Republicans release their closing argument

And they are just beating the deadline by doing so. Satirist Andy Borowitz offers this nuanced report.

Wannabe vice prez Ryan: Government should stay out of hurricanes

That’s what satirist Andy Borowitz has the presumptive veep saying in this hilarious piece as Hurricane Isaac steers toward Florida.

Too bad Timothy Egan didn’t include the word “conservation” in his NY Times op-ed column of today. But no matter. He made his point in spot-on fashion. Science and Republicans? Crackpot yes, but science?

Fat cat urged to bankroll anti-Obama hatefest

Here’s another cut-to-the-chase column from Carl Hiaasen in Florida (a novelist who also writes a weekly column for the Miami Herald).

In Tee Vee gig, Santorum buttresses his resume for dumbness

“I was talking about the radical environmentalists,” Santorum said, suggesting that they believe man should protect the earth, rather than “steward its resources.” “I think that is a phony ideal.

The ‘candidates’ on climate change

Rick Santorum: “We were put on this earth as creatures of God to have dominion over the earth, to use it wisely but for our benefit, not the earth’s benefit.”

How is “our benefit” different from “earth’s benefit?” Santorum wouldn’t know because he’s a moron.

No use asking Mitt ’cause he doesn’t believe in anything but himself.

And Gingrich… I think I saw him playing the loud, spoiled kid in “Pewee’s Big Adventure.”
