Blaine Luetkemeyer is trying to make lemonade out of being mocked by the P-D editorial Thursday for his dingbat notions on climate change. He sent a fundraising letter to constituents:

Will you help me by contributing to our campaign and show the liberal St. Louis Post Dispatch they are WRONG?

I don’t know how much cash that may have netted him, but it definitely earned him a rejoinder from the Post, which, after citing Blaine’s complaint about “a liberal agenda of taxing businesses and forcing us to ride bicycles to work,” concluded the posting:

We are of two minds about this. Contributions might better be spent to provide Mr. Luetkemeyer an education in science. But if he’s defeated by someone with critical thinking skills, what will we do for fun after we ride our bicycles to work?

The posting is worth a look, if only for the picture.

I’d recommend that the congressman keep in mind Mark Twain’s advice that he should: “Never pick a fight with someone who buys his ink by the barrel.”
