  Telling It Like He Wishes It Happened That Way

Here’s Chris Christie Being A Dick To Some Girl, Because It Is A Day

America needs him.
He’s still got it So Chris Christie is stumping around New Hampshire, clinging to his debate slot in the Top Tier of Donald Trump and the Other Republican Losers like it’s the last however many $1500 buys you in hot dogs and beers at the MetLife Stadium concession stand. Here he is in Manchester, saying climate change is real, and of course humans contribute to it: Read more on Here’s Chris Christie Being A Dick To Some Girl, Because It Is A Day…

Mean Obama Regime Now Making Short-People Jokes About Alaska’s Favoritest Mountain

Wuss Mountain, more like.
Wuss Mountain, more like. Will Obama stop at NOTHING? First, like a common dictator, he changed the name of America’s tallest mountain to some funny foreign Alaskan word “Denali,” just because that’s what the Alaskans always called it anyway, and despite the fact that the change made a solid HANDFUL of Ohio Republican politicians cry. Then he dared to travel all the way to Alaska, to rub it in everybody’s face (and by “it,” we mean his dick), even though Alaskan Junior Captain Dumbass-in-training Bristol Palin TOLD him not to come. And then, to make sure all the Republicans spend the rest of the week weeping into their dirty Fleshlights, he said “climate change” a bunch of times, like such a thing even exists.

John Kasich Likes Planet Earth OK, Not Ready For Serious Commitment

Let's not get too carried away with this 'save the planet' nonsense
Let’s not get too carried away with this ‘save the planet’ nonsense Somewhere in the wilds of New Hampshire, John Kasich (R-And Who Are You Again?) is doing a campaign event, and WaPo’s Dave Weigel is tweeting up a storm. Of particular interest is this Deep Thought on the environment: Read more on John Kasich Likes Planet Earth OK, Not Ready For Serious Commitment…

Fox News Tells Obama To Go Be A Weather Girl If He’s So Worried About Climate

Why does anyone care about permafrost? You can always get a touch-up at the salon.
Why does anyone care about permafrost? You can always get a touch-up at the salon. Barack Obama may be visiting the Arctic this week to call attention to climate change — even though self-appointed Alaska spokestwit Bristol Palin told him to stay away — but Fox News is not impressed with a bunch of dumb stories about vanishing permafrost and coastal villages being eaten by the sea. Fox wants to know why Obama thinks climate is even a thing, when there are other bad things he should be stopping, like crime. Sure, yes, how about crime, Obama? On “The Five” Tuesday, host Kimberly Guilfoyle wanted to know just why Obama is wasting his time talking about something that might not even be real!

Bobby Jindal Begs Obama Not To Say Dumb Climate Change Stuff On Katrina Anniversary

Obama probably shouldn't mention weather either.
Obama probably shouldn’t mention weather either. Big anniversary happening on Saturday! Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana, and the storm and the levee breaches it caused altered the course of history for New Orleans and surrounding areas. And, as governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal knows the city is in danger again, this time from that foreigner president of ours. What if Obama gallivants into New Orleans and says, “Climate change is real,” or “Science exists,” or “Bobby Jindal is a fucking moron”? Something had to be done, so Jindal writed hisself a letter to the president, explaining that the topic of climate change makes him uncomfortable, so please do not say mean words like that: Read more on Bobby Jindal Begs Obama Not To Say Dumb Climate Change Stuff On Katrina Anniversary…

Islamic Leaders Call For End To Fossil Fuels, Will Probably Jihad Your SUV

Shouldn't that be Hooray, we have hydrogen?
Shouldn’t that be “Hooray, we have hydrogen”? Well, this ought to inspire some conspiracy theories! Tuesday, an International Islamic Climate Change Symposium held in Istanbul (not Constantinople) declared that climate change is real, happening now, and caused by human activity. The group called for immediate action to slow the warming of the planet, because Allah would rather not see mass extinctions, thank you. Considering that wingnuts are already convinced climate science is just a scam to make scientists rich, we’re guessing that any combination of the words “Islam” and “global warming” will cause more than a few rightwing heads to explode. Yes, Louie Gohmert, we’re looking at you. Read more on Islamic Leaders Call For End To Fossil Fuels, Will Probably Jihad Your SUV…

Carly Fiorina Says All The Stupid On Climate Change And Then Some

It's not because she's a woman, everybody just wants to see the demon sheep again.
That lady Republican in pink, Carly Fiorina, is enjoying her 15 minutes, so she’s working overtime to barf out as much conservative stupid as she can before her time is up. Look, here she is talking stuff about climate change with America’s favorite hardest-hitting interviewer, Katie Couric. Expert tree-hugger David Roberts provides a Vox listiclesplainer of how every single word out of Fiorina’s mouth is factually inaccurate, and you can look at charts and graphs and percentages and SCIENCE FACTS if you want to get your nerd on.

John Kasich: Climate Change Is Real, And We Must Ignore It Immediately

This is a really unfair screenshot. But lookit the funny face!
Remember how, during the Republican primary debate Thursday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R-Who?) seemed almost sane compared to the other goofballs on the stage? Heck, unlike almost all the other not-a-scientists in the Republican field, he’s even said that climate change is real, although he doesn’t think we should do anything about it. On NBC’s Meet The Press Sunday, Chuck Todd congratulated him for being among the “big winners of Thursday’s debate” — largely on the merits of not coming off like a seething ragebag, we suppose — and mentioned a Time magazine piece comparing Kasich to Pope Francis, because “inclusive.” Kasich immediately backed away from the comparison, since the pope is way too much of an environmental extremist.

President Obama Sends Climate Change Memo To America’s Idiots

So remember how President Obama planned to spend his summer vacation trying to save the world? Done and done, apparently. Why the president is still convinced we need some sort of “plan” to deal with our impending doom is utterly beyond us. We all saw Sen. Jim Inhofe’s snowball indisputably proving climate change is a hoax perpetrated by some dumb money-grubbing scientists. And the pope. And the rest of the world. But the president has decided that trying to cram clean power down our throats is a good use of his time. When he’s not on the golf course, that is, HAW HAW HAW.

Donald Trump Knows Climate Change Is Just Classy, Luxurious Version Of Weather

CLASSY
Donald Trump would build a YOOOOOOOGE fence around climate change, if it even existed: “The real climate change is going to be nuclear climate change if we’re not smart and tough and very, very careful because that’s a big danger and that’s a real danger,” Trump said. “I think Obama just said that the biggest threat that we have on the planet today is climate change, and a lot of people are saying, did he really say that? We have people chopping off heads and he’s talking about climate change. I call it weather. I call it weather. You know, the weather changes.” Read more on Donald Trump Knows Climate Change Is Just Classy, Luxurious Version Of Weather…

Hillary Clinton Whips Out Her Big Science Brain To Make Republicans Jealous

Science: It's hard.
Here’s Hillary Clinton’s new campaign ad, a pleasant if not incredibly edgy Old-Horror-Movie smack at all the Republicans who are simultaneously not scientists but 103 percent sure there’s no such thing as Global Warming. Wisely, the gothic horror subtitles are kept to a minimum, giving the not-scientists plenty of time to say dumb things so we can yell at the screen, “No, you’re wrong! That’s not right at all! You are a stupid, stupid person to think that!” And it closes with a web address for Clinton’s email sign-up page, although it takes a couple more clicks to actually reach her detailed policy goals on renewable energy. She takes the radical position that climate change is real, when any fool knows she should be telling women to get married and have babies for a better America.

Conservatives Hate New Pope Now, For Being Dumb Commie Tree-Hugger

Is he even Catholic?
They really don’t make popes like they used to. You know, the kind who may have sorta kinda been in the Hitler Youth — but reluctantly! And then kinda sorta tried to cover up all that unpleasantness about Catholic priests raping all the children, and bishops keeping it on the down low, when he was a lowly cardinal. And then, as Lord God King Pope of the Universe, gone around talking about how God made girls like this, and God made boys like that, and homos and feminists are fucking it all up, goddamnit, plus those uppity radical feminist nuns, boy, they’re a real problem.

John Lewis Is A Comics Superhero, Prepare For Ludicrous Speed, And Earth 2.0: Your Saturday Nerd-Out

He went for period accuracy where possible, but left out the tear gas and clubs
Happy Saturday, and welcome to your moment of Nerding: Just a few stories that we thought were pretty cool because they appeal to the geek in us. Real Life Superhero Cosplays As Himself For starters, how about congressman John Lewis of Georgia, attending his second Comic-Con last Saturday and getting into the whole cosplay scene, dressing as a character from March: Book 2, the comics memoir that he co-wrote with former campaign aide Andrew Aydin, with art by Nate Powell. To be specific, Lewis decided to dress up as the “John Lewis in 1965” character from the book. The Washington Post had a lovely story this week about how it all happened: Read more on John Lewis Is A Comics Superhero, Prepare For Ludicrous Speed, And Earth 2.0: Your Saturday Nerd-Out…

Lindsey Graham Isn’t A Scientist, But He Thinks Scientists Know Stuff. He’s Doomed.

Yes it's a pony. But it could have been a pic of Lindsey Graham. Count your blessings.
Loath though we are to ever say anything especially nice about Lindsey Graham, given his penchant for wanting to send Americans to bomb as many distant lands as possible, we have to give him an “attaboy” on his remarkably sane remarks about climate change on that Seth Meyers TV show t’other night.

Ted Cruz Super Excited By NASA Pluto Flyby, Still Wants To Murder NASA

He's the Urban Spaceman, baby, here comes the twist: He hates scie-en-tists!
Hey, how about that exciting NASA flyby of Pluto? The incredibly cool New Horizons spacecraft passed within about 7,800 miles of the dwarf planet, and got the most detailed photographs of its surface ever. And Sen. Ted Cruz, who fancies himself a huge fan of the Final Frontier, was pretty jazzed about it too, telling Politico, “This is a historic milestone in space exploration,” and informing the National Journal that this was an example of “NASA doing what it does best, pushing the boundaries of our imagination by traveling to the unknown.” Because, as we’ve noted before, what Ted Cruz thinks NASA needs to be doing is concentrating on stuff that is far away from Earth — the real space science, not all the stupid wasteful research that NASA has been doing on our own planet, which isn’t in space at all, and also isn’t even good science, as Ted Cruz understands science. Which is badly. Read more on Ted Cruz Super Excited By NASA Pluto Flyby, Still Wants To Murder NASA…
