Anthropogenic Global Warming. And Jesus. (And HIV)

We might have our fair few right-wing nutjobs over this side of the big pond (Daniel Hannan anyone?) but over the Atlantic, they really know how to do bonkers. Ladies and Gentleman, I bring you the Erie County Party:

"The regulation of Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere should be left to God and not government and I oppose all measures of Cap and Trade as well as the teaching of global warming theory in our schools"

Mind you, that piece of crack-pottery is NOTHING on this gem, which brings to mind a certain episode of Chris Morris' 1990s news satire Brass Eye, and the fictional presenter's comment about 'Bad Aids':

"I oppose the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy of the military and believe that all same sex partners should be banned from combat duty in the military because of the propensity to transmit blood-borne diseases in the theatre of battle".
