Republicans Say The Darndest Things
Obviously, every time a national Republican says something ridiculous, bigoted or downright idiotic we all hear about it. But what's even more scary, is what they can get away with saying locally with almost nobody challenging them.
Case in point, from our friend OhDave, a local radio motor mouth in the Cincinnati market, named Mike McConnell (I have quickly come to the conclusion that anyone with the name McConnell must be an idiot). Enjoy his pearls of wisdom:
If you're firm believer that we're causing the globe to get warmer I'm just curious do you believe that when we launch rockets we knock the earth out of orbit? Because that's how much impact man actually has on the planet. Launching rockets doesn't affect the orbit; driving your car doesn't make it warmer. I know a lot of scientists say I'm wrong on this but I'm sticking to my guns because I'm pigheaded...It goes on like this.
In a sane media environment not only would this guy not be allowed on the radio, but he wouldnt' be allowed to breed and would be put to good use as a crash-test dummy. But this is what we've got out there. So watch your kids. The heck with Janet Jackson's nipple, they could be listening to this moron.
