You gotta admit that it takes a special kind of stupid to be as consistently awful as Richard Cohen has been over the years. We'd link to the many times we've had to write a "WHAT THE FUCK RICHARD COHEN" post but we don't have that kind of time, so here is our Wonkette Richard Cohen archive in all its WHAT THE FUCK RICHARD COHEN. Today, Cohen is dropping knowledge about the Zimmerman trial. Whom would you think is to blame for the death of an unarmed black boy? Would you guess "black criminals"? Then you are probably right.
Leave Them Kids Alone
The good news is that someone in the GOP did say it. The bad news is they had a bag over their head.
RealClearScience ran this must-read piece, "How the GOP Could Win the Climate Debate," with the following byline: "Eric Bradenson, writing under a pen name to protect his boss and himself, is a conservative staffer on Capitol Hill working for a House Republican. His views are his own."
One might call this a nom de plume of smoke. Or Profiles in Discourage.
The editors noted, "This article was awarded second place in the "Young Conservative Thought Leaders" contest from the Energy & Enterprise Initiative at George Mason University." [The first place winner is here.]
The E&EI folks were a tad blunter, "Bradenson is working for a Republican House Member and opted to remain anonymous for job security reasons." The Tea Party-driven national GOP have become like the Gong Show — and the only people willing to try a standup act are wearing a bag on their head.
Someone in the GOP needs to say it: conservation is conservative; climate change is real; and conservatives need to lead on solutions because we have better answers than the other side.
