Bottom feeders at the National Review

Dec 30, 2010 in Clueless Conservatives

Intellectual gods:

The blizzard is definitely a force for conservatism, and not only because it has had the global-warming crowd scrambling for explanations.

No, we’ve always had the same standard explanation that anybody with the slightest knowledge of statistics can understand, and you’re an idiot Charlotte Hays. For further evidence, refer back to the first half of your sentence, “The blizzard is definitely a force for conservatism.” As an Iowan I can surely attest that it was always so horrible when the street sweepers cleared and salted our roads after a blizzard. Sometimes it took them an extra day. The horror.

The main point is that anybody, and I mean anybody, who makes a global warming crack during a blizzard is nothing more than a smartass, and likely a scientifically illiterate one as well. Nothing in global warming theory says there will be no more blizzards. Nothing. Nowhere. Never. Nobody said it, nobody ever will. If Charlotte Hays is intelligent enough to understand that, then she’s a pathological panderer. Not that being such keeps one out of the National Review.
