The irony of that gif is that Penn Jillette believes in man-made global warming. I’ve seen him talk about it and, in his typical fashion, he arrogantly looks down his nose at people who’d believe otherwise. Oh how he’s convinced of his own superiority and cleverness.
Anyway, I literally laughed out loud at the line about Summers saying further taxes would prevent events like Hurricane Sandy. I know that’s what these scum are proposing but to see it in print is so absurd the initial reaction has to be laughter.
