Give me a lever long enough...
It's not surprising that the earth doesn't move for Warren Chisum, and maybe it's not surprising that he blames a Jewish conspiracy for it.Oh Jews, is there any conspiracy you aren't involved in, you rascals?
Still, it's enough to set the world a-spinning that the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, the most powerful committee in the House, distributed to legislators a memo pitching crazed wingers who believe the earth stands still--doesn't spin on its axis or revolve around the Sun--that Copernicus was part of a Jewish conspiracy to undermine the Old Testament. That would be the same Old Testament that was written by the folks Chisum's friends say are conspiring to undermine it.
Come to think of it, if I had a lever long enough, I'd probably reach out and try to knock some sense into Warren Chisum with it.
