An Interesting Definition Of The Word “Stifle”

NASA Scientist James Hansen claims that he was “stifled” by political pressure from the Bush Administration into not giving an interview to National Public Radio on the subject of Global Warming™. Hansen is a believer in the theory that increased CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere will do everything from raise global temperatures to make little kittens cry, and he believes that this is why he was ordered not to do the interview by his superiors, who are Bush appointees.
The main problem with this theory of his is that he’s given over 1400 interviews on the subject. Here’s an idea: maybe his superiors got tired of seeing and hearing him on TV and Radio constantly. 1400 is a hell of a lot of interviews. Or maybe they were just trying to get him to put in an honest day’s work for a change, instead of gallivanting around the talk show circuit like some media-whore. Anyway, I’m sure all those political prisoners locked up in Castro’s jails for speaking out against the Cuban Regime feel a great sympathy for Mr. Hansen. He’s a man who truly understands what it means to suffer for one’s beliefs.

Note: Notice how I managed to squeeze Castro into that story. We’re not called Castro Burn In Hell for nothing.
