“A couple of weeks ago, ‘Bill Nye the Science Guy’, whose claim on being a scientist is as equally tenuous a his claim to being a ‘guy,’ did a video for the National Abortion Rights Action League.

What draws this bustling conservative crowd? It is a rare moment for them to get back at the liberal media and cite those who are the bossiest, most inane, most extreme. And that is why the event is called the “dishonors” awards. And, of course, it is sold out.” – Washington Times

“Yesterday Ben Bernanke, former chairman of the Federal Reserve, published an asinine editorial in the Wall Street Journal describing how the central bank- and the central bank only- saved the economy through artificially suppressing interest rates.
