His politics are despicable. But at least he voted against the pack. But please stop with the insinuations as it equates that being gay or even appearing so is something to be ashamed of. Knock it off.

17. Isn't it sort of pathetic that we're cheering on those few Republicans who voted "Yes"?

Do we really need to congratulate them for accepting virtually irrefutable scientific evidence?

As a country, we should be walking around with a paper bag over our head.
We are a laughingstock in the rest of the world. A truly dangerous laughingstock.

25. I could say the same about Murkowski.

We're having one of the warmest winters on record here, only today getting our first significant snowfall of the season. Everyone agrees that the arctic (i.e. Alaska) is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, and yet she's still pushing Keystone, drilling ANWR, etc. etc. She's only thinking of campaign contributions for 2016 when she will surely have a fight on her hands.

45. I don't believe talk radio has a thing to do with it though they likely have the same benefactors

Oil & Gas contributions to Democrats: $5,423,578
Oil & Gas contributions to Republicans: $36,042,218

Democrats: 13%
Republicans: 87%

I know John McCain is smart enough to know the real reason, hell even his running mate Sarah Palin admitted in the Katie Couric interview that is obvious climate change is caused by human related factors living in Alaska where you can easily measure the methane coming from the ground but someone got a hold of her and told her to not say that so by the VP debate she stumbled on the man made question when that was one question where she didn't stumble during the Couric interview. "Drill, baby, drill" McCain though would rather have oil corporations pay for his reelection campaigns until he retires or dies.

on a team. and they know they need republican radio to enable their ability to play the game and take the money. they're greedy shits and they know they need a constituency to point to to enable their irrational anti democratic anti earth suicide plan. that's why they need rw radio- to create their made-to-order flat earther neanderthal constituencies. most recently they're called teabaggers, but they're just the same old talk radio base, the talk radio dittoheads, listening to the same message on the same time frame from 400 different script-reading.blowhards.

47. I agree

Living in Mesa which based on statistics is the most conservative city with a population 250,000+ (which are true as we only have 1 Democrat in city council) I run into so many working to none class who run on and on about global warming and how it is a myth but they don't have to stop & ask myself who does it benefit to believe it is a lie or true. It comes across to them liberals are on some wild ass conspiracy theory but don't realize oil companies (even geopolitics are greatly influenced by oil) have been pushing this, a GOP memo telling them to deny & recruit scientists sympathetic to their POV. I remember one of the times I challenged their ranting he said, "They already talked about this. They came together and figured out it isn't real" I just basically told them to look up peer review research on the matter. Another would rant & rave on how much Al Gore got paid per speeches, how much gas he was using to fly around the world giving speeches. How much his big mansion burns fuel but since I didn't know the facts specifically when it came to Al Gore I didn't respond except to mention it didn't come from him but it is what separates me from the rest out here, I'll only enter a debate unless there is a factual basis to my claims. Oh boy, you wouldn't believe how many of them said "Obama wants to cut social security".

On edit - I forgot to mention the first example was or is (I haven't seen him since 2009) very good friends with a sit-by-the-radio Rush listener.

48. yeah, the gore stuff has been regular talk radio cud since he ran

against bush and because the left was ignoring it (republican radio) and much more was why bush was even in the race.

similar for kerry. they had a problem with obama in that at that time they couldn't get too overtly racist without backlash. now it's easier for them, after 6 years of it, they've made it more 'acceptable'.

the con mind needs certainty more than truth- to ease the fear, and limbaugh has the royal certitude- on everything, even when he contradicts himself a sentence later.

Joe Manchin is the furthest right on the chart. She is also slightly left of Heidi Heitkamp & Joe Donelly. Everyone else Democratic in the US Senate is clearly left of her.

54. Really, is anybody surprised by this?

So-called 'moderate' Republicans have been fully chased out of the party, either by the tea party in red states, or moderate Democrats in the blue ones. This was predictable, except for the handful of GOP deserters who were either very safe in their states, or were in purple states where there was no straddle possible.
