What an annoying time it is to be alive. I keep telling myself to join the millions of others who simply refuse to listen to the news. But no, I had to check out this video this morning in which presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann lectures Congress in great detail on carbon dioxide, insisting that there is no chance that CO2 causes climate change because it’s a natural gas.
Apparently she felt the need to trump her rival, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who led 30,000 people in prayer at a rally in Houston last weekend titled “The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis.”
If either of these people become president, I may have to consider doing what so many others have before me: leave. Costa Rica’s very nice. Never been to New Zealand, but I have a few friends there and I hear it’s terrific; that’s a possibility too.
