There's a reason I like Matthews. Great show today. Hardball's main thesis tonight was the climate denying GOP. David Corn was strong combating the GOP mouthpiece on the program.
David Corn, next time let the anti-science loon dig a nice deep hole then ask it, "where did you go to college?" Pause. If he answers, "Jesus Bible Sham U" that will be enough. Even better, it says, "Ohio State," or "Temple," or any legitimate university. Check Mate.
You say, "what's is their view on climate change?" Have the university phone number at the ready. Offer to call them. Watch the craw-fishing commence.
To all: there is a wedge waiting to be exploited. Science. Drive a wedge between the rotten GOP mouthpieces and pols and their own universities for fucks sake.
Drive a wedge between the gop talking points, Answer, "I'm not a scientist," with "you're not a economist or a gynecologist, either, yet you comment on those issues every day." Nail them again and again.
Talking points: Get some. At every opportunity repeat over and over, "the "ANTI-SCIENCE" Republicans deny climate change, they deny evolution, they deny math (unemployment numbers for example), they deny polls where American are for minimum wage, yada yada fucking yada!
Rinse and repeat, over and over, no matter the topic. Force CNN and anyone else with a brain to disprove our claim, They can not!
The GOP talking head was on his heels. When Matthews asked why Jim Inhofe used Genesis to address climate change, the idiot mumbled "I'm not playing that game..." after calling President Obama "arrogant" three times as he kept trying to change the subject.
Make the GOP play defense FOR A CHANGE. If we don't defeat these loons, we will regret it. Plus, reason and science will be on our side. Win win.
Call them "ignorant" over and over. Play "Hardball!"
