Summer Time a Liberal Plot

I heard this on a recent edition of the News Quiz and thought it must be one of those urban legends, but apparently not:

You may have noticed that March of this year was particularly hot. As a matter of fact, I understand that it was the hottest March since the beginning of the last century. All of the trees were fully leafed out and legions of bugs and snakes were crawling around during a time in Arkansas when, on a normal year, we might see a snowflake or two.

This should come as no surprise to any reasonable person. As you know, Daylight Saving Time started almost a month early this year. You would think that members of Congress would have considered the warming effect that an extra hour of daylight would have on our climate. Or did they?

Perhaps this is another plot by a liberal Congress to make us believe that global warming is a real threat. Perhaps next time there should be serious studies performed before Congress passes laws with such far-reaching effects.

From the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Maybe it was an April Fool’s joke taken too seriously, though I doubt it. In fact here’s the cutting.

    Clearly an American voter who is on the same intellectual wavelength as her beloved President.
