Hmm, one way of picturing him, certainly, but I’ve always seen him very differently—as a sullen clodhopper peering resentfully up at us as we circle serenely overhead.

Strabismus
notwithstanding, who's 'we?' My posting was directed at those with whom I was bantering.

I didn't know I had included you in my posting. I've always regarded you as intelligent, albeit misguided...

C’mon folks, don’t panic, have as many children as you want. In expiation, support public policies to limit carbon emissions to acceptable levels, and vote all AGW-deniers out of office star.ting with the orange-faced baboon in the Oval Office. . .. Individual morality counts for nothing in these matters, public policy, everything.

Well, any additional human causes quite a lot of CO2 emissions.

Rasmussen has DJT at 51% today....the 'unproductive spurt' is on a roll. The irony of that description is laughable.

Imagine a politician that is actually getting things done...
Promises made, promises kept.
