“Galileo’s head was on the block…”

This metaphor only makes sense if Rick Perry’s pre-debate psyche up music is “Galileo” by the Indigo Girls…

So last night was the first Republican Presidential Debate where the front runner and coyote-scourge Rick Perry participated. And boy was he a popular target! Brian Williams of the LAMESTREAM MEDIA even had the gall to ask Gov. Perry about his skepticism about global climate change. Perry then gave a very strange answer, rambling for a bit and saying “The idea that we would put America’s economy at jeopardy based on … science that’s not settled yet. … Galileo got outvoted for a spell”. Finally! A Republican candidate who will openly discuss his views on Galileo.

Of course, the idea that Rick “Science is for Pussies” Perry would suggest that he is like Galileo “No YOU’RE a fuckin’ pussy Rick Perry” Galilei is ludicrous: Galileo stood for reason, science and rational thinking where as Rick Perry demanded people pray for rain. So yeah, can David Hasselhoff compare himself to Carrie Nation? It’d be equally valid.

I just can’t wait though until Republican politics become so regressive that not only will politicians reject global climate change, they’ll reject the concept of a Heliocentric universe as well. Earth exceptionalism I say!
