A way to deal with the frustration that you feel when dealing with really ignorant people like the guys on the United States House of Representative Committee on Science, Space and Technology is to make fun of them – to laugh at their stupidity. HOW can we in any other way deal with the frustration we feel when we, as in this Daily Show clip, hear their amazingly stupid comments and questions to scientists. That these committee members, mostly men (out of 22 Republicans, one is a woman, and out of 17 Democrats, six), are given so much power is outrageous. But what can we do? As long as Republicans dominate the committee, the ones really in power are the oil companies.
Watch and share this – it gives some relief!
