The Vagina Dialogues: Eve Ensler, Joy Behar Agree that "Earthquakes and Tsunamis" Pretty Much Proof that Global Warming Is Real

They can't understand why anyone would reject "science" such as this.

ENSLER: Well, I just think the idea that she doesn't believe in global warming is bizarre.

BEHAR: Every scientist at every note believes in it but Sarah Palin doesn't believe in it.

ENSLER: And I think we just kind of have to walk around the world at this point and look at what is happening to nature and earthquakes and tsunamis.

BEHAR: Right.

ENSLER: And weather changes to just feel it. But I think that idea that she doesn't believe in global warming and she could actually run for vice president, and we have a country where that is possible, it seems insane.

BEHAR: It's unbelievable. It does seem insane and the fact that she has not negated the possibility of running in 2012.

ENSLER: But we have. We have negated the possibility of her winning.

A point I've made to death is that part of the appeal of liberalism for the intellectually insecure is the belief that simply buying into liberalism makes one smarter. Here, we have a couple of yentas who are scientifically illiterate talking about how scientific they are.

(In case you'd forgotten, tsunamis are not a weather-related phenomenon, but are tidal waves caused by underwater earthquakes and such.)

But they're just getting started. The self-congratulatory Orgy of Stupid continues:

ENSLER: But I think part of it is like why are we giving [Sarah Palin] so much attention. You know I was looking at that Tea Party thing last night. How many people were there? 600? Why is the entire media covering an event with 600 people.

BEHAR: I don't know.

ENSLER: V-day has 5,000 events this year. At one event there's 600 people, why are they covering that? What do we choose to cover in the media? Why is anyone giving attention to people who have really have a level of intelligence that hasn't really evolved yet?

BEHAR: I agree with you.

ENSLER: You know, you know, it's problematic. It's problematic.

Sarah Palin's intelligence hasn't "evolved" yet to the point where she comprehends that earthquakes and tsunamis are caused by global warming.

And Behar and Ensler mock her for that. The marriage of perfect ignorance and and arrogance is impressive.

And they're still not done yet:

ENSLER: Well I'm not talk you can about the people who necessarily are following Sarah Palin. Because I think people have the right to be afraid right now. I identify with working people. I feel for people are out of jobs and they don't have money. What` I'm talking about is people who are creating Sarah Palin and Sarah Palin herself putting out information that is manipulated, that's distorted, and illusory. That's the people I have problems with.

BEHAR: Well she plays fast and loose with facts.

ENSLER: Oh, does she ever.

Palin plays "fast and loose with the facts," unlike Ensler and Behar, who are quite certain that rising temperatures may cause tectonic plates to "sweat," and thereby become more "lubricated," and thereby slip past each other and cause earthquakes and tsunamis.

This is not science; this is magic, and a particularly primitive and dunderheaded system of magic at that.

But oh how they congratulate themselves on being up with he "facts" about the New Alchemy.
