Quote of the Day: shut your pie hole

From Tony Woodlief, last week:
I can’t abide people who are already salivating at the prospect of Obama’s failure, who are convinced that he is a godless Marxist with a secret plan to steal our guns, open our borders, and make us all work like slaves on wind-energy farms while turning our daughters into lesbians with kindergarten sex-education seminars. The reality is that we need him to exercise good judgment and rein in the lunatic fringe of his own party, just as we need Republicans with some backbone to quietly take Rush Limbaugh by the arm and remind him that he is nothing more than a dancing bear, that if he expects any more of them to come kissing his rear end after they hurt his precious feelings then he is sadly mistaken, and that the best thing for everyone would be for him to have another diet shake and shut his piehole.
Whether he "exercise[s] good judgment and rein[s] in the lunatic fringe of his own party" remains to be seen.

Peer-review? It probably isn't

You know how global warming proponents like to say the science is settled because all that research has been peer-reviewed?

Maybe not.
