- a moron
- another moron
Well, given their earlier answers to similar questions during the primary campaign (see here, here and here), none of this should have come as much of a shock. But it’s still something to see when the anti-science attitudes of West Virginia political leaders and candidates are put out there so clearly . . .
At last night’s debate between the Democratic and Republican gubernatorial candidates (the broadcasters group that sponsored the event refused to allow third-party candidates to take part), Hoppy Kercheval of West Virginia MetroNews asked: Do you believe man’s actions are causing the world to warm?
Republican Bill Maloney replied simply: We’re in a cooling cycle.
Democrat Earl Ray Tomblin said: Once again, there are differences of opinion as to whether we’re in global warming now.
Now, we all expect Republican politicians to choose the moron option when asked anything about science -- after all, their science education comes in the form of packets of high-denomination used bills from Exxon and the Koch Brothers -- but it's alarming to find a Democrat doing the same.
Proof of human beings co-existing with DINOs, I suppose . . .
