Saturday Morning Open Thread: Magic Legislation, Montana Alternate Reality Edition

From Patriot Daily News Clearinghouse of DailyKos comes this incredible tidbit of reality disconnect: Montana Legislator Proposes Bill Declaring Global Warming 'Natural' and 'Beneficial'.

Yes, folks, you read that correctly -- by simply passing a bill, the Montana legislature has solved the global warming "problem" and turned all the scientifically supporting studies into just another pile of worthless paper. Abracadabra! It's magic Montana legislation, not anti-science Republicans!

It's not some cataclysmic case of denial that further undermines our nation, it's the GOP coming to rescue us from the dauntingly dismal effects of unrestrained reality!

Huzzah!

...oh, and in other Montana news, "Glacier National Park has lost 83 percent of its glaciers, seasons have shifted, insect outbreaks have devastated forests..."

Good times, good times.

Now we just have to patiently wait for Montana's magic legislators to resolve the national jobs situation, fix the economy and do something about that pesky HCR.

In the meantime, keep doing whatever you're doing -- good or bad, Montana's magic legislators will fix it. And remember, this is an Open Thread.
