    becoming so cynical and negative that we create a self-fulfilling prophesy. Especially, those of us who are older and have been savaged by the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune so many time, we already feel the pains of betrayal and defeat any time a politician gets our hopes up -- like anyone over about 28.  

    Yes, lets keep realism in the back of our minds, but when see opportunities like this lets go for the gold.

    Or should I say shoot for the stars? Go for the gusto? We need something hotter or cooler?  

    Let's get frosty, and ice down this global warming crisis!

    Or, better, "let's crank up the air conditioners to the max!"

    PS  This is an inspirational metaphor, If any crusty old, post 28 year old scientific types write in to explain to me that in a closed system air-conditioners are just moving the heat around and creating more heat in the process, I'm going to get really cranky -- "It a inspirational metaphor!"

    Hey, I just though of a good troll prank we can play on our climate denying friends on the right. Let's go over RedState or Glenn Beck's website and open up sockpuppets and advocate solving the global warming problem by having everyone who watches Fox open their refrigerators at the same time for an hour every evening.

    This is late night political strategy gold, here folks!

    The means is the ends in the process of becoming. - Mahatma Gandhi
