I am with Kos (partially to mostly to maybe not at all) right up until the end (which I have bolded):
What kind of “intelligent design” would litter the ice with dead penguin babies? I know conservatives cheerlead death in Iraq and turn a blind eye to it in the gulf coast all the while yammering on and on about the “culture of life”, but this is about the most absurd thing I’ve read in a while.
Maybe these conservatives will join liberals in arguing for better pre- and post-natal care and universal health care to lower the infant penguin mortality rates? And since those nuts are now concerned about the Penguin Culture of Life, maybe they’ll put pressure on their patrons in the White House to do something about that global warming that may be killing of those precious penguiins. Here and here.
And after they help us pass the Kyoto Protocols, we can all ponder what kind of sadistic god would purposefully dump these poor, innocent penguins in cold-ass Antartica and make their lives such living hells.
It is my opinion that the potential impact of Kyoto has been overstated (notwithstanding the ‘us’ portion of ‘help us pass the Kyoto Protocols’- it was my understanding the only vote Kyoto ever saw left it without one vote in the Senate).
Am I wrong?
