Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

James Inhofe thought the fact that there is snow on the ground in February is proof that global warming is a myth, despite the fact that the globe is measurably warmer.

It's hard to escape the conclusion that a certain segment of the population are making themselves willfully stupid, at least as regards their understanding of the world around them.

I guess it's not that far from the Laffer Curve to throwing snowballs on the floor of the Senate.
