Republican Party Mary Matalin's Global Warming Conspiracy Theory

Republican Party Mary Matalin's Global Warming Conspiracy Theory
on

Just when you think, maybe, just maybe the Republican Party is beginning to pop its head out of the sand and recognize what scientists all over the world are saying about the realities of global warming, you get Republican “strategist” and former President Bush Assistant, Mary Matalin, saying this on CNN:

… global warming is a largely unscientific hoax. And it’s a political concoction.”

Matalin, of course, is talking about that massive conspiracy secretly organized and executed by the most prestigious scientific organizations (i.e. the Royal Academy, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the US Academy of Science, NASA etc.), disseminated through government institutions like the United Nations and then echoed through the pages of most of the free-world’s communist underground network of journalists bent on world domination.

If Matalin and other GOP “strategists” keep favoring worldwide conspiracy theories over rational scientific research, they’re going to “strategize” themselves right into irrelevancy, even within their own party.

That is, unless Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) can somehow cajole a staffing budget increase.

H/T to Media Matters for America for their ever-vigilant hard work.
