If you thought the far end of the global warming crowd was nutty, try Arizona State Senator Sylvia Allen, who, in accordance with her faith, attests that the earth is only 6,000 years old. Twice. On the record. By way of arguing her stance on uranium mining in the state.

The half-life of uranium-238 is 4.47 billion years.

Then, in the midst of discussing a study correlating long marriages with a reduced tendency towards Alzheimer's disease, FOX News' Brian Kilmeade launched into a bizarre ramble wherein he suggested the study did not apply to Americans because we keep marrying people of other ethnicities.

Thus diluting the sheer awesome wonderfulness of the white man's brain or something.

As evidenced by Sylvia Allen and Brian Kilmeade, no less.

I'd like to say it's just Sen. Harry Reid's problem that he's a spineless jellyfish who wouldn't know what to do with a 60-vote majority in the Senate if it came with instructions ...

You're the Senate Majority Leader, Harry. Try leading instead of conceding.
