Via TPM’s John Marshall:
Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) is running to be the head of the Energy and Commerce Committee, which has a key role in climate policy. And he created a stir a couple weeks ago after he reiterated his belief that global warming is not a problem because God has promised he wouldn’t destroy the Earth again after Noah’s flood. Charles Jaco, of…KTVI in St. Louis, just interviewed Shimkus on God’s promise and the hidden upsides of global warming.
Thanks, voters, for bringing us another age of big-R fucktards last month, who will hold Congress and all progress for America at a standstill for the next two years.
This dimwit makes me embarrassed to be from Illinois.
