Today in "Look what the climate denier dragged in"

The Teabaggin' Surgeon, babbling about God only knows what.

Benishek said the latest plan, along with others aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, rely on global warming models that are “not a proven science.”

“It’s very disconcerting to have an energy policy based on science that is controversial,” Benishek said.

I've read those two paragraphs probably half a dozen times and I still can't figure out whether it's the climate models that are unproven science or climate change in general. In the first case, he's right, since a model isn't proven unless what it predicts pans out which means that it's just silly not to pretend that models don't have something to them. If it's the second, he's just an idiot.

What's with all these wingnut doctors?
There's Ben Carson, who compared Obamacare to slavery and now says it's worse than 9/11; Paul Broun, who called evolution the work of the devil; Greg Brannon, who had ties to white supremacist groups and got caught plagiarizing from of all people Rand Paul; and, of course, the good Dr. Behishek.

Someone should tell remind these people about the Peter Principle: you can be a competent doctor but reach your level of incompetence as a historian, political pundit, or climate scientist.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.
