Lifetime Crap Award

I have no idea who Warren Chisum is but I am giving him and this website the coveted Life Is Crap Lifetime Crap Award. Seriously, really?

It's not surprising that the earth doesn't move for Warren Chisum, and maybe
it's not surprising that he blames a Jewish conspiracy for it.

Still, it's enough to set the world a-spinning that the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, the most powerful committee in the House, distributed to legislators a memo pitching crazed wingers who believe the earth stands still -- doesn't spin on its axis or revolve around the Sun -- that Copernicus was part of a Jewish conspiracy to undermine the Old Testament. That would be the same Old Testament that was written by the folks Chisum's friends say are conspiring to undermine it.

Holy Crap!!! This encapsulates one of the HUGE reasons why I consider myself a Democrat. The Republican Party is currently filled with people who are batshit crazy. It's bad enough when they want to ignore Darwin and bring us back into the 1920s. But now Coprnicus. Wouldn't life just be easier if we lived in feudal times. True, the plague would kinda suck. But you can't beat serfdom labor.

While definitely not perfect (and not without it's share of wackos), the level of craziness exhibited by some Republicans is just astounding. How do you even have a conversation with someone with these thoughts, let alone try to get them to represent you? How would you actually try to influence someone like that to represent your views? He doesn't f$cking believe the Earth revolves around the Sun!!!

Christ Almighty. I have very few litmus tests when evaluating politicians. I respect that people have different views and believes than me. But believing the Earth revolves around the Sun is definitely one litmus test for me.
