As I'm sure you're aware, the world is still reeling from the total intellectual ass-kicking that Rep. Joe Barton gave that pencil-neck geek Energy Secretary Stephen Chu the other day when he asked him to explain how all that Texas-style oil got underneath the Alaska-style ground.
Obviously, Chu retreated into a whole bunch of sciencey kind of bullshit which was obvious bullshit science stuff — totally embarrassing himself — and Rep. Barton walked away as the smartest man in the 6,000 year history of the Earth.
Anyway, Get Your War On's old author David Rees doesn't think Barton should have been so merciful as to stop there, and suggests a number of other questions that Chu needed to be asked…
"Why can't I see the wind? Is it made of ghosts?"
"How did all that water get in the ocean?"
"How come sometimes when I look at a cloud, it reminds me of a shape, like a horse or an airplane or something?"
"How come things are all different colors?"
"If solar power is so great, why isn't there a Psalm in the Bible that says, 'Solar power is so great / that is my honest opinion, sayeth the Lord'?"
"If global warming is so real, how come I had never heard of it until people started talking about it?"
"How did this thumb on the end of my arm get stuck up my ass?"
Luckily for Chu, Barton doesn't like to flaunt his brainial superiority.
