Not quite Steven Hawking

Right-wingers have a strange relationship with science. They don’t do it, they don’t like it, and they don’t understand it in the least. But they employ it frequently in arguments as a trump card. Like: Studies show that guns prevent violent crime, you idiots. But of course it turns out that’s not what the studies show. And that the best research, if it’s even applicable, really supports a different view, usually the opposite one. That’s when science turns into a corrupt endeavor practiced by weasels who are in it for the money. Or for the fame. Or for any one of those other gaudy lures that a rigorous discipline is always fraught with. Also, scientists are stupid.

Dear Comrade No. 2:

Science is not, in and of itself, a leftwing plot. For that to be true scientists would have to be cool people, not the mathematically-gifted, socially awkward wallflowers who never really had friends- or dates- in high school.

It’s our old friend. John “gay goatee” Ransom.

Elbert Einstein was the greatest theoretical physicist ever. He had rather childish views about money, economics and politics however.

Elbert was it? What an intelligent critique. As you can see, John is a know-it-all. He reads our e-mails, he shits himself with laughter, then he writes an unintentionally funny column. After pruning his goatee with sheep shears, he thumbs through his indexed copy of The Humor of Milton Friedman for inspiration. It’s a good life.

The cool kids in politics- the people smarmy enough to get elected- use science and scientists to make the scientists feel cool and important. And then they get them to opt-in to their plan to “save the world” . .

Let’s face it; science is just a creative accounting gig.

Pretend to be a scientist’s friend and he’ll tell you whatever you want to hear. What a bunch of dorks, especially when compared to the koolster likes of the “Finance Editor for Townhall Finance”. A man like that’s a freakin’ fact-juggling Fonzie.

Inflation: It’s Back
John Ransom | February 18, 2011

Data from China, the UK and the World Bank weighed in on Tuesday, revealing the key dangers the US economy faces from the economic and social policies of the Obama administration’s loose money program. The news makes the plainest case for budget cuts and increased deficit reduction favored by some members of Congress.

Inflation, once relegated to the historical trivia of the late 1970s and early 1980s, is back.

Inflation is back. Back to where it started, near zero. Top notch analysis there.

Ignore the Rally
John Ransom | February 28, 2011

Ignore the rally.

Now is the time to filter out the background noise that comes with market rallies and concentrate on individual equities.

Don’t trust the market! I checked this: The Dow Jones at the end of February 2011 sat at 12,226. And Friday it closed at 14,712. So you can see why the Fiscal CFOs from the Finance Division of Townhall Finance appointed him “Finance Editor.” He may not be Elbert Einstein smart, but hey who is? Wait don’t tell me – Elbert Einstein?

But that’s only part of it. Scientists also let leftwingers off the hook for denying many proven scientific theories.

For example, leftwingers deny the link between breast cancer and abortions, the pill and cancer, although the science is clear.

Hello, friends, and welcome to the American Cancer Society Hour!

Another large, prospective study was reported on by Harvard researchers in 2007. This study included more than 100,000 women who were between the ages of 29 and 46 at the start of the study in 1993. These women were followed until 2003 . .

After adjusting for known breast cancer risk factors, the researchers found no link between either spontaneous or induced abortions and breast cancer.

The California Teachers Study also reported on more than 100,000 women in 2008. Researchers asked the women in 1995 about past induced and spontaneous abortions. While the women were being followed in the study, more than 3,300 developed invasive breast cancer. There was no difference in breast cancer risk between the group who had either spontaneous or induced abortions and those who had not had an abortion.

Ding dong, who’s that at the door? It’s the National Cancer Institute.

A number of studies suggest that current use of oral contraceptives (birth control pills) appears to slightly increase the risk of breast cancer, especially among younger women. However, the risk level goes back to normal 10 years or more after discontinuing oral contraceptive use.

Women who use oral contraceptives have reduced risks of ovarian and endometrial cancer. This protective effect increases with the length of time oral contraceptives are used.

So that would be yes, the science is clear. What isn’t clear is why someone like John spends any time calling other people stupid. John appears to be a fine example of what he so publicly detests.


S.E. Cupp is one dumb atheist

You know what? Religion is kinda funny. It requires you to be intolerant. Doesn’t it? You can only believe in one single thing. Which means everybody else is wrong. Your best friend, your barber, the mailman, they’re all wrong. Every one of them. This makes America a fractious place, where virtually nobody can get along. Everybody thinks they’re better and smarter than everybody else. It’s sad, but true. Religion just makes it hard for us to be friends. Seeing as how me, S.E. Cupp, am the Pope of Brains, you might imagine I’d be disappointed with my fellow man. No. I’m disappointed with myself. An intolerant whacko like me shouldn’t ever be president. Yeshua rayonpants, citizens. Thanks everybody for watching. And I’d hang myself, but you know, hell.


No point in right-wing bloggers getting mental about it

If you were to trundle yourself over to Powerline blog (why? I don’t know), you could read all sorts of things. They write about the election, they write about politics, they write about the media, they write about culture.

In one post, Scott re-visits my hometown and remembers when he first saw it:

So far as I could tell, Bob and I were the only two people in Venice who were working for a living.

Indeed. Well observed. Over the last 30 years, neighboring Santa Monica has stayed essentially the same, and it’s completely different:

This time around, however, I found that bums were liberally populating the public property fronting the beautiful beach . . There were bums galore, enough of them that I thought if only they could get their stuff together, they would make up an impressive Occupy Santa Monica encampment. It might even get them off the beachfront — a win-win for all involved.

This is good blogging. Canny and finely nuanced. This too: John’s commentary on the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia running aground:

The trappings of high-technology civilization make us feel secure, but much of the time we are just a moment away from primal disaster.

Disasters simply haven’t evolved as quickly as we’d like. Here’s what ‘primal’ actually means. Back to the writing:

Ships have been running aground on rocks and reefs for centuries, but what was a predictable hazard five hundred years ago seems shocking in the 21st century, especially when it happens in the thoroughly mapped and domesticated Mediterranean. The image of the Costa Concordia lying on its side is a classic image of the fallibility of modern civilization . .

When a ship’s captain makes exactly the same mistake captains have made for thousands of years, it’s an example of the “fallibility of modern civilization.” I guess if the captain’s daughter had plugged in her iPad too near the sonar unit and the readings had jumped from meters to feet, that would have been Melvillean. If the ship had run aground on Skylab, there’d be nothing for Joseph Conrad to do but whistle and nod. Let’s forget how dangerous it’ll remain to crash things on Ursa X-1, and let’s medulla bleearb on the “fallibility of colony spacelife.” And, Segway:

This Newsweek slur caught John’s eye.

Seeing how it’s his blog, Hinderaker could have said anything. He could have put up a heckuva fight. But no.

Well, sure. We who who [sic] are unhappy that unemployment has increased on Obama’s watch, that over-regulation has stymied economic growth, that our children now owe a $15 trillion debt that we can’t pay–hey, we’re just dumb! We obviously aren’t smart enough to understand how devastating our economy, unemploying millions of Americans and burdening our children with trillions of dollars in debt is really a great idea.

This is John being smart. Take that, Newsweek. It’s almost a cheap trick on the magazine’s part, picking on fools who will surely respond in assrocket manner. And then jerks like me will point out that this post does not, in fact, deflect charges of stupidity. People will see that John has portioned himself some rope and fashioned a pointed hemp cap. And that, too, will have a noose that works its way around his neck.

BLS unemployment statistics:

From which, a chart:

That red dot? That’s when Obama took over, in the midst of an economic collapse. So John is dead boing right: “unemployment has increased on Obama’s watch.” It’s gone from 7.8% to 8.5%. Would it be intelligent to bring up anything else? Anything at all? Naw.

And, also: Obama’s administration is guilty of under-regulation, if anything, growth is slow because of weak demand, the majority of national debt is due to Reagan and W. Bush, neither of which had to deal with a Great Recession, and “unemploying” is not a word. In, also, additionally: if you’re brilliant enough to somehow blame Obama for unjobbenating 0.7% of the work force, you certainly could figure out that’s a million people. Not “millions.”


Faced with accusations of stupidity that may be unfounded

La de da, saw this thing on tulips. Back in the 1600s, the Dutch went crazy for them. Selling bulbs for as much as $100,000. It screwed up the economy, ended in major market crash. Screwed up their values, too — what are we, idiots? How could this have happened? Who buys a flower for $100,000? Wha?

Totally related (see the state of blogging?) — the Obams on Twitter. Dumb. Can’t count. A bag of imbeciles.

Pictures: Obama Campaign Can’t Do Third-Grade Math
Posted by Aurelius | Pundit Press | Dec 24 2011

And these are the people who are trying to “fix” the American economy?

The Obama Campaign has launched a coordinated effort urging people to save money… or something. On their official Wisconsin, California, and Indiana twitter feeds, the President’s campaign is slamming Republicans for their supposed “fuzzy math.” Unfortunately for Obama, he is employing idiots.

$40 times 12 is . . uh . . not a thousand bucks. Stupid jerks. But then there’s this:

Using the hashtag #40dollars, the White House’s official Twitter account launched an online campaign on Tuesday night to help spotlight the real-life effect that not extending the current payroll tax cut would have on working-class families.

For a family earning $50,000 a year, the change would result in roughly $1,000 less to spend over the course of a year—or $40 per paycheck.

These “working-class families”? If Mom and Dad worked, they’d get two paychecks? Where, in what galaxy? Patriots, don’t you buy this hype:

Obama Campaign, Are they Smarter than a 5th Grader, NO … Cannot Do Math on Payroll Tax Cut
Scared Monkeys | Dec 24 2011

From the Pundit Press comes the following perils of wisdom and math from the Obama campaign.

Danger Will Robinson.

First they played politics with the payroll tax cut that funds social security, now it appears that they cannot do simply math. Is the Obama campaign smarter than a 5th grader, Not even close.

Not. even. close.

We are the Scared Monkeys. Good afternoon.


Herman Cain can’t remember Libya, what we did, how we won

It’s getting harder and harder to comment on this stuff. The editorial board at Milwaukee’s Journal Sentinel asks Herman Cain if he agrees with Obama on Libya. Cain has no clue. Can’t figure up from down, isn’t really sure which country that is.

How can any candidate remain unaware of the revolution in Libya? How can he not know that his own armed forces (the United States, Herman) played a crucial role in it? (We won.) And, no, Herman, Libya isn’t Egypt, much as your brain argues with you.

And, no, it’s not the Journal Sentinel’s job to remind you.


Rush Limbaugh puts George W. Bush on Mt. Rushmore

I rarely bother with Rush, he’s predictably vacuous and bizarre. Praising W. for “Ten years, not one attack”? For the eight years in which 9/11 was the historic, heart-breaking highlight? Twisted. Damning Obama because he used the day to serve his fellow man? Typical. Conservatives luxuriate in 9/11 victimhood. But this?

This is a new one. George Bush belongs on Mt. Rushmore. Good luck with that effort, Viagra Poppins. You won’t get 1% of America to back that idea. You will, however, get some right-wing lunatics wanting to shoot your face. They’ll not appreciate having George W. chiseled in next to the real George W., the father of our country.


You say Michele Bachmann is smart? How, exactly?

National Review:

Bachmann Smart, Media Dumb
Stanley Kurtz | June 14, 2011

Seems like only yesterday when Michele Bachmann was supposed to be dumb. Come to think of it, it was yesterday, until about 8:30pm anyway. I found out how silly it was to think of Bachmann that way late last year, when I heard her speak at David Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend. I was sitting at a table full of professor types. We kept turning to each other and saying, “This woman is sharp, not at all the dunce she’s been portrayed as.”

I suppose this is what the National Review has to do. Somebody better do something to justify all that pay. Michele Bachmann is running for President, the bigwigs like her, it’s high time to prop her up.

Her being crazy stupid, or stupid crazy, makes her unelectable. But it’s not Stanley Kurtz’s job to point the fact out, it’s his job to whistle it past the graveyard.

Is this sort of makeover good for politics? Good for the country? They’ll tell you: A skull-hacked, maggot-infested side of goat– if it were a loyal Republican — would be great for the country.

So you get a ‘Michele Bachmann is razor sharp’ post, like this one. Where did all the free floating anti-genius animus come from, incidentally? Bigoted misogynists, AKA liberals:

Liberalism nowadays may be the last great holdout of old-fashioned prejudice. By telling themselves [BLAH BLAH BLAH] flip side of liberal guilt is this hidden license to hate.

You can call me bigoted. I do hate stuff like this:

“Where do we say that a cell became a blade of grass, which became a starfish, which became a cat, which became a donkey, which became a human being? There’s a real lack of evidence from change from actual species to a different type of species. That’s where it’s difficult to prove.”

I happen to be a biologist (no kidding). And the evidence for speciation and its many roles in evolution is substantial. Similarly, the evidence for Bachmann being eminently unqualified to judge Science and evolutionary scientists is overwhelming.

This leads me to an eternal mystery: Why are stupid people so arrogant? For example, who’d be so presumptuous to pronounce upon the spiritual fitness of a person, Melissa Etheridge, whom one has never met? Particularly while Melissa’s life hangs in the balance?

“Unfortunately she is now suffering from breast cancer, so keep her in your prayers. This may be an opportunity for her now to be open to some spiritual things, now that she is suffering with that physical disease. She is a lesbian.”

Bachmann’s gall is atomic-powered. And I believe that’s it. That’s the key to understanding the difference between how the two sides view ‘smarts.’

Our side would be more interested in accumulating facts, appreciating realities and nuance, and integrating all of this into a complicated but prioritized world view. Their side would be more interested in accumulating just enough tidbits of ‘truth’ to wield with spirit in defense of some Sacred American thing. One side sees the world as complex and ever-expanding, daunting but providing stimulation and opportunities. The other sees the world as America. Period. (but look at how it’s being destroyed! [note: it’s always being destroyed])

With this in mind, watch this, if it pleases you. Perhaps each of the two sides could see this clip and say the same thing: “Our side got the better of the exchange.”


Just another drunken Texas congressman

Louie Gohmert. Watch him weave his way from Obama on the ’08 campaign trail, through the number of states in the OIC, past Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood, to stumble upon the shame of “people who wants to destroy our country.”

Is he really that stoopid? Or stone drunk? Absolutely. I am reminded of his comments, two years ago, on The Great Cats And Rare Canids Act. It provided money to countries making efforts to preserve their endangered species. He complained:

We are still borrowing money from the Chinese. And, once again, the irony here is incredible. We are going to borrow more money from the Chinese to possibly give them money back to create habitats for wild dogs and cats that are rare.

There is no assurance that if we did that we wouldn’t end up with moo goo dog pan or moo goo cat pan. There is no way to assure that money will not be wasted when it’s sent to foreign countries.

And throw away perfectly good Moo Goo Bobcat? Never.


The gorgeous stupidty of a petty Donald Trump

Well, he certainly fits in with the Republican hopefuls. What a remarkably uneducated, arrogant fool.

The New York Times’ Gail Collins wrote a piece, “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” where she mocked The Donald for his bizarre descent into Birtherism. “You are not allowed to be a president if you’re not born in this country. Right now, I have real doubts” he says. Like the rest of us, Gail finds this laughable.

In a potential Republican field that includes Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, it’s hard to come up with a line of attack loopy enough to stand out from the pack. But darned if Trump didn’t manage to find one . .

Vote for Donald Trump, the man who can make Bill O’Reilly look like the most sensible guy in the room.

Yes, he’s dumb, okay. But to prove he could descend further, little furious Donald wrote the New York Times to rip Gail Collins personally for poking fun. Donald would like you to know: stupid Gail is a no-talent stupidhead.

I like Gail’s pieces, and she’s clearly bright and accomplished. It says here on the Intertron that she was the first woman to serve as Editorial Page Editor at the NYT. She also teaches journalism at Columbia. Can we say Donald is way out of his league? We can: Donald would be foolish to belittle Gail Collins.

But, more obviously, Trump’s too big for anybody’s league, so you get comedy like this. Oh, how I would have loved to hear the bales of laughter in the Times’ meeting as they discussed whether to print this letter.

Donald Trump Responds
Published: April 8, 2011

To the Editor:

Re “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” by Gail Collins (column, April 2):

Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me.

One sentence, that’s all it took. Unless he jumped in a time machine right about the time he found the comma key, he’s laughably dumber than your local sixth graders. They are familiar with both time and verb tenses. In the past, is Donald smarter than this? No, he was/is not. It gets better.

Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers), is not at a very high level.

His word usage and his storytelling is way higher than Gail’s. Both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes is waiting for him back in Syrupskull, Palookaville.

Well, money and fame isn’t everything. But a blunderbuss that shoots backwards are a good start. If only Don hadn’t satted down at his computer box and writs him a essay. Heavens do bets, he.

Incidentally, Obama sucks —

He has not been able to produce a “birth certificate” but merely a totally unsigned “certificate of live birth”-which is totally different and of very little significance.

He has not been able to produce what, again? This: a birth certificate but merely a totally unsigned certificate of live birth. Yes, we know what Donald was trying to say. No, I didn’t order the word salad, I had the cipher nachos. Oh, and if only the certificate had been partially unsigned. That would very merely a totally, or something.

The term used by Ms. Collins-“birther”-is very derogatory and is meant in a derogatory way. Had this been George Bush or almost any other President or Presidential aspirant, they would never have been allowed to attain office, or would have been thrown out of office very quickly.

Damn that Gail Collins! She, using words that mean vaguely specifically what she meant. She incited a Donaldian brain-rage when her intention and her word split, and then both collided with him. “That was no coincidence,” he thought. “She meant it.”

And “George Bush or almost any other President,” if he had done like Obama, no matter how many Presidents he had become, Don swears “they would never have been allowed to attain office.” A couple other Presidents, though, would have been allowed. Because once there’s, like, a billion of them, totally, what was the Secret Service gonna do?

It’s a surprisingly psychedelic work for a U.S. President. You’re thinking “He really wrote this to the New York Times?” He did.


Local Republicans dumber than Buttons the Clown’s catfish, or even Michele Bachmann

Sshhh! Here she comes. U.S. History Professor Michele Bachmann, come to New Hampshire. Come to lecture her masochist rabid-Republican friends about things they themselves know far better. It’s a bit of fun: she indulges herself she knows even the slightest thing about America. They indulge her indulgence. It must be, well, one of those days.

“What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty,” the potential GOP presidential candidate said. “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord.”

WOW. Perhaps she meant New Hampshire was upwind of Massachusetts that day? And, uh, maybe — well, that would have to be a 900 mile-an-hour wind! Someone may have heard the, err . . oh, never mind.

What I love about Republicans is how inexplicably weird they are. Human cows like Bachmann, the rest of us laugh at. Right-wingers, they throw sashes on them and hoist them onto the bandstand. “What’s wrong with America?” they cry. “MOO,” comes the surprising reply. “The liberals! Pardon the French, Cletus.”

“And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most magnificent nation that has ever arisen in the annals . . “

“MOO.” There it is. ” . . your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most mmmMMMOOOOOOOOO.” C’mon, is there any other side of beef more ignorant of America? Oops, yeah, I suppose so.

Okay — is there anyone more given to lecture good people — far more knowledgeable, graceful and humble than she is — with regards to the truth? OOPS, now I’ve really done it. I think I backed myself into a tight corner. The numbers and types of idiotic, fat-mouth Republicans seem boundless, and I just can’t begin to keep track of them all.

TOPEKA — A legislator said Monday it might be a good idea to control illegal immigration the way the feral hog population has been controlled . .

After one of the committee members talked about a program that uses hunters in helicopters to shoot wild swine, [Virgil] Peck suggested that may be a way to control illegal immigration.

Yeehaw! Virgil dun been voted to pollytick ‘fore Kansas. ‘Noo-Hammsherr, Kansas, ‘Noo-Hammerica, all fulla duzzins uh swiney ruttin’ ‘Messicans.

Asked about his comment, Peck was unapologetic. “I was just speaking like a southeast Kansas person,” he said.

Now, see, that should have been an insult. It wasn’t. And now, in exactly that fuck-you spirit, I give you an actual Kansas person, talking like a person from Kansas. This bit of local color comes to us courtesy the International Dialects of English Archive:

And yet, this guy, the gravedigger, is still smarter than any Virgil Peck, luminary of the Sunflower State. Why? Because he’s giving it to you straight. He’s not trying to be cute, which is the last refuge of folks too big for their tongues.

But don’t Republicans love that stuff? Acting like that? All deadly serious and philosophical one minute, then pretending it was just a jape the next? In their circles, these are scholarly habits. Seeing behind Michael J. Fox’s tremors. Telling their constituents you don’t deserve to live. Huh, what? Oh, alright, fine, we were only kidding.

“I was kidding with her and it kind of got away from me,” he said of the conversation. “It was a girl that wanted money for the crazy people, the people … a good percentage of the homeless people are mentally disturbed.”

And what could possibly be more cuddly than a half-dead Republican coot named Marty Harty? . . from New Hamm’s Diamond-Panel Sheer Control Top New Hampshire?

Not two months on the job and the 91-year-old newbie told a constituent lobbying to protect state mental health services that there are “too many defective people,” in the world. He suggested that the “mentally ill, the retarded, people with physical disabilities and drug addictions” be sent to “a Siberia” where they would “freeze to death and die and clean up the population.”

Don’t you just wanna give him a hug?

Harty made no apologies after he was contacted by reporters, saying nature has a way of “getting rid of stupid people,” and “now we’re saving everyone who gets born.”

A really big BEAR hug? Marty is as cute as a button. Like Eva Braun’s nose. Or Red Button’s dead bunghole. Or Buttons the Clown, who rapes the mouths of catfish for a living, puts it on the internet.

Last month, in a letter to Foster’s Daily Democrat, Harty wrote, “so far I really don’t know what I’m doing. The few votes I’ve made so far I really didn’t know what I was voting for or against. Just looked at the people around me and went along with them.”

Don’t let him go! He’s getting the hang of it!


First: Kathryn Lopez talks sex. Next: Dung beetles on cuisine.

Contraception is Not the Solution
Kathryn Lopez | Feb 25, 2011

Why are Republicans waging war on contraception?

Idiocy? Fear of sexuality? Anger with a few, wanted children? Take your pick.

It’s not the first time the question has been asked, and it won’t be the last. Truth be told, Republicans aren’t engaging in battle on that front — but the phrase gets close to a legitimate fight.

Kathryn Jean Lopez. Ugh. What an intellect.

“Here’s a question — why do we do this stupid stuff? Aw, heck, we DON’T! Nope! NOT US! I was kidding around, throwing you a bone, having a little fun. Incidentally, I call this essay . . ‘IT’S BETTER TO BE STUPID.’

While women may want love and marriage, they don’t expect it. Justice Sandra O’Connor wrote in the Planned Parenthood v. Casey opinion that women had “organized intimate relationships, and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society, in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail.” And why wouldn’t they? Who, nowadays, encourages them to want more?

K-Lo, pictured here . .

. . the Catholic prude, will turn 35 in a couple weeks. And she’s a virgin. Well, we can assume she’s a virgin because she’s so Catholic. Given the way she carries her faith and scolds everybody, she’d BETTER be chaste.

But sexual inexperience doesn’t cause stupidity. Kathryn, people who are sexually active are the most expectant of love and marriage. That’s how human relationships operate: they increase in intensity and intimacy as they progress. Call it “wanting more.”

We’ve come to expect less for and from ourselves, and for and from one another. In part, it’s the fruit of the contraceptive pill. New York magazine recently observed in a cover feature: “The pill is so ingrained in BLAH BLAH BLAH . . .

No. Enough of the rookie bullshit. No coaching from spectators.


Fox News breaks big story: every L.A. policeman to get a jetpack

They report. You point and laugh.

. . but here’s my thing: you gotta make up some rules. Because you could have jetpacks flying into choppers.

There are only 10,000 cops in Los Angeles. So I suppose everybody gets to take their service jetpacks home at night. And a billion dollars? That’s the yearly LAPD budget.

I’m disappointed to say I haven’t yet laughed at this clip because these people are so stupid that it depresses me a little. Has anybody in a helicopter ever made an arrest? Have the Crips figured out how to fly?

How did this happen? Because the powers that be at Fox, the producers and writers, read the Weekly World News.
