First of all, my thanks to the First Draftees who contributed to Ms. DeWitt’s Journalism class at Donorschoose – the hat I don’t wear is off to you!
Now – let’s get suited up and dip into the alleged minds of thehorrendus res publica, shall we?
Don’t forget – their inflammatory rhetoric is classified as propane language.
First tawdry tidbit in our hall of shame –Sarah cites Global Warming. Freepers light farts in protest!

Climate change: Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin acknowledges global warming
is affecting her state But the former GOP vice presidential candidate
contends gas drilling will help curb rising temperatures
By Kim Murphy | Tribune Newspapers April 15, 2009
— Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin acknowledged Tuesday that global warming is
harming her state but said stepped-up natural-gas production could
mitigate its effects.
Palin spoke at a hearing before Interior
Secretary Ken Salazar — the third of a series he is holding across the
country to consider renewed oil and gas leasing on the Outer
The 2008 Republican nominee for vice
president said relatively clean-burning natural gas can supplant
dirtier fuels and slow the discharge of greenhouse gases into the
“We Alaskans are living with the changes that you
are observing in Washington,” she said. “The dramatic decreases in the
extent of summer sea ice, increased coastal erosion, melting of
permafrost, decrease in alpine glaciers and overall ecosystem changes
are very real to us.”
For the Freepers, this must be like waking up the morning after their wedding night and finding the object of their affection standing over them with a knife and a determined look.

need to develop more natural gas which has a low carbon footprint.

recognizing Global Warming, but not necessarily subscribing a human
cause for it.
I’m a big Palin fan, but it pains me to point out that she’s talking
about “greenhouse gases” and “carbon footprints” and “green energy”.
She seems to have swallowed to kool-aid.
…but the majority of the responses are like this:
…rhymes with – “June”? Nope. “Spoon”? Nah. “Tune”? Uh-uh.
I’ve got it!!!
Well, what a wonderful way to start the day!
Lots more after the jump, soooooooo…
