The Stupid, It Burns!

(via Think Progress)

Todd Akin (R-MO) implied that his fellow climate change-denying GOP congressmen are more knowledgeable than Democrats because they have “passed high school science”:

AKIN: This whole thing strikes me if it weren’t so serious as being a comedy you know. I mean, we just went from winter to spring. In Missouri when we go from winter to spring, that’s a good climate change. I don’t want to stop that climate change you know. Who in the world want to put politicians in charge of the weather anyways? What a dumb idea. [...]

Some of the models said that we’re going to have surf at the front steps of the Capitol pretty soon. I was really looking forward to that. [...]

We’ve been joined by another doctor, a medical doctor but also a guy who graduated from high school science as well, from Georgia, my good friend, Congressman Gingrey. … So to have actually a guy who’s passed high school science is tremendously helpful. And Dr. Fleming from Louisiana.
