Cameron's pigs: Film director James Cameron says those who question man-made global warming are "swine," reports The Aspen Times. Here's the truly telling line of the story: "Cameron and a host of other climate-change activists said there needs to be a broad educational campaign, one aimed at convincing voters and politicians that not being able to prove that fossil fuel-produced carbon is changing the temperature of the Earth is not a license for inaction." As George F. Will might put it, "Well."

What a guy: As you know, U.S. taxpayers have sent controversial Ground Zero imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on a "religious tolerance" tour of the Mideast. This would be the same imam who, according to Human Events, told an audience at the University of Australia in 2005 that the United States is worse than al-Qaida. Specifically: "(T)he United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaida has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims." It takes all kinds, doesn't it?

President "Extreme": Forty-eight percent of the electorate say President Barack Obama's views are "extreme," a new Rasmussen Reports polls suggests. The poll, however, did not define "extreme." Must be like "pornography" -- you know it when you see it.
