Simply odd

Everyone has heard about Pat Robertson's comment on Haiti, but I think that the strangest comment comes from actor Danny Glover. Yesterday, Mr. Glover uttered the following bit of stupid:

Actor Danny Glover says the earthquake in Haiti is a result of global warming. Glover told GRITtv that it could have happened to any of the Caribbean island nations: "They are all in peril because of global warming."

Then, he lamented the failure of the climate summit in Copenhagen. As a result of that failure, he says, "this is what happened."

Wow. What a nutcase.

In other strangeness, it seems that Scott Ritter, a former U.N. weapons inspector that is somewhat of an iconic fiqure for anti-Bush types has been charged in an online child-sex case. This is the second time and this time he was caught on camera!

I have heard about the Glover comments. Honestly I wonder what these people are smoking. And Scott Ritter was caught doing some nasty stuff on camera. I wonder what Daily Kos thinks?

Too many kooks come out when a disaster strikes. They have only snippets of knowledge on any given issue, but suddenly they are pundits. The really frightening aspect of this is that there are those who actually believe them. Maybe it is easier for some to believe the fiction rather than face the reality.
