What a terribly cynical thing to say about the decent and high-minded paragons of science who are trying to do no less than save the entire planet from the meaningless and foolhardy activities of so many horrible humans infesting it! How DARE you imply crass, politically manipulative, financially driven motivations lie behind such exalted public-spiritedness!?!?!? ps - I bet some o' them fellers could cut you a heck of a deal on some prime FL real estate :)

Heh... from a genetic point of view, you could argue that our current President is not really black, unless you're going by something like Virginia's very racist turn-of-the-20th-century "one drop" laws. And isn't it disgustingly patriarchal to label Mr. Obama black just because his father is black? Wouldn't it be more matriarchal and less misogynistic and PC and so forth to call him white because his mother was white?

The notion that one could not possibly have any criteria other than race for being supportive of or opposed to a political figure is a remarkably close-minded, judgemental position to take; such an observation, unfortunately, is generally lost on those holding to that particular bit of assessment.

Yes, well, in the Orwellian Brave New World (Yes, that's remarkably mixed up, but you know what I mean :) ) racism is by definition attitudes of whites toward non-whites. Thus by definition blacks and hispanics and orientals cannot be racists. Showing outrage over an interracial marriage isn't racism, it's protecting one's minority cultural heritage from obliteration by assimilation by the dominant racist white culture, or somesuch tomfoolery. Gotta keep up with this stuff, neighbor! :)

No they don't. After all, to coin a phrase, "There is none so blind as one who WILL not see."

It's about TIME this started happening. If you look back over the mainstream media, there has been observed a roughly 30 year cycle of climate change hysteria, oscillating between "OMGWTFBBQ the planet will melt and/or burn!" and "Ice Age! Ice Age! Ice Age! We'll all freeze and starve!"; said cycle trails the actual climate shifts by anywhere from one to ten years. The press and the grant-hungry scientific (*snrk*) community are just clinging more tenaciously than previously to the warming mantra; they've fallen behind in the popular-hysteria cycle. Let's get WITH it, people! Shorts are out and parkas are IN!

And even on the off chance he wins, his policies won't drift too far from hers to rock Janus' two-faced big-government boat.
