AGW: Another One Bites The Dust. In Fact Many Anothers.

The Galileo of Global Warming

I have written before about how the left loves to invoke the example of Galileo in order to present themselves as the great defenders of science against all of those knuckle-dragging religious bigots who don't believe in global warming. But these same people don't understand science very well themselves (remember amateur neurologist Janeane Garofalo lecturing us about the "limbic brain"?), so they end up using Galileo, a man who defied the "consensus" of his day, as a propaganda talking point to enforce the consensus of today.
It occurred to me a while back that there is something worse about this invocation of Galileo, because there is a modern-day equivalent to Galileo, specifically on the issue of global warming—and he's on the other side. In this more civilized age, he is thankfully not threatened with torture or any kind of persecution. But he is a pioneer of new and important scientific truths who is being ignored and vilified because his discoveries run counter to the quasi-religious dogma of our day.

All the believers believe themselves some science, eh? Of course they’ll smugly point out that these are all old farts thus not believable because they don’t have a precious apple on the desk.

Left: Breitbart Is Dead, May He Rot In Hell

Strange, because most libs don't believe in God, heaven or hell, but maybe they have had an Epiphany because it seems they are all saying "rot in hell" in unison. If they're finally believing in Hell then maybe they'll start acting in a way that might get them into Heaven.

Nice of them to notice though. Strengthens Breitbart's position on modern liberalism.

Whores Calling For Abstinence

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said in a letter to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority General Manager Richard Sales that the ad "does not belong" in the capital region's transportation system because it is "deeply disrespectful to the President of the United States." 

Jim Moran preaching respect is like a whore preaching abstinence.
