Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I’ve always thought that Twitter has two functions: (1) as a quick & easy forum for companies or public figures, and (2) as something akin to a comedy convention: a place to shoot off your funniest one-liner in less than 140 characters. I only go there for the hilarity, and one of the funniest Tweeters is Ricochet’s own Pat Sajak. Unfortunately, some very self-serious internet dwellers are taking one of His recent tweets very seriously.
I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.

Yeah … because the rational response is obviously to take this as an absolutely literal statement of what Pat believes. Now he’s a “trending” topic on my Facebook feed, which shows a list of articles written by hurt, offended, wounded liberals calling names, demanding apologies, etc., etc. We’ve seen this show before.
The saddest part of this debacle and the ensuing liberal rage storm? This article from Mashable listing 16 Hilarious Reactions to Pat Sajak’s Nutty Climate Change Tweet. Seriously – these are hilarious?
Yo I think @PatSajak is a crazy person. I’d also like buy a vowel.

Hey @PatSajak, this aint the Wheel of Fortune. If we lose this game, it isn’t just one person’s misfortune. All humanity pays the price.

If that’s what passes for humor among liberals, I thank God I’m a conservative.
