This is your government on drugs

stabenowU.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (she really is a U.S. Senator – I looked her up. Until this quote, she was mostly known for a husband who frequents prostitutes and her own stated desire to bring back the Fairness Doctrine and shut down talk radio) is a nobody from Michigan who is on our country’s Senate Energy Committee.   She happens also to be an expert on global warming.

Detroit, Mich. – Michigan just experienced its coldest July on record; global temperatures haven’t risen in more than a decade; Great Lakes water levels have resumed their 30-year cyclical rise (contrary to a decade of media scare stories that they were drying up due to global warming), and polls show that climate change doesn’t even make a list of Michigan voters’ top-ten concerns.

Yet in an interview with the Detroit News Monday, Senator Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) – recently appointed to the Senate Energy Committee – made clear that fighting the climate crisis is her top priority.

“Climate change is very real,” she confessed as she embraced cap and trade’s massive tax increase on Michigan industry – at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. “Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I’m flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes.”

And there are sea monsters in Lake Michigan. I can feel them when I’m boating.

The debate is over.

    MI is the land of dumb, unionized white folks who can’t engineer or build decent cars (or anything else)…and want handouts from Mercedes-driving CA and NYC/CT taxpayers to subsidize MI laziness and incompetence

    My wife has been feeling this global warming phenomenon alot lately. If we’re in the car, in a plane, or even sitting watching TV, she’ll get these sudden waves of extreme warmth – out of nowhere! Same as this congresswoman!

    She’s always upset about this global warming, as well, and gets pretty pissy about it. She seems irritable and angry that no one is doing anything about it. It’s really changing her…

    I told her I supported ‘Cap and Trade,’ even though I don’t understand it, but that just made her angrier. She threw a book at my head.

    The Duke likes those Jeff Daniels’ commercials about how great the business climate is in Michigan. They make him want to move there, especially if he can get a place in Grosse Pointe real cheap…

    A US Senator being moronic is sadly not big news anymore.

    Incidentally, Jeff is great in “God of Carnage” – go see it!
