Al Gore Scareth the Little Children

al-gore.jpgFrom Eugene Robinson’s WaPo chat today:

Silver Spring, Md.: I think Copernicus, Galileo and the modern astronomy community are all wrong about the sun-centered solar system. I don’t have any data, or any particular expertise in the field. All I know is that it bothers me to have people saying we orbit the sun, when I can clearly see it moving across the sky. Plus it is scaring the children to hear people talk about it. Could you tell me how to get an pp-ed piece published at The Post? I hear they have no standards for this anymore. Thank you!

Eugene Robinson: I think there must be a Bush administration science panel that has a spot for you!

Never occurred to me that Emily Yoffe’s Op-Ed might have been an audition. The supreme stupid should, I suppose, have been a tip-off.

And please remember calls for habeas:
