Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Bombshell: More Climategate e-mails show scientists awfully concerned about “the cause” and P/R

Ace has a great rundown, and you would be well served to read it.  One of many, many damning excerpts from the e-mails:

<3373> Bradley: I’m sure you agree–the Mann/Jones GRL paper was truly pathetic and should never have been published. I don’t want to be associated with that 2000 year “reconstruction”.

<3115> Mann:  By the way, when is Tom C going to formally publish his roughly 1500 year reconstruction??? It would help the cause to be able to refer to that reconstruction as confirming Mann and Jones, etc.

<3940> Mann:  They will (see below) allow us to provide some discussion of the synthetic example, referring to the J. Cimate paper (which should be finally accepted upon submission of the revised final draft), so that should help the cause a bit.

<0810> Mann: I gave up on Judith Curry a while ago. I don’t know what she think’s she’s doing, but its not helping the cause.

As Ace puts it, “You know what you get when you mix science and politics? You get politics, period.”

Why, it’s almost as if scientists know they’re peddling junk science and don’t care as they pursue funding grants and environut adulation!  Almost, that is.

Pelosi: I’m a Catholic, only minus the conscience

San Fransicko’s a godless cesspool anyway, so this will fit in nicely.  Quote:

Those who dispute that characterization “may not like the language,’’ she said, “but the truth is what I said. I’m a devout Catholic and I honor my faith and love it . . . but they have this conscience thing’’ that she insists put women at physical risk, although Catholic providers strongly disagree.

Yeah, can you believe the nerve of Catholics obeying their doctrine like she doesn’t?  Can you believe that they actually have a conscience?  How did that happen?

Obama indicts himself and his policies by invoking Hoover

From the Historian In Chief:

So this competition for new jobs and businesses and middle-class security, that’s the race I know we can win. But you don’t win it by saying every American is on their own. We’re not going to win it if we just hand out more tax cuts to people who don’t need them, let companies play by their own rules without any restriction, and we just hope somehow that the success of the wealthiest few translates in the prosperity for everybody else.

We have tried that, by the way. We tried it for 10 years. It’s part of what got into the mess that we’re in. It doesn’t work. It didn’t work for Herbert Hoover, when it was called trickle-down economics during the Depression. It didn’t work between 2000 and 2008, and it won’t work today.

There’s just one problem with that…it’s not even remotely true.

Obama is dead wrong. Data from the White House’s own website shows that Hoover increased, rather than cut, spending in the Great Depression, and ran up deficits that were huge by historical standards.

As Ed points out, “Hoover’s spending policies look a lot like Obama’s.”  Hoovermania: Catch the fee-vuh!

Quote of the day, “sad pathetic California loser” edition

I do pray that leeches like this don’t get near a ballot box, ever again.  Money quote from an article about the failure of the so-called “Super Committee”:

“I think the whole situation is nutty,” said Jan O’Connell, a 47-year-old artist from Los Angeles. “Somebody’s got to save us, and if the government can’t, who can?

Ho. Ly. Shiite.

I’ve got a radical idea.  How about you fend for yourself and stop depending on the government to “save” you?
