Congress Laughed at the President

It's not a good thing when the members of Congress laugh at you, right? The line from the State of the Union speech that got the biggest laugh was about "the overwelming evidence of climate change."

Stick a fork in global warming, it's finished.

Mr. Xyz...that particular "Hitler" movie clip has been used for several paradies of current issues. It's clever, but I think they are wearing it out.

"Hitler responds to the iPad"

Also note the look of the thumbnail for the glaciergate vid that you can see on ClimateRealists:

Apparently, I wasn't the only one who heard the woman who called in to Rush's show the other day. She said they should all just laugh when Obama said something ridiculous, and laugh they did. Personally, I loved it ...

Mr. Xyz...Thank you for the feedback on Huffpo and the "Hitler" paroday. Apparently there is still plenty of life in it.

Guy, It's probably just as well that they didn't laugh whenever Obama said something ridiculous; We would have been treated to nearly 70 min of laughter.
