He's Ready

In the title of the article, the words "Yes, I'm ready to be president" are attributed to Marco Rubio. Then he opened his mouth, and this came out:
Sen. Marco Rubio Expresses Skepticism Over Ability to Reverse Changing Climate 
Rubio — who expressed deep skepticism about whether man-made activity has played a role in the Earth’s changing climate — told Karl he doesn’t believe there is action that could be taken right now that would have an impact on what’s occurring with our climate. 
“I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it … and I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it, except it will destroy our economy,” he said. 
In a world where sanity ruled and reality-testing was considered important, where expertise was valued and denialism was scorned, this would immediately make clear that whatever else he's ready for, being president ain't on the list and never will be.

I sure wish I lived in that world. There was a time when I thought I did.

(Maybe laughing about it is all that's left. So there's this.)
