President Obama Calls Republican Candidates Members of the Flat Earth Society

MSNBC says:

President Obama delivered what was billed as an energy speech on Thursday in Maryland, though his remarks took campaign overtones when Obama mocked his Republican challengers as members of the "Flat Earth Society."

..."Lately, we’ve heard a lot of professional politicians, a lot of the folks who are, you know, running for a certain office. Who shall go unnamed," Obama said. "They've been talking down new sources of energy. They dismiss wind power. They dismiss solar power. They make jokes about biofuels. They were against raising fuel standards. I guess they like gas guzzlers."

More like this, please, President Obama. The media has been so focused on Republican crazytown for the last few months that when somebody actually points out the insane backwardness of their ideas, it's a fun little head rush. It's like spending months speaking in a foreign language and then finally running into someone who's fluent in English.
