Pat Sajak Tweets Twaddle


Nobody would mistake Pat Sajak for an scientist of any sort, let alone an expert on climate change. So why on Twitter is  Mr. Wheel of Fortune  weighing in on such a serious issue?

Here is what Mr. Sajak tweeted yesterday that has raised this question. “I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.”

This is about as  preposterous a statement as anyone can utter.  Not only for its  lack of scientific enlightenment— it’s at odds with the position of the vast majority of the climate scientists— but also for its scurrilously  irresponsible  indictment of  proponents of climate change.

It’s silly to dignify Sajak’s remarks with a thoughtful response.  Or imagine what his motive could be.   The fact is Mr. Sajak , for reasons known only to himself, has chosen to expose himself to the worst of consequences.

When a fool tries to sound wise, he only proves he is a fool.

How unfortunate!

  • Isn't about 98% of what is tweeted twaddle? Especially on twaddle87?

    Theoretically, you should embed the tweet, but I found it. It is followed by one saying:

    Pat Sajak ‏@patsajak May 20
    Sometimes it's fun to poke a stick in a hornets' nest just to hear the buzzing.

    Pat Sajak ‏@patsajak 6h
    Later today I'll be tweeting my views on the subjects of nuclear proliferation and free-range chicken.

    But seems like his main interest is the Black Hawks/Kings game.

    About your two opening questions, I'll just grin and bear them.

  • Ha!! The worst of consequences? Sounds like the party of love and alien excommunicators is ready to lynch another old white guy.

    It appears Mr. Sajak is using a little irrationality to shake up an all too politically charged populous. Kind of like a Buddhist Koan.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    It sounds like you're trying to be an ombudsman in his behalf.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Aquinas, there are some pretty interesting comments by Mark Cuban that are out, I think they have a relationship with this days thread.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    I'll go along with the Koan one.

  • In reply to jack:

    Let me meditate on that.
