New York Times columnist Bret Stephens has already published a follow-up to his inaugural column for the paper, which managed to trigger climate change absolutists and send them scrambling to cancel their subscriptions before their progressive neighbors stopped by and discovered a copy of the now-forbidden heretical text in their possession.

Seriously, is this witch hunt going to go on as long as the election postmortem?

Former Obama speechwriter Ben Rhodes is still scratching his head wondering why his boss invited clowns like Bill Nye to science functions at the White House. No, wait: he’s wondering why the Times doesn’t just give the Flat Earth Society its own column.

It’s hardy worth repeating at this point since people like Rhodes tuned out a while ago, but nowhere in his column did Stephens deny man-made climate change or its possible catastrophic effects, so the charge of “climate denial” is as baseless as it sounds.

Nope. Please, don’t try to understand what Stephens actually wrote; just keep up the pedantry until 2020, OK?

He knows a guy who took a selfie with Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson and who encouraged a young inventor named Clock Boy to inspire others to pursue science and frivolous lawsuits.
