All together now: Go sit in the corner...

Pete's not here right now, but I think he'd appreciate the following:

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Northwest Edition

Daylight exacerbates warning[sic]

You may have noticed that March of this year was particularly hot. As a matter of fact, I understand that it was the hottest March since the beginning of the last century. All of the trees were fully leafed out and legions of bugs and snakes were crawling around during a time in Arkansas when, on a normal year, we might see a snowflake or two.

This should come as no surprise to any reasonable person. As you know, Daylight Saving Time started almost a month early this year. You would think that members of Congress would have considered the warming effect that an extra hour of daylight would have on our climate. Or did they ?

Perhaps this is another plot by a liberal Congress to make us believe that global warming is a real threat. Perhaps next time there should be serious studies performed before Congress passes laws with such far-reaching effects.

Where do I begin, oh Connie M. Miskimen? Is it with the typo in the title? Or that the bill changing when Daylight Savings Time would start was passed by the previous Congress, which was controlled by Republicans? Or, perhaps, that you have somehow imbued our Congress with the ability to actually change the rate at which the Earth rotates, thus adding an extra hour to the day? I mean, really, why didn't Congress give us that extra hour in the fall, so that it doesn't get so cold?

And some people think I'm too harsh when I use the term "Retard America."

It's not about being too harsh - I'd like to come up with a better term, just because after working with a bunch of people who would traditionally be called "retards", they deserve better. Morons like this person, however, deserve everything that we can dish out.
