Megan McCain Wants to Know if Her Party Will Betray God, Acknowledge Existence of Climate Change

by Kris E. Benson

Here’s an interesting question: what if one of America’s oldest and greatest cities was covered in ocean water and subjected to a once-in-a-lifetime style weather event because the moon happened to be full when a tropical hurricane drifted north and collided with an arctic storm? If that happened, do you think that the GOP might want to stop pretending that climate change doesn’t exist? This is what “political analyst” Megan McCain wants to know. (Yes, the Hill actually refers to her as “political analyst” Megan McCain.) Anyway, can we stop pretending we don’t believe in anthropogenic climate change, GOP, is what she wants to know? And the answer is OF COURSE NOT, DUH.


So are we still going to go with climate change not being real fellow republicans [sic]?” [Megan] McCain wrote, via Twitter, around midnight as the storm was slamming ashore.

McCain’s father has advocated for curbing greenhouse gas emissions and co-sponsored cap-and-trade bills several years ago.

However, substantial numbers of Republicans now dispute widely held scientific views about global warming and the extent of humans’ contribution.

 

This, of course, is a charitable depiction of Republicans’ views on climate change. Joe Barton, a Congressman from Texas (of COURSE) believes that the wind is “God’s way of balancing heat.” So if you want to build wind turbines, you better really think hard about it because you could MAKE THE PLANET EVEN HOTTER through messing with God. And then there’s Representative John Shimkus who has managed to sit on the House Energy and Commerce Committee even though he turns to Genesis for guidance on climate change. God said he wouldn’t destroy the earth with a flood again so we should take Him at his word, and that’s why John Shimkus does not believe we should worry about climate change. So sorry Megan McCain, and sorry to any of you who are currently without power and surrounded by waist-high water—don’t worry! Tide goes in, tide goes out. Sun goes up, sun goes down. Never a miscommunication. This is the work of God, and God would NEVER allow for anthropogenic climate change.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 2, 2012 at 5:13 am

Boobies are threatened by climate change, so Meghan is right to be concerned.

Come here a minute October 31, 2012 at 4:10 pm

If there's any climate change at all, it's Godthropogenic, because my Bible tells me so!

ManchuCandidate October 31, 2012 at 4:11 pm

It'll be a cold day in hell when GOPers give up that oil/power/Koch money or admit that they were wrong.

memzilla October 31, 2012 at 4:17 pm

"Cold day in hell" could happen and they would still deny climate change was real.

Biel_ze_Bubba November 1, 2012 at 7:43 am

Just one cold day in Hell, and they'd be pointing to it for a decade as proof that there's no warming.

Someone should make a list of all the fundie dumbfucks that the GOP has appointed to science and technology committees. It's a deliberate effort to paralyze the work of Congress, and I think it's fucking treasonous.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 31, 2012 at 5:33 pm

Is there wind in hell?

Biel_ze_Bubba November 1, 2012 at 7:44 am

Tommmcatt_Again October 31, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I'm actually gay, so the alternate meaning of "throwing a bone" did not occur to me in this context.

Crank_Tango October 31, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Republicans believe in climate change–they just think it's the gay marriage that is causing it. Or HAARP. Could be HAARP.

GeorgiaBurning October 31, 2012 at 5:56 pm

High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program- the military set up high power shortwave and radar transmitters up in Alaska to pump megawatts of energy into the ionosphere near the magnetic pole. Its supposed to be for research and radio communication experiments (don't get me started THERE) but conspiracy theorists go loco about it. It's conceivable that it could fuzz up guidance on ICBM's heading over the polar region, among other things.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 31, 2012 at 5:59 pm

oh, then I totally blame that. Thanks!

tessiee October 31, 2012 at 6:19 pm

See, and here I was thinking HAARP was AARP for homos.

bobbert October 31, 2012 at 5:58 pm

High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. A real gummint (USAF, DARPA) research program that, iirc, tries to modify the ionosphere's electromagnetic properties to enhance (or possibly disrupt?) radio communication. It does this by shooting radio waves into the ionosphere (loosely speaking).

There is a conspiracy theory about it that it is actually a weather-control thing.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 31, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Substantial numbers of Republicans now dispute widely held scientific views, period.

Oh and the word is not "scientific 'views'", it's "facts"; and it's not "dispute", it's "deny, despite the fact that these facts are proven reality, and these Republicans are completely 100% wrong and anyone who refuses to believe it is a total fucking moron".

ManchuCandidate October 31, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Substantial numbers of GOPers are also stupid.

BaldarTFlagass October 31, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Substantial numbers of Americans are stupid; Democrats have a few of them, Libertarians a bit more, but the balance of them are Republicans.

Did that really happen? Did he have a relief Rolls already warmed up?

Tumblr stopped working too. And what are these "full day's worth of posts" of which you speak? All I get is this one. And the comment section is useable, but missing a style sheet or something.

BaldarTFlagass October 31, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Also, too:

I was looking at some Blartblart's Ghost article about climate change. In the comments one particularly ignant dipstick said: "Really, you think that the mortal man can effect the planet Earth….!!!!"

I very nearly registered just to tell him to ask all the fishermen on Cannery Row.

Oh, dear Bob. I went back to find the quote and ran across a response that was even worse.

"Read the bible once in a while…The Angels in the four corners of the earth are responsible for the weather.

NOT MAN NOR GLOBAL WARMING. When will man stop ""thinking" they have control over…anything?"

Ah. The Party of Personal Responsibility.

Okay. Now how do I wash off the stupid?

Lot_49 October 31, 2012 at 4:16 pm

"Political analyst" or "Republican/Democratic strategist" are cable news terms for "people with no qualifications to discuss anything but whom we want to put on teevee anyway," e.g.: Mark Halperin, Al Sharpton, Mary Matalin, anybody on Fox, etc.

Additional nominees welcome.

CindynEncinitas October 31, 2012 at 4:29 pm

For Republicans, climate change can only occur if the rape of the land, sea and air is legitimate because Mother Earth cannot then heal herself. But so far, the rape of the environment is illegitimate so no climate change.

I’m so confused.

VodkaGoGo October 31, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Joe Barton, a Congressman from Texas (of COURSE) believes that the wind is “God’s way of balancing heat.”

I forgot that he said this and I still don't really know what he meant by it. Is it like when a house is on fire in say, Queens NY and God sends the wind at it to balance the distribution of the fire to the rest of the neighborhood?

Shimkus was actually 1 of 3 reps who had a piece of Springfield when I lived there (basically gerrymandering the city and region so that you had 2 red and 1 blue district and not the opposite – the Dems just redid it, but I'm not sure to what effect). Every time I saw his constituent office (in a strip mall, natch) I was a) reminded of his idiotic comments about flooding and b) the irony that his district covered the local University of Illinois campus and hence one of the most secular/thoughtful parts of town. Of course, it also covered a shitload of idiots to drown out their voices, but it was like a double whammy to the professors there, most of who already viewed themselves as living in a mental backwater.

Botlrokit October 31, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Rainbows once meant that god would never destroy the world again. Congratulations, gays! Rainbows are now yours, because god defaulted.

You know, I could just sit and listen to Meghan talk for hours.

Okay, maybe listen is going too far.

i am watching bamz's press conference with gov chris christie.

gov chris christie visibly perked up when bamz mentioned the guy cooking for 18 hours.

There is a picture of Obama greeting Christie today. Christie looked like he was about to burst into tears and hug Obama. I've got some friends from the coast staying here now. They were with family through the storm. Couldn't get back out to their house, road-blocks, so when I contacted them, they ended up here. We went out today to 'clean-up'…..

Biel_ze_Bubba November 1, 2012 at 7:55 am

For all the fun we have at Gov. Crisco's expense, the guy is an honest dealer. So is Obama, and it's no surprise they actually get along well when the politics is put on the back burner. We could use more of these guys in government; with luck there would be more Dems than GOPpers, but even if not I'd gladly have more of them.

It would take God himself appearing in front of the entire GOP and saying, "Hey, don't put this one at my feet! You did this to yourselves!" to change the minds of conservatives on this issue.

Actually, I'm not even sure that would do it. They'd just call God a RINO.

Why is the site so wanky today? I guess there's something in this series of tubes.

Once again, I'd like to brag that I brought Joe Barton to the verge of tears during his first term in Congress. He came to our grad level policy class at Texas A&M and didn't anticipate that we'd ask him actual questions. I asked him how kissing Newtie's arse benefited his constituents. I said it slightly nicer than that. He blathered, I wouldn't let go, asking for specifics on what the arse kissing did for the district. His hands started to shake, he started clearing his throat, and he looked like he's chew off his own foot if that would have gotten him out of this.

Jus_Wonderin October 31, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Awesome.

I hope you got an ExtraPlus A in that class.

She's still more concerned about local warming.

With so much photoshopping the world will run out of pixels!

Gentlemen, we in the free world now face a pixel gap. It's them or us. Now, let's do our patriotic duty and overtake our enemy with all the damned pixels we can mine!

I've been hoarding mine.

Baba_NinjaCat12 October 31, 2012 at 5:25 pm

At this point in time, it's too little, too late to reverse global warming. Washington, D.C. will be under water in the near future but on the bright side, they'll get a wicked wave.

I made my appointment to have an anthropogenic sex change. I have been saving up for years.

OK, now I can apparently access Wonkette again? Woot!

What the hell was THAT all about?

Turns out there was a family of raccoons living under the hood.

Zombie raccoons?

How can one believe in Intelligent Design and still account for Steve King (embarrassment – Iowa)?

Genesis 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.

Here God tells Isaac that his descendents (Hebrews) will be as numerous as the stars. Considering the number of stars there are in the universe, that would have to be on the order of 10 20 Jewish people.

Until God makes a hell of a lot more Jews, I ain't buying that shit…

avocado876 October 31, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Love Wonkette. But please a) spell properly, and b) don't correct people when they don't need to be corrected.

First: Meghan McCain's name is spelled "Meghan McCain," not "Megan McCain," as you've spelled it four of four times in this post, and in the headline. And this — "So are we still going to go with climate change not being real fellow republicans" — which you've marked with a cute little "[sic]"… Read it again. What's wrong with it, dude? If anything, "Megan" is guilty of omitting a comma after "real." And before you do insist on that comma (if that is indeed your beef with Meghan's tweet), ask yourself if it was worth the snark of a "sic," and also ask yourself whether a missing, optional comma is a larger or smaller infraction than spelling a public figure's name wrong five times in a short blog post.

Thing is, Chris (sorry, Kris: same shit though, right?), sites like this don't work if they don't get the basics right.

Incitefully_Joe October 31, 2012 at 10:18 pm

God was probably the reason I couldn't read wonkete at work today.

God was also the reason the vacation day I was supposed to have tomorrow got recinded because staffing issues.

God's a dick, is my point. This is probably also why he keeps gifting women with rape-babies.

docterry6973 October 31, 2012 at 10:43 pm

Will the GOP continue to deny climate change? Of course they will, right up to the minute that they call it a disaster and blame the Democrats for it.

Negropolis November 1, 2012 at 1:59 am

Well, since colors weren't invented until much later, it has to be narrowed down to black, white and fifty shades of gray….

BTWBFDIMHO November 1, 2012 at 2:15 am

I wish that was Romney's boat and there was no Photoshopping.

MonkeyBiz November 1, 2012 at 11:02 am

I don't know whether it would be possible to titty fuck some sense into Meghan McCain, but I'd sure like to try.

BeefHardcake November 1, 2012 at 11:23 am

For a political analyst, Miss McCain sure makes a great paperweight.

"Several scientists from the world's leading scientific institutions will speak at the press conference."

And a dozen Teatards will stand in the back chanting "USA! USA!" Faux News blowhards will then bloviate about how the 'tards clearly won the debate.

Speaking of magazines, when is our Megan going to pose for her spread in Penthouse?
