In his column in yesterday’s New York Times he compares Cheney’s 1% doctrine with climate change.
Cheney stated “If there’s a 1% chance that Pakistani scientists are helping Al ..continue reading
James Inhofe (R-OK) is persistent if nothing else, even if it means lying to further his anti-climate change agenda.
The climate change critics are acting like little terriers who have latched onto a pant leg and will not let go. They have turned some stolen emails into climate-gate. According to them the emails prove that scientists have conspired for years to lie to the public about climate change.
The emails state nothing of the sort. The critics have taken some terms in the emails that are commonly used by scientists to adjust findings for different time periods and turned this into a “conspiracy”.
But Inhofe marches on. On CNN today he declared
“..if it was just me saying it’d be one thing, but all over the world they’re talking about this. And just this morning the meteorologists — one of the groups — has said that they’re changing their position. Listen, the UK Telegraph — this is worst scientific scandal of ..continue reading
