Eggs Over Easy

EGGS OVER EASY….From the National Journal, this pretty much speaks for itself. It’s not just that Republican members of Congress aren’t convinced that global warming is a man-made problem — gotta keep those campaign donations from Exxon rolling in, after all — it’s that the number who believe this has actually gone down over the past year.

Down! What could possibly have happened over the past nine months to make them less likely to believe in human-induced global warming? Hell, even George Bush now claims to believe that greenhouse gases are at fault. Truly stupefying.
