Parody or does she believe it? CNN anchor blames asteroid on Global Warming. From the YouTube comments: “How long before they start calling the asteroid racist?” CNN, where The Onion gets its inspriation.

Jeez, I thought Dan Rather was stupid. If you listen, she’s obviously serious about her question. She thinks the asteroid is caused by global warming. How do newsrooms hire people for God’s sake? Do they give applicants IQ tests and hire the people with the lowest scores?

Foe years I thought Bill Joel was singing “Go to hell with your own life, leave me alone.”

Never play “oh what’s the name of that song” again. Thing searches about a gazillion lyric sites and 4 or 5 words is usually enough.

“Talk about something else falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. Is this an effect, perhaps, of global warming or is it just some meteoric occasion?”

Wait, I’m confused Deb. Are asteroids a cause or an effect of global warming? Do asteroids whizzing close to Earth heat up the atmosphere, thus causing global warming (and super storms) or does global warming attract asteroids, causing them to come in from the cold of space looking for as nice cozy planet to collide with?

And the media morons keep marching. Deb is a dumb blonde asking dumb questions to a dwindling audience of dummies.

Ya gotta love the phrase, “just some meteoric occasion.” WTF. I’m guessing she has no idea that “meteor” is a subset of “asteroid” and they don’t have the same meaning.

Well, if it is the warming of just any sphere in space that attracts asteroids then why hasn’t this damn thing made a bee line for our sun? But no, it’s not just ANY warming, it is only the warming caused by humans, and actually, if you pushed this twit into a corner about this she’d tell you it’s only the warming caused by conservative republican humans that is attracting the asteroid

A man walks into a doctor’s office late one afternoon. The doctor is about to check him over, when he asks the patient what the problem is.

“Doc, I really, truly, deep down inside, believe that I am a moth.”

The doctor informs him that he’s a general practitioner, and it would seem that the gentleman needs a psychiatrist. “Why did you choose MY office to come into?”

“Um,….your light was on.”

Nye should’ve replied that NASA plans a space shot of Preparation H to offer relief for the asteroidal burning and itching.

She have stared intently and sincerely into that camera, nodding her head, to affirm that was a good answer.

Basically, if MSNBC trots out an “expert” you can count on the guy being an idiot. Bill Nye is no exception.

There’s no doubt she was serious. She really wonders about that. Just as she stated that every time it gets really cold and snowy in the NorthEast, she wonders if it was caused by global warming.

these diamonds are “twice as hard” as normal diamonds, making them ideal for industrial and scientific use.
