Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall is leading the charge to persuade Jim Lehrer to ask a question about global warming during the presidential debates on Wednesday.
Yes, Maggie Fox and her Climate Reality Project (CRaP), along with a variety of other green lobby organizations, all wholly owned subsidiaries of the Democrat Party, submitted 160,000 petitions, which sounds like a lot until you think about it.
It comes to about 16,000 petitions per group and this is not exactly a discerning crowd. One should be able to get a similar amount of signatures from the same constituency to ban dihydrogen monoxide because of its links to drowning, after all.
We can only guess, of course, as to the nature of the questions that the enviros would like asked.
They might go like this: “Gov. Romney, how do you square your heretical doubts about anthropogenic global warming with the fact that your wife suffers from MS, one of the many ills tied to climate change?”
Or, “Gov. Romney, how can you be both a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and doubt global warming? How can you risk the lives of so many millions of people for your cheesy religious beliefs?”
Then there’s the old reliable: “President Obama, you have accomplished much to combat global warming merely by being here. Do you have room on your mantle for another Nobel prize?”
We’ll see on Wednesday whether or not Mr. Lehrer succumbs to the CRaP.
