I don’t want to do work. So what do I do? I waste time browsing the NYT’s Election Guide. Naturally.

Sure, it has an adverse effect on my blood pressure; reading the Republican candidates’ positions on immigration, abortion, Iraq and health care in one sitting is like getting a Brazilian wax, but instead of a wax, getting it TWEEZED. But there are some real nuggets of idiocy that made me giggle. I really should pay more attention to fringe candidates.

Tom Tancredo (R-Co): SAYS THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS ON GLOBAL WARMING; BLAMES IMMIGRATION

“I have no doubt that global warming exists. I just question the cause and what we can do to ameliorate it. But I wonder why the Sierra Club isn’t going crazy about the environmental aspects of massive immigration into the U.S. The fact is, Americans consume more energy than anyone else, so if a person moves here from another country, they automatically become bigger polluters.”

Their photo. Not mine. Direct quotage, too.

The editors at the NYT have a great sense of humor. We could split a box of wine and spend the afternoon drawing horns/moles/breasts on photos of Pervez Musharraf.
