Pat Robertson, just like Jesus, is not a big fan of science or reason. Lets face it, once you start taking science seriously, its just a mater of time before you start basing your opinions on facts and accurate information instead of superstition and projected self-hate. And then, before you know it, you don’t sound like a crazy person anymore, and we can’t have that.
Today Pat explains that jesus does not believe in global warming, and his proof is that Mars (yes MARS) doesn’t have SUV’s or oil wells and it is hot too. I know, go figure. Luckily that kind of mental derangement is destructive, but luckily it is also fun to watch too. Where would be without our favorite Christian maniac? I hope Pat lives forever!
A Trillion Dollars. Hey, turns out the total amount of outstanding student debt could reach a Trillion dollars this year.
Man, for that amount of money, America’s students could have waged a pointless ten-year-long war , you know, something useful, instead of all this egg-head book-learning and such.
But luckily Rep. Virginia Foxx, the chairperson of the subcommittee on Higher Education, doesn’t think student debt is a problem, in fact she has disdain for college student who find themselves in debt. So much so that her proposal to help College students drowning under a mountain of student loan debt is to do NOTHING. That a girl!
Mitt Romney steps up to offer his own advice for college students who can’t seem to afford $50,000 a year: “Shop Around, get a good price!” I’m not making this up, that is his plan to tackle the skyrocketing costs of colleg tuition—”Shop Around, Get a Good Price!”. Yeah I hear you can get into UCLA on a Groupon special now.
We take a closer look at Mitt Romney and his penchant for projecting his worst qualities onto his political opponents. It is fun to listen to Mitt pretend to be outraged over Barack Obama’s flip-flopping. As my friend Kevin Seccia says “Lying is always funny”, which is why Mitt may be the funniest politician in America.
Hilary Rosen made some good points about Ann Romeny not being in touch with working women and the challenges Moms who work outside the home face. Of course it was intentionally misinterpreted by Mitt Romney in order to make some cheap political points. Luckily we have a free press that immediately debunked this phony outrage and kept voters attention on the real issues of this campaign.
Okay, so that didn’t happen. The press just kept repeating the phony outrage instead of debunking it, allowing cynical pricks to control the political conversation in America for almost two weeks. And that is how you end up with a country that is firing teachers by the thousands while still spending billions on wars nobody wants and bonus-ing criminal bankers.
Plus Phone calls!!! from Rick Perry welcoming me to Austin texas for the Moontower Comedy Festival April 25-28, and Mitt Romney calls into twice to be an affable asshole.
