Monday Night News and Notes

Here's what's new in the world:

-Not only "hiding the decline": hiding the data.

-Courtney Love loses legal control of her 17-year old daughter. It seems about 17-years too late as she's probably really screwed up after being raised by that friggin' skank.

-If I still lived in California, I'd be embarrassed that I was represented by Babs Boxer. That said; I live in New Jersey and am represented by idiots Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez so I guess I can't talk too much.


-I know proving Al Gore wrong is fish in a barrel easy but the UK press seems to enjoy it immensely:

In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during the summer months, could be completely ice-free within five to seven years.”

However, the climatologist whose work Mr Gore was relying upon dropped the former Vice-President in the water with an icy blast.

“It’s unclear to me how this figure was arrived at,” Dr Maslowski said. “I would never try to estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this.”

Mr Gore’s office later admitted that the 75 per cent figure was one used by Dr Maslowksi as a “ballpark figure” several years ago in a conversation with Mr Gore.

Awesome. The Goracle is getting grilled for his scamming and now is pretty much looking like an f-ing moron on a daily basis versus the usual weekly basis.
