John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, just keeps digging himself into a deeper hole. As you can see in The Ed Show segment above, he recently accused President Obama of being a "socialist" or a "fascist," or an evil French gay Kenyan Marxist commie (I made up that last part).

Now he's proving himself to be even more ignorant than we thought, if that's even possible. He actually told Mother Jones that "climate change is perfectly natural and not necessarily bad." Seriously.

I guess he didn't read this: Yet another report confirms man-made climate change, and it’s not pretty:

[T]he cost of unchecked global warming could pass the combined cost of both world wars and the Depression. To understand how such a thing might happen, consider the costs of this year’s drought and Superstorm Sandy: $100 billion price tags start to add up (and of course the biggest price was born by poor consumers around the world, many of whom saw the price of their daily bread rise painfully out of reach).

Or this, via Think Progress:

The National Climate Assessment lays out how “Climate change is already affecting the American people.” It states, “Certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense including heat waves, heavy downpours and in some regions floods and drought. Sea level is rising, oceans are becoming more acidic, and glaciers and Arctic sea ice are melting.” ... One report estimates as many as 100 million people could die from climate change consequences by 2030.

Via The Guardian, presenting the Dim Bulb o' the Day:

Mother Jones: You are known to be a bit of a climate-change skeptic. In your book you write that "some scientists estimate that the United States now absorbs as much carbon emissions as it emits." Your source is a paper by the American Enterprise Institute, which has received funding from the Koch brothers and ExxonMobil. Do you really consider AEI a credible source?

John Mackey: Contrary to what has been written about me I am not a "climate-change skeptic."... [C]limate change is perfectly natural and not necessarily bad. In general, most of humanity tends to flourish more when global temperatures are in a warming trend and I believe we will be able to successfully adapt to gradually rising temperatures. What I am opposed to is trying to stop virtually all economic progress because of the fear of climate change. I would hate to see billions of people condemned to remain in poverty because of climate-change fears.

Yeah, death and destruction are much more preferable.

VIDEO: Sarah Palin calls Herman Cain "Herb"... repeatedly

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Gretchen Van Susteren has once again lost her senses and decided to interview Sasha Palin. See what I did there?

Yesterday Rick Perry did his best Palin impression, so apparently Palin was concerned about being out-dumbed and felt obligated to try to regain her Idiot Crown.

Previously, Donald Trump called Rick Perry "Jim", and apparently Palin thought that was so cool and rogue-y and mavericky that she had to follow suit with blurting out "Herb" a few times.

Which, of course, leads to the inevitable:

FYI (H/t: Keith Olbermann for reminding me about this Herb Caen):

Herbert Eugene Caen (April 3, 1916 – February 1, 1997) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist working in San Francisco.

Note from Paddy-

I do believe Ms Palin and Ms Bachmann were the test subjects for Rev Huckabee's "Dave Barton's History of Yesterday" videos. They done learned well.

I wish the video was embeddable, but it isn't, so please go here to see for yourself what a douchenozzle Larry Kudlow is. I did, however, take a screen grab:

Video added, thanks to reader Wisco!

On CNBC, via Vanity Fair:

“The human toll here looks to be much worse than the economic toll and we can be grateful for that.”

Thank GOD people are dying in greater numbers than that of corporations losing money.  I mean, yeah, there's death and stuff, but the markets are still going strong. Hallelujah!

Moral of the story: Think before you open your big fat idiot mouth.

UPDATE: He apologized.

Sarah Palin Quote- "Domestic Drilling: Why We Can Still Believe"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

By GottaLaff

Polluta McOil$lick has finally admitted she prays to the Oil Gods. She's a believer:

Her ghost writer's Facebook post includes the following:

...Todd, an Alaska Native and trained oil spill responder...

I'm not sure why that sentence struck me as odd, but it did.

Now for the nauseating parts:


We still believe in responsible development, which includes drilling to extract energy sources, because we know that there is an inherent link between energy and security, energy and prosperity, and energy and freedom.

I wonder how secure, energetic, and prosperous Louisiana, Mississippi, and other Gulf states feel now that they have decades of clean-up and regrowth after all that oily, deadly destruction.

We need oil, and if we don’t drill for it here, we have to purchase it from countries that not only do not like America and can use energy purchases as a weapon against us, but also do not have the oversight that America has.

We need clean energy, not finite, dwindling, minimal, insufficient amounts of filthy fossil fuels. And Polluta, you might want to rethink that part about "oversight". Had there been proper oversight, this catastrophe might have been avoided.


Actions will be taken to increase oversight to prevent future accidents.

Too late.


Government can and must play an appropriate role here.

Would that be the same Commie Marxist fascist government you think is too big and too intrusive? So you need them now, do you, Polluta?

It is inexcusable for any oil company to not invest in preventative measures. They must be held accountable or the public will forever distrust the industry.

Too late.


I repeat the slogan “drill here, drill now” not out of naiveté or disregard for the tragic consequences of oil spills [...] I continue to believe in it because increased domestic oil production will make us a more secure, prosperous, and peaceful nation.

It's hard to imagine the affected states feeling very secure, prosperous, or at peace right about now. But now we're just repeating ourselves, aren't we Polluta?

May spill responders be safe.

...and obsolete in the near future, when we start depending on wind and solar energy, not polluting, dirty, wasteful, expensive, intrusive energy sources.

Sorry, Polluta, but I'm not a believer.

Boss Limpdong has officially lost it.

When Keith Olbermann returns, I fully expect him to edit the relevant segment out and use it as his new little corner clip:
