For some reason, liberals are more adept than conservatives at using mockery and sarcasm as political weapons. That’s why there’s no effective right-wing counterpart to the satirical stuff Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert peddle on TV every night.


Perhaps the most prominent practitioner of this derisive art form these days is the guy in the White House, as we see HERE:


The sarcastic bear is loose, and heís loving every minute of it.


President Barack Obama is letting his inner Don Rickles run free, mocking climate deniers as the crowd who used to think the moon was made out of cheese or spineless dopes who canít or wonít listen to science even though the science is all overwhelmingly pointing in one direction. Their heads are in the sand. They are members of the Flat Earth Society.


For the White House itís about getting the liberal base excited for the midterms. Itís a confidence that climate change has shifted in votersí minds. Itís a broader play against congressional Republicans as obstructionists.


And for Obama, itís a good time. Wednesday night, Obama ripped into his opponents in front of a League of Conservation Voters crowd so friendly that some were pumping their arms in the air as he spoke.
