Quote of the Day


"When we take a position that isn't willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said, what the National Academy of Science has said about what is causing climate change and man's contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science, and, therefore, in a losing position... To be clear, I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy."

-- Jon Huntsman

Living proof that not all Republicans these days are completely divorced from reality. Although I fear that enough of them are that a relatively sane guy like Huntsman doesn't stand a chance.

By the way, here's Tweety kicking the living crap out of the unfortunately named Reince Priebus on this topic and a few pertinent others.

Does anyone ever just answer the question on these shows?

I remember reading the article about him on Esquire last month thinking that he would never get the Republican nomination.

I really hope somebody on President Obamas team was watching this. RNC Chairman Prince Reibus just gave him tacit permission to start kicking large volumes of ass.

but what an interesting general election it would be if they would nominate Huntsman--intelligent debates instead of insane ones....
