Hat tip to Steve Aftergood for pointing out the latest and most pathetic accomplishment of the Cult of Electromagnetic Pulse Crazy, aka the House Congressional EMP Caucus.

Hail to the Kook

Ol’ EMP Crazy, now stocking 50 pound bags of corn from Sam’s Club and expanding his refuge in Appalachia in advance of the imminent end of America.

Why people should pay no attention at all when someone from a famous American think tank is offering wisdom: Instead of focusing on what we need to learn, we’ve instead fed on hype that fuels fears but doesn’t solve problems.
