We know there are some of you on the other side of these interwebs who will read this and agree with GOP Senate candidate Kevin Coughlin when he says the science is sketchy on global warming. It's certainly not coming out of left field for someone on the right of the aisle. But it's news, and it somehow is startling to hear someone say it no matter how many times it's been uttered. His closing one-liner was particularly politician-y.
PALMER: You mean you don't think we can pass legislation to lower our temperature?
COUGHLIN: I would ask the people in Pompeii who are frozen like this if an act of Congress could change their situation. No.
Um, OK. Anyway, full video from his talk in Strongsville below.
