GOP Debate: Candidates Launch Insurrection Over Global Warming Question

What a strange time to display "leadership". When moderator Carolyn Washburn, editor of the Des Moines Register, asked for a show of hands of whether the GOP candidates thought that global climate change was a real and serious threat and caused by human activity, Fred Thompson led the rebellion, refusing to raise his hands on principle--or was it just laziness?

Pretty soon, the candidates had grabbed control of the debate from Washburn and any serious points to be made by the likes of John McCain got lost in fray.

Obviously, I'm not the potential voter from whom the Republicans are seeking to woo a vote, but I have to wonder if any of them think this kind of ridiculousness makes them look good.
