  •  Bill McKibben knocked it out of the park last nite (1+ / 0-)

    on Real Time w/ Bill Maher.

    His polite, succinct and accurate slap down of Foley & Cain was beautiful.

    •  But the CON's do-nothing argument was insane (0+ / 0-)

      His argument was that we shouldn't worry about what the world will be like in 100 years because we don't know what future engineering advances might save our bacon. So Drilly, Baby, Drill. (I couldn't be bothered to look up his name.)

      In the olden days, CONservatives berated liberals for not taking responsibility for their (usually sexual but also financial) actions. What could be more irresponsible than saying "Let's turn this planet into a smoldering cesspit because somebody someday will be able to clean it up."? Does moral bankruptcy lead to insanity or is it the other way around?
