Congratulations to Texas!

You have one of the stupidest people I have ever seen in rececnt history as one of your Congressmen!

During a Congressional Hearing wih Energy Secretary Steven Chu, Representative Joe Barton asked what is quite possibly one of the dumbest questions I have ever heard.

[many thanks to Talking Points Memo for puting this up.]

In most places in the world, we learn about the formation of oil and natural gasses in middle school science classes. I really wonder why this was asked; was Rep. barton fishing for a chance to say God put it all there? Did he think Mr. Chu was going to give that as an answer? The guy has a Nobel Prize in Physics, for fuck's sake.

Please, Texas, please please please... secede from our country. Just leave. Pick up your toys and get out off here. Yes, we promise to buy shit from you, we'll probably pay to cut through your statet on a toll road even if it IS choked with billboards about Jesus. Just go. We're not going to join you in turning this country into Jesusland so give up and go away.

UPDATE: Not 30 minutes after I posted this...

After some mroe online perusing, I come across this gem. A two year old story, yes, but a gem nonetheless:

Bill Nye Boo'd In Texas For Saying The Moon Reflects The Sun

Hes, kids. Bill Nye. One of the nicecst guys on the planet and a science advocate was booed for pointing out some sciencec that disagreed with the bible.

Here's a quote from another opinion on the same story

Trouble started when the children's entertainer brought up Genesis 1:16, which reads: "God made two great lights -- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars," and pointed out that the lesser light was actually a reflector.

At this point, several people in the audience stormed out, including woman with three small children who shouted, "We believe in God!" and left.

Because, you know, nothing puts your position in a better light than not sticking around to hear the whole presentation and then engaging in dialogue. Loud displays always work better.

Hey, Texas, Please Go. We'll even help you pack!
