Not only that, it really pisses me off how the Republicans -- all of 
them -- accept the Democrat premises.  Two examples:  one, health care. 
  The Democrats say it needs fixing.  The Republicans accept that, and 
then debate how to do it.  They ought to just say, no it doesn't.  Two, 
global warming.  The Republicans ought to just say that man-made global 
warming is a hoax, and _anything_ done to combat it is a waste of 
resources.  The same with "climate change"; the Republicans ought to 
just say that it's always existed and so forth, and while you might be 
able to do some localized, short-term things to affect _weather_ (like 
seeding clouds), we can't do anything to stop climate change, so again, 
anything done is a waste of resources.  Instead they get involved in a 
discussion about _how_ best to "tackle the problem," when they ought to 
say there isn't one.
