The modern GOP is so filled with lunatics, sometimes any satire I could dream up just couldn't compare to the real thing. Witness, for example, the powerful Texas state legislator who thinks the Earth DOES NOT revolove around the sun.

Yeah, um, that "theory" espoused by that wack Copernicus was just a Jewish conspiracy to discredit the Old Testament. I don 't know whether to laugh or cry.

But please, for the love of all that is America, will someone bitch slap this man!?!

Are you thinking that will bring him to his senses or is it just for fun? I second the motion, either way.

I am thinking for fun. Or maybe just to smack him forward a few centuries, like into the 19th...

The people at http://www.fixedearth.com/ obviously don't believe in the evolution of web design, as shown by their third-rate 1997-style homepage!

Now you know why Molly Ivins did her best work covering Texas politicians . . .

Whoa, Cliffy. I had to go 4 links deep 'cause I didn't believe this was real. Even now, I just can't believe we have ELECTED officials like this.

I don't know how much more I can take. Seriously. I've never seen things this bad. Sweet Jeebus.

My husband e-mailed that story to me from work yesterday. He's a research scientist and he said this story was circulating all over the building. They all said the same thing as you, they didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Oh.My.Gawd.
This is as humiliating to us liberals as it is for Dubya to claim he's from here.
From the bottom of my heart, I apologize to the world for these ignorant-ass politicians here.
I'm now going to go outside & kick some rocks.

Whereas everybody with half a brain knows that the Earth revolves around me.

I agree with Ed. It revolves around me.


Oh, but I kid the Ed.

I cannot fathom what these morons use for brains. I'd make a joke about what-next-the-world-is-flat?, but that's most likely going to be their next Big Claim.

DO NOT BITCHSLAP!

REPEAT, DO NOT BITCHSLAP!

What we should make sure happens instead is that every GOP pol running for president should be asked time and again if they support the Republican chairman of the House Appropriations Committee in his notion that the idea that the earth revolves around the sun is a Jewish conspiracy to discredit the Old Testament.

We want them fighting themselves. We want them making themselves disreputable. We don't want help them distance themselves from their own crazies, because that's how those crazies got into Congress in the first place.
