For sports, I follow things like football and baseball, I haven't turned politics into my sport.
In the past, Ms. Whitney stated, "Quite inconveniently for Al Gore, and for the rest of the politicians who continue to advance this delusion, any 10-year-old can invalidate their thesis with one of the simplest scientific devices known to man: a thermometer."
Lenar Whitney: Climate change is the biggest 'deception' - UPI.com
That statement would imply that she had seen information concerning temperature data indicating that the world is not warming.
Here's what the interviewer noted in The Washington Post:
Whitney’s brand of rhetoric obviously resonates with some very conservative Louisiana voters who view President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency as big-city elitists directly attacking the state’s energy industry and their own way of life. And she would hardly be the first “climate denier” elected to Congress. But it’s not unreasonable to expect candidates to explain how they arrived at their positions, and when I pressed Whitney repeatedly for the source of her claim that the earth is getting colder, she froze and was unable to cite a single scientist, journal or news source to back up her beliefs.
The most frightening candidate I
The gap between her unambiguous claim and her inability to respond to the question revealed that her unambiguous claim on climate change was nothing more than a hollow soundbite. Not every political leader will reach or accept the same conclusions on given issues (even matters where there is scientific or economic consensus), but the adoption of superficial positions that are little more than soundbites does not give confidence that such leaders will be willing or able to make informed judgments.
IMHO Lenar Whitney was well prepared for the inevitable questions about teabagger fundamentals by the media. The smartest thing she could have done was to STFU and run away before her profound stupidity could spill out into the public domain.
She knows that her best chances for being elected are to keep her stupid teabagger beliefs known only to teabaggers.

At least she doesn't think Guam is about to capsize. Of course that idiot got re-elected by his idiotic constituents.
That said, does anyone care anymore about the Obama birthplace question? Don't we have big problems in this country that need to be addressed? Why not ask her questions about specific important issues?
Why do people say global warming is a "hoax"? Reminds me of the dingbats who say the holocaust is a hoax. Say you don't think it's as big an issue as others do, say it's too politicized, say you don't really care about it, but ffs don't call it a "hoax"!
How hard is it to say I have never hit my wife...I have never hit any woman.
