DAMN....IT'S HOT

You're right Newt. You and the coal company you run are correct. There is no climate change going on.

No Newt, you're wrong. You're dead wrong. Climate change is the reason why our winters here in Wisconsin have been getting progressively colder. That's why the winter snow storms have been more intense. It's also why the summers have been getting hotter, and the storms are more fierce and destructive and contain more tornadoes. Climate change is the reason why there are more intense hurricanes, and more flooding, and less polar ice.

GINGRICH, YOU ARE A FUCKING IDIOT! CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE REASON WHY WE HERE IN SOUTHERN WISCONSIN ARE UNDER A "HEAT ADVISORY" POSTED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE! THAT'S ALSO THE REASON IT WAS 80 DEGREES AT 6:00 AM, AND WHY THE TEMPERATURE IS 87 DEGREES IN THE SHADE AND 128 DEGREES IN THE SUN AT 10:30 AM! THIS IS NOT NORMAL!

Newt Gingrich’s 527 organization, American Solutions for Winning the Future (ASWF), took to the airwaves yesterday in opposition to the Waxman-Markey clean energy reform bill. The 30-second attack ad falls highlights the Gingrich-inspired Republican strategy of calling the bill a “national energy tax”:

Now congress is about to make things dramatically worse by passing a new national energy tax. We’ll lose more jobs, pay more for gas and electricity, pushing our economy to its breaking point. Stop the national energy tax, call your member of Congress before it’s too late.

Contradicting ASWF’s “energy tax” attack, a Congressional Budget Office analysis of Waxman-Markey found that the legislation only costs the equivalent of a postage stamp a day, while sharply cutting greenhouse gas emissions.


There's a video that goes with this that was put out by Gingrich's 527 group, but I refuse to post it here. If you want to see it, either click here or on the link at the top of the post.

Good Morning, Eddie!

OMG...Gingrich is among the stupidest men on earth. When these guys become repubs, do they hold classes on How To Be Complete Idiots?

Grandpa Eddie said...

Nancy - Good Morning!

I don't think they need to take any classes to become complete idiots, they already are. That's why they become Rethuglicans. If they were smart, they would be Progressives.

They're still living in their fantasy world. The disconnect with the reality based community that the rest of us live in is not just about geopolitics. It's about health care, taxes, climate change and everything else. If a problem is not one they want to solve then it just doesn't exist.

He's such a fucking putz. I don't understand how such an educated person could have his head so firmly and so far up his ass.

We had 90 degree+ temps in APRIL! And no spring. And two blizzards this winter. In OREGON. No, I must just be seeing things.

Grandpa Eddie said...

ZneYenta - They definitely live in a fantasy world.

Grandpa Eddie said...

Riot Kitty - Well according to this fucking idiot, you are just imagining those things, because they couldn't be happening. Newter's god wouldn't let that happen.

This. shit. makes. me. nuts.

Especially since my husband is part of a group of scientists studying climate change using ice core samples from Antarctica.

Science vs. politics seems to be the new battle cry for the GOP (since they are quietly trying to unlock themselves from the unwinnable science vs. religion battle).

Grandpa Eddie said...

skyewriter - I think they're still pitting their religious crap against science yet. That's the basic part of their politics.
