Yes, I just blogged on this but it's so precious, it deserves an encore. First, there's the shrieking dumbfuckitude from the backwoods of Saskatchewan:
And there's the metaphorical boot to the nads:
It's not always because they're dishonest. Sometimes, they're just stupid. But it's always one or the other.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh, this is delicious. I just happened to have a browser tab up from over an hour ago viewing that swill of Kate's and, lo and behold, the original version of that post is not quite the same as what's up there now. Here's the original:
And you can see the later version up there. Notice the difference? Why, yes ... yes, you do. The quietly-revised version now has an asterisk next to its lede of "50,000 new Deniers;", with the footnote reading:
*Note: Using the same inclusiveness as the IPCC bureaucrats when citing the number of authors they represent who allegedly support their AGW "consensus".
In other words, Kate now clearly realizes she's full of shit, but she tries to weasel her way out of a correction or retraction for using a dishonest way of counting by suggesting that other people did it first. In short, she knows she's made an ass of herself, but she'll be damned if she's going to admit it.
Atta girl, Kate: Never apologize. Never correct. Never retract. Even when you're caught being a lying douchebag, just suck it up and soldier on. It's the Conservative thing to do.
