The New Republican Congress: How Bad Could Things Get?

"Yabba-dabba-doo! Jesus rode a dinosaur!"

Pretty bad.  The Boner is putting John Shimkus in charge of environmental policy.

Johnny Boy’s ancestors undoubtedly kept themselves busy burning witches and arresting Galileo: The guy isn’t real big on that whole “science” thing:

Shimkus, of Collinsville, Ill., who will begin his eighth term next month, is on less than friendly terms with environmentalists.

He gained notoriety during a November 2009 subcommittee hearing when he said the U.S. needn’t fear global climate change because God is in control.

“The earth will end only when God declares it’s time to be over,” Shimkus said.  “Man will not destroy this earth.”

Well, that’s certainly a relief.  I think. 

If you like air you can see as well as breathe, then Shimkus is your man.

And it’s no wonder Republicans don’t want a START treaty with the Russians.  When God is ready to drop the big one, he’ll do so.  Humans have no say in the matter. 

If God values intelligence, he may decide to drop it sooner rather than later.
