Call them Crazy, but JUST CALL THEM!

Pierson's Puppeteer
And tell them what you think.  The current GOP field (aside from the Hindmost, Jon Huntsman) is a collection of cowardly, Neanderthal twits the likes of which the world has never seen.
I could point out that Mr. Perry is buying into a truly crazy conspiracy theory, which asserts that thousands of scientists all around the world are on the take, with not one willing to break the code of silence. I could also point out that multiple investigations into charges of intellectual malpractice on the part of climate scientists have ended up exonerating the accused researchers of all accusations. But never mind: Mr. Perry and those who think like him know what they want to believe, and their response to anyone who contradicts them is to start a witch hunt.

So how has Mr. Romney, the other leading contender for the G.O.P. nomination, responded to Mr. Perry’s challenge? In trademark fashion: By running away. In the past, Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, has strongly endorsed the notion that man-made climate change is a real concern. But, last week, he softened that to a statement that he thinks the world is getting hotter, but “I don’t know that” and “I don’t know if it’s mostly caused by humans.” Moral courage!
When did becoming anti-science become cool?  Oh yeah, in 1980 when we elected our first Jesus-in-Chief, Saint Ronald Reagan.
