Joe Barton is one of the brightest stars in the firmament of elected officials seeking to right the wrongs of the BCS. His supporters in the fight for a playoff are legion.
And it’s not hard to see why, when you observe the intellectual power of the man. Take, for example, his brilliant exposé of wind power (Barton is as equally passionate about opposing global warning fears as he is the BCS):
Wind is God’s way of balancing heat. Wind is the way you shift heat from areas where it’s hotter to areas where it’s cooler. That’s what wind is. Wouldn’t it be ironic if in the interest of global warming we mandated massive switches to energy, which is a finite resource, which slows the winds down, which causes the temperature to go up? Now, I’m not saying that’s going to happen, Mr. Chairman, but that is definitely something on the massive scale. I mean, it does make some sense. You stop something, you can’t transfer that heat, and the heat goes up. It’s just something to think about.
My head hurts.
The line to the cliff forms on the left, lemmings.
