Mark Shea Quote

I have no intention of voting for Bachmann, who I distrust deeply (as I distrust almost all the embarrassments the Right is anointing). But the difference between her and Gore's demagoguery about Anthropogenic Global Warming Climate Change Global Climate Disruption the weather is that she makes jokes and the press treats her with panicky seriousness while Gore speaks with prophetic certitude and the press treats him with reverence. I fear, far more, the politician the press imagines to be a prophet than the one it (rightly, I think) regards as a buffoon.  - Mark Shea
