No I am not making this up! I am starting to feel like I'm trapped in an episode of "The Twilight Zone".
When I read Josh Marshall's report that White House press secretary " Dana Perino responded to charges the White House "eviscerated" CDC Director Gerberding's testimony on global warming with a comment about the cool health benefits of global warming ...", I had to see it to believe it.
See for yourself
Now just to cut Dana a little slack I concede that many of us mispeak when confronted with questions that make us uncomfortable. But not many of us hold the position of White House spokesperson.
"The public health benefits of global warming".
Is Dana aware that the Southern California wildfires are probably worse than normal because of weather conditions that could be attributed to global warming?
Is she aware that in addition to the extreme lost of property, thousands of people are seeking medical assistance for respiratory problems resulting for the smoke filled air?
Of course, if waterboarding and subjecting persons to extreme temperatures is not torture then I guess there can be many health benefits to global warming.
P.S. "Vehicles are very important"
