Oh sweet mercy. Is it possible that this dude has become a United States Senator?
After touring a seawall at Long Beach in Plymouth battered during the hurricane, Brown said, “I’ll leave that up to the scientists, as to where we stand” on the relationship between climate change and violent weather.
“But I believe in climate change,” said Brown, who had expressed uncertainty on the issue during his 2010 campaign. “I believe man and nature play a role. It’s a question of how do we step back and try to address it. I recycle all the time. . . .’’
I think it was the cartoonist David Rees who once wrote, “If I jump up and down in my office chair, does that make me a f@#$ing astronaut?”
We’re dealing with the aftermath of a climate-fueled crisis — one that will inevitably repeat itself on the shores of our state, costing big money, jobs, and lives.
And all our junior Senator can do is make sure he puts his Coors Lite empties in the right bucket.
Did you need further proof that this fine fellow is not exactly up to the job?
