You’d Think They’d Take Off One Night a Week

Conservatives never miss a chance to show off how stupid they are:

Today is the second annual Earth Hour, a worldwide campaign to raise awareness on the issue of climate change. At 8:30pm local time, major businesses, local and national points of interest, and individual homes will dim their lights for one hour. Already today, sites ranging from the Sydney Opera House to the Egyptian Pyramids have lowered their lights in recognition, and 4,000 cities in 88 countries will participate in the event. Sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour will provide, in the words of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, “a way for the citizens of the world to send a clear message: They want action on climate change.”

It will also provide a new way for conservatives to show what hardcore rebels they are.

Tomorrow is something called Earth Hour. Take the official RedState Pledge:I do solemnly swear that I will honor Earth Hour by turning on every light in my residence at 8:30 p.m. on March 28, 2009, for one hour. God said, “Let there be light.” Who are we to argue?

Yeah, they want you to turn your lights off, but everybody knows darkness leads to crime.

It’s amusing to see Erick Erickson so terrified of possible boogeymen infiltrating his house from 8:30 to 9:30, as well as the wingnut tendency to go after all the most important targets, like symbolic light-dimming actions. But this has now become a cliche. My local wingnut radio hosts were making the same “jokes” last night: “I’ll turn on every light in the house!… I’ll keep my car running for an hour!” And of course, Glenn Beck devoted an entire show to running his car in the parking lot a couple months ago.

    We should declare a liberal “Don’t Jump Off A Bridge” day.

    Liberals never miss a chance to show how gullible they are. It’s so funny to see Kathy terrified of the possible boogeyman known as “climate change” in her house when just last week she was so terrified of the boogeyman “global warming”. Enjoy your prosperity while you have it!

  3. I think Earth Hour is a great idea, and we participated in our house by turning off all the lights and lighting a bunch of candles. But I have a question. Does anyone know how to remove melted wax from carpet?

    Use a candle holder, you fuck.

  5. Larry says:

    Nothing but global silliness.

  6. himom says:

    tas is a bit bitter, I see. And I also see that tas doen’t light candles much or he’d know that the wax can still drip over the holder. Turn off your lights, tas! It’s for the children (which you’re not supposed have either – like a good Liberal).

    I love how trolls swing by here then get pissed off when I yell at them. Oh, he’s bitter. No, you’re just a fucking idiot.
