Gingrich and Kerry to Debate

Not presidential though, it’s climate.  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.  Jeremy Jacobs has the full story.

I couldn’t help but be amused by this:

“As 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,” Kerry added.

Really?  When someone tells me that we’re headed towards a global catastrophe, it tells me that I damn well 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.  I’ve tried for a long time to find a reason to dislike him, but it’s tough.  I saw a replay of his debate with Mario Cuomo last night on C-Span, and he was as impressive as ever.  You have to hand it to him–he makes succinct and clear points in a very common sense way.

I don’t believe in everything he says, but I do have to give him credit for the fact that he does.  Whether you agree or disagree with him, it’s hard to argue with his sincerity.
