A San Francisco Chronicle writer has a nice line of invective. This article discusses the fact that 13% of Americans hav no clue what global warming is. In it, he writes the paragraph:
Nor am I speaking of your average Bush-lovin’ bobbleheads who appear to get their worldly information by way of licking the stuff found on the bottom of the rocks in front of Fox News HQ and then tripping for three days while watching “The O’Reilly Factor” from the bathtub. Everyone knows about them. And no one really takes them seriously anymore.
Now that’s invective I can admire. As to the stupidity of 40 million Americans, all I can say is “Feel proud folks. You’re the way of the future in the new consumer society.”
