” The Republicans have some fun at the president’s expense. “

  “Here was our favorite line from
Mitt Romney’s convention speech : “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.”

  We liked it even better when we saw that the New York Times’s Nicholas Kristof had tweeted:
“Seriously, Romney’s speech esp troubled me by mocking rising seas/climate change. The dismissiveness was appalling.” Gaia is a jealous
Goddess, and She will not be mocked!

  It actually hadn’t occurred to us that the Romney line was a repudiation of global warmism. If so, that’s lagniappe. What we
enjoyed was the deft way in which Romney punctured Obama’s self-aggrandizement–by quoting his most immodest promise ever,
pausing for effect, then making an almost comically modest promise of his own.”
