Rick Santorum, showing an absolutely amazing understanding of biology.

“The dangers of carbon dioxide? Tell that to a plant, how dangerous carbon dioxide is,” he said.

I’m in awe. Ever had a moment where someone says something so incredibly stupid that it’s hard to even know how to correct it? This is one of those times.

I mean, he’s right. Plants are cool with carbon dioxide in the same way that people are cool with oxygen. Ignoring what happens when the gas balance goes way off in either direction (spend a day breathing pure oxygen and see how that goes), I guess what he’s saying is that it’s okay if all the people on Earth die for the benefit of plants? Maybe Rick Santorum is the most pro-environment candidate of all!

  1. The GOP is really starting to make my head hurt and actually FEAR for the people I know in the US/us who have to live next to these crazy mofos.  After reading about a state Rep who compares women to cows, pigs and chickens… I just… Can Canada break away physically from the US now?
