Rep. Marsha Blackburn Besieged By Boos At Tennessee Town Hall
“We are not stupid,” a constituent yelled at one point. “Stop this.”

A passionate group of constituents and protesters alike greeted Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) at a meeting in Fairview, Tenn., on Tuesday afternoon.
About 130 prescreened people filled Fairview City Hall to hear Blackburn’s remarks. The city’s website said the event was open only to residents (population 8,000) who had reserved seats.

Make sure none of these dickheads ever get elected again.

ICYMI: Bill Nye debated Rep. Marsha Blackburn on climate change and it was glorious

On Sunday’s episode of Meet the Press, Bill Nye the Science Guy debated Marsha Blackburn, the Republican congresswoman from Tennessee who staunchly denies climate change, calling it an “unsettled science.”

Instead of having an actual conversation, Blackburn, who is vice-chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, relied on standard talking points to try to cast doubt on climate change and argued that there isn’t a scientific consensus on the issue (not true, by the way) and that “you don’t make good laws, sustainable laws, when you’re making them on hypotheses, or theories, or unproven sciences."

Watch: Bill Nye debates Rep. Marsha Blackburn on climate change

And just when we think the state of TN can't get any more backwards or ignorant, here comes Marsha Blackburn...

Marsha, did you see what happened a couple weeks ago when a non-science type person tried to go at it against Bill Motherfucking Nye? The internet had a field day because it really was that funny. You’re gonna go on Meet The Motherfucking Press on Sunday to ‘debate’ this guy? Really? 

Marsha, stahp. It’s already hard to admit to living here, & every time you speak you make me wanna crawl further into a hole…a hole where there are non-ignorant peeps are hanging out. Don’t roll up on a Sunday show & make things worse. Please? Pretty please?

And I’m still waiting on you to come 'observe’ the state of mental health care in this state, Marsha. 14 months after declaring such a 'need’ after Sandy Hook & your ass still hasn’t actually personally checked out what’s going on in this state you swear you love oh so very much. 

Also, have you checked out Bill Nye’s bowtie game? He’s got that shit on lock…no matter what you do you’re gonna look a hot mess next to that bowtie. (Political fashion choices, are after all my speciality & such.)

I can't take Tennessee politicians seriously.

One of our congresswomen, Marsha Blackburn, got all upset over new ceiling fan regulations today. 

“there are additional mandates that will impact everything from the angle of the blade shape, airflow, light kits…THEY ARE DETERMINED TO REDESIGN THE AMERICAN FAN.”

“First, they came for our health care…now they are coming after our ceiling fans. Nothing is safe from the Obama administration’s excessive regulatory tentacles"

You just can’t make this shit up.

Bill Nye shreds Representative Marsha Blackburn (R- Climate Change Denier) after she tried to downplay his qualifications as a scientist on Meet the Press:

“She did something which is very common in the climate denier community… which is to talk about credentials. So Marsha Blackburn, a representative in the US Congress in Tennessee, said, ‘Well I’m a congresswoman and Bill, you’re just a mechanical engineer, so you’re not really a climate scientist.’ What I would say is, what we’re talking about at this level of climate science is that you don’t need to be a full-time climate scientist to understand it. Furthermore, as far as my credentials, everybody: I’m a mechanical engineer. I took a lot of physics. All I did was take was physics, physics, physics. And when you’re done with formal physics, then you take mechanical engineering – which is just applied physics. Okay? I get it. I can understand what is going on… ”
