But of course -- who doesn't mind the thought of their drinking and bathing water being reclassified as a flammable liquid?
Don't Worry, Water Is Supposed To Catch Fire, Republican Says

"If you go back in history and look at how the Indians traveled, they traveled to the 'burning waters,' and that was methane in the water, and that was for warmth in the wintertime," Colorado state senator Randy Baumgardner (R) told a conservative activist in a video posted Monday. "So a lot of people, if they'll just trace back the history, they'll know how this is all -- how a lot of it's propaganda."
Baumgardner, being interviewed for activist Gordon Klingenschmitt's daily television show "Pray in Jesus Name," was responding to what he perceives as ignorance from people who criticize natural gas development.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/14/fracking-water-colorado-republican_n_5678411.html
Honestly now --- where does the GOP keep finding these whack job losers for their party representatives??
No --- seriously --- what kind of mentally challenged asshat would publicly profess the belief that Americans shouldn't worry if the water in their homes, with which they and their families drink and bathe in, is flammable because some old native American legend said it was alright?
And since the media is always playing the gutless game of "both sides do it," please, someone, anyone -- tell The Gadfly who on the Democratic side of the political fence makes such imbecilic claims in public?
The Gadfly wouldn't pay much attention if bullshit like this was just an infrequently occurring anomaly, but that is not the case -- these right wing buffoons are spewing crazy shit like this into the public discourse on a daily basis, and nobody is calling them out on their asininity. For the sake of this nation's future, those who give a shit about that future need to unite and confront these morons and marginalize them and their dangerously stupid views. They've gotten away with this flim-flammery for way too long. At the very least, institute measures to prevent them from breeding en masse.
