Think harder, Homer

Oh my.

Just when our own congressman, U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, was getting the big stage thanks to his position as chairman of the House Veterans Affairs Committee during an epic shameful scandal about the way the VA medical system treats veterans, he had to go and do it.

Make us looks like hayseeds again.

Uttering on MSNBC this bon mot of wisdom:

"Why did the dinosaurs go extinct? Were there men that were causing -- were there, were there cars running around at that point that were causing global warming? No. The climate has changed since earth was created."

If only Jeff had paid attention in science class at the University of Florida. Or even in high school a little. Hell, if he even bothered to watch Fox TV on Sunday nights, he'd clearly know why the dinosaurs went extinct.

It was an asteroid, Jeff, that crashed into the Earth. But don't take my word for it. Take the word of Neil DeGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium, noted astrophysicist and host of "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey." 

He most certainly did pay attention in science class. ALL of them, actually.

Watch and learn.
