Poor wittle Michael Mann

You know Michael Mann.  He developed the “hockey stick” climate graph (the one that has been legitimately questioned by a number of skeptics) and who was accused of academic misconduct, but cleared by Penn State (which may have a pattern of clearing people they shouldn’t.)

Now, well he’s butthurt.

Simple Questions

But questions very few Obama supporters want to address:

Why didn’t Obama implement his plan to fix the mess he inherited (ignore for a moment that he spent a lot of time, energy, and money trying to get the job) when the Democrats had control of the House and Senate?

How is his failure to implement his plan anything other than a clear failure of his leadership?

Why do you think he will be any better now?

More questions for Obama supporters here.


Government in action

How much waste can one dig up?  $27 Million on pottery classes?  How about $30K on gaydar.

The National Science Foundation spent $30,000 to fund a study done by the University of Washington and Cornell University’s to measure “gaydar” – the ability of people to identify sexual orientation merely by appearance. The researchers confirmed that “gaydar” exists, writing that participants were about 60% accurate when attempting to identify sexual orientation by appearance.

I don’t even know what to say.
