Montana’s TEA Party legislators have realized that the word “legislator” relates somehow to the word “law”, but so far have not been able to figure out that they don’t have the power to change federal laws and the federal constitution. They have also been unable to determine that they don’t have the ability to change the laws of nature.
The latest TEA Party Republican to garner national attention is Rep. Joe Read (R-Ronan) who has been busy touting his claims that Montana can legislate away science and for his inability to figure out the difference between climate and weather
“As a citizen legislature, we are inclined to believe with the sun on our hands and our face,” he said, “and we’re not seeing the global warming.”
Rep. Read offers up this gem when explaining his bill to that climate change is good here on today’s must-read post.
