Just my response to Stockwell Day's latest bout of nuttiness, in which he argues that Global Warming can't be happening because
...when I got home from Ottawa, there was more snow in my driveway than we usually get in a year.
Obviously they need you around to shovel it, Stock. That's what you do best.
The infamous Flintstones crack about Stockwell Day is probably my favorite one-liner in the history of Canadian politics, with the possible exception of Diefenbaker's oft used "The honorable Member thinks he is being witty; we know he is half right."
And when I finally dug up the actual quote, I was astounded by the author's identity:
In the past day or so, we have learned that Stockwell Day apparently believes that the world is 6,000 years old, Adam and Eve were real people and - my personal favorite - humans walked the earth with dinosaurs. I just want to remind Mr. Day that The Flintstones was not a documentary. And this is the only dinosaur that recently co-existed with humans. [Holds up stuffed Barney dinosaur]"

Good Lord, Warren, you were funny once, and relevant! What happened, man? What happened?
