      George Clooney, in the real life role of “The Tired Mope.”

      Maybe when that bushy-chinney-chin-chined, ex-MTV lunkhead at NPR gets fired for having botched the Oreskes-Herpes Outbreak (also see: Oreskes Sister, Harvard Group-Think Climate Change Zealot)…

      That will open up the face-saving career move for The Mope to get out of the movie business.

      Why, he could even move to the Northern Virginian suburbs.

      I wonder if Mrs. Clothes Horse would like that. What a marvelous NPR Radio interview this would be!

      NPR: “So, Mrs. Human Clothes Horse-Rights Activist—”

      GCW: “You have that backwards! And why was the Oreskes-Herpes Outbreak botched at NPR?!”

      And with that, she hands the interviewer a subpoena.

      And so forth. What Jolly Radio-Active Activists!

      Naomi Oreskes, see Wikipedia profile.

      One wonders if N.O. vigorously protested that the Guardian (UK) book reviewer —

      Who completely agreed with Oreskes about the existence of “climate change” (whatever that means) prior to reviewing Oreskes’s book on, my God, what a coincidence, climate change —

      Should not have been the person to be reviewing her book.

      Something along the lines of the need to fake impartiality, or something.
