Libby Libel

Posted by Ryan on February 12, 2007

So, explain this to me again… Where’s the story here?  Richard Armitage leaked Plame’s name “multiple times” to Bob Woodward in June of 2003, a fact made public months ago!  So, where’s the apology from Fitzgerald to Libby, Cheney, etc., as well as the American people for a gross misuse of taxpayers funds?  I’m not holding my breath, but I’m sure he’ll still make Cheney testify.

Gore Fails Mental Czech Up

Posted by Mike on February 12, 2007

Czech President Vaclav Klaus has stated the unstated obvious. The U.N. panel on global warming does not deserve the deference (or religious devotion) given to it by the left because it is a political, not a scientific body. Somehow the media is unable to appreciate the distinction.

After criticizing the sacrament-like status given to U.N. political leftists, Kraus then goes on to show us the best New Europe has to offer with this gem about Al Gore:

Q: Don’t you believe that we’re ruining our planet?•

A: I will pretend that I haven’t heard you. Perhaps only Mr Al Gore may be saying something along these lines: a sane person can’t. I don’t see any ruining of the planet, I have never seen it, and I don’t think that a reasonable and serious person could say such a thing.

Heh.  Any world leader who can slam the U.N. while publicly questioning Al Gore’s sanity is A-OK in my book.

We have stated our views on this topic before. Essentially, we think global warming is a scientific theory that should be tested scientifically. Climatologists with differing hypotheses should be allowed to pursue their research without fear of reprisals for the conclusions. Unfortunately, those who adhere to theory of man-made global warming have engaged in a sort of blacklisting against scientists with whom they disagree. As we have seen, threats of defunding and decertification are common. That more than anything tells me a great deal about which side is and which side is not confident in the methodologies underlying their opinions.

I wish that scientific questions could be answered solely by scientists. Alas, everything is political to these people.
