CNN Anchor Bill Weir Angers Fox Nation, Calling Them 'Ignorant F*cksticks'

Bill Weir of CNN doesn’t think much of climate change deniers, and let out a ‘colorful’ tweet earlier today you don’t often see from cable news anchors.

Bill Weir is not impressed with Fox News site’s weather story

CNN anchor Bill Weir didn’t mince words in his assessment of a Fox Nation post.

“Climate Doesn’t Cooperate With Al Gore Group’s Visit to Denver EPA Hearings,” read the headline of a post on Fox News’ opinion and aggregation site. The story, from the Washington Times, noted that while Gore’s group has linked global warming to hot temperatures, Denver was 58 degress and rainy on the day of the hearings.

To which Weir replied on Twitter: “Weather is not climate, you willfully ignorant fucksticks.”

The ancient mummy of Siberian princess reveals her 2,500 year old tattoos


The remains of the immaculately dressed ‘princess’, aged around 25 and preserved for several millennia in the Siberian permafrost, a natural freezer, were discovered in 1993 by Novosibirsk scientist Natalia Polosmak during an archeological expedition.
Buried around her were six horses, saddled and bridled, her spiritual escorts to the next world, and a symbol of her evident status, perhaps more likely a revered folk tale narrator, a healer or a holy woman than an ice princess.
There, too, was a meal of sheep and horse meat and ornaments made from felt, wood, bronze and gold. And a small container of cannabis, say some accounts, along with a stone plate on which were the burned seeds of coriander.
‘Compared to all tattoos found by archeologists around the world, those on the mummies of the Pazyryk people are the most complicated, and the most beautiful,’ said Dr Polosmak.

I was blown away by Alex Clare on Thursday night at the Mezzanine in SF.  Perhaps my favorite part of the show was when he played this song.  Every year while I was growing up, my family would go camping in Big Sur with two other families.  At the end of each night, we would sing this song around the campfire and take turns making up verses.  I had never heard this song outside of that campground, so I couldn’t believe it when Alex Clare started singing,

“Irene, goodnight. Irene, goodnight. Goodnight, Irene. Goodnight, Irene.  I’ll see you in my dreams.”  

Reminder: Women do not need to be polite to someone who is making them uncomfortable.
