Political Entertainments

Mitt Romney will get tough on Iran and deploy two aircraft carriers to the region,

While Barack Obama has . . . kept two carriers off Iran for the past two years.

Romney would sort out the Syrian opposition and give them the support they need!

Meanwhile . . . (the CIA is currently on the border trying to do just that.)


Todd Akin, on the lack of science behind evolution:

I donít see it as even a matter of science because I donít know that you can prove one or the other. Thatís one of those things. We can talk about theology and all of those other things but Iím basically concerned about, youíve got a choice between Claire McCaskill and myself. My job is to make the thing there. If we want to do theoretical stuff, we can do that, but I think I better stay on topic.

If you count the number of Republicans who are profoundly anti-science, they stack up like cord wood. Every time you turn around — the last was this weekend — there will be some videotape of a Republican Party heevahava going on about the perfidy of scientists, the satanic deception of evolution, weird and offensive explanations of women’s reproductive biology, how one can pray the gay away, and the gigantic hoax of global warming

Indeed, the GOP lines the House Science committee with them showing only how the party is composed of extremists and nitwits, people who are toxic to progress and enlightenment.

And that’s the entire point.
