Everyone’s favorite mustelid (Weasel from sweasel.com) said she was so going to steal a quote and by golly I liked it.  The image wouldn’t leave my mind.

This is nowhere near what I had in mind but I had to work tonight, so this is ten minute’s worth of “I care, sort of”.  Think of it as a placeholder.

If you have a physics background, please note the redshifted photon…

As activists from groups as wide-ranging as the Girl Scouts and the World Council on Churches converge on the climate change conference in Copenhagen, some critics say it’s turning into a “circus” sideshow, with 20,000 attendees creating an international echo chamber of climate piety. – foxnews (because no one else will report anything but fuzzy puppies, rainbows, and unicorns)

The White House is really thin-skinned lately.  Challenging the performance of The One is heretical, I guess.

Asked for a response to Monday’s tracking poll, which placed Obama’s approval numbers among the lowest of any recent president in December of his first year in office, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs mocked the reliability of the widely respected polling firm.

“I tell you, if I was a heart patient and Gallup was my EKG, I’d visit my doctor,” Gibbs said. “If you look back, I think five days ago, there was an 11-point spread, now there’s a 1-point spread. I mean, I’m sure a 6-year-old with a crayon could do something not unlike that. I don’t put a lot of stake in, never have, in the EKG that is the daily Gallup trend.”

He added: “I don’t pay a lot of attention to the meaninglessness of it.”

Love that “… a 6-year-old with a crayon could do something not unlike that…”

Oh, like the hockey stick graph then?  I don’t pay a lot of attention to the meaninglessness of it.

His wording is telling.  Looks like Gibby has been attending his assertiveness workshops.

The Dude was suggesting we use this for the door to the server room at work.  No idea where the graphic came from.
