Not presidential though, it’s climate.Â What once was touted as a concern for humanity has now officially been polarized by the Republicrats as a way to sell books and get some “look at me” time.Â Â Jeremy JacobsÂ has the full story.
I couldn’t help but be amused by this:
â€œAs a father, when someone tells me that within the next decade, if we don’t deal with global warming, our children and grandchildren may deal with global catastrophe, that tells me I damn well better do whatever I can to help make Washington deal with this responsibly,â€ Kerry added.
Really?Â When someone tells me that we’re headed towards a global catastrophe, it tells me that I damn wellÂ better figure out if this guy is full of shit before I work myself into a panic unnecessarily.
I tried to find something in there to make fun of Newt as well, just to be fair, but couldn’t.Â I’ve tried for a long time to find a reason to dislike him, but it’s tough.Â I saw a replay of his debate with Mario Cuomo last night on C-Span, and he was as impressive as ever.Â You have to hand it to him–he makes succinct and clear points in a very common sense way.
I don’t believe inÂ everything he says, but I do have to give him credit for the fact that he does.Â Whether you agree or disagree with him, it’s hard to argue with his sincerity.
