Oh those wacky College Repugs at Oklahoma U! Not content with wrecking the country with their unwinnable war, they want to wreck the planet too. Instead of reflecting in sober fashion on the fact of global warming, they're celebrating "Global Cooling Day" and hosting "Global Warming Beach Parties."
OK, we know that in OK most folks aren't the sharpest knives in their respective drawers (they routinely send the dumbest congressional delegation in the nation). And what can you say about a CR chapter that promotes Straight Pride Week? But this is monumentally dumb:
Freeze out environmentalist scare tactics with a little humor. The Oklahoma University College Republicans gave out free snow cones to students for an event they called "Global Cooling Day." Stage an event like this one to grab the attention of your campus and raise awareness on the falsities of the global warming phenomenon. Engage with students and debunk some of the myths and cool the hyperbole surrounding the issue.
Kind of makes you wonder ... if they're expending all this energy tilting at windmills, are they going to sign up for the biggest windmill tilt of all - the Dear Leader's Iraq War? Michael Patlan is the chair of the OU CRs, maybe he knows. (UPDATE: try this email).
