Pat Sajak Overheats with Global Warming Tweet

What does Pat Sajak’s tweet about global warming prove? That he doesn’t know he’s just Pat Sajak and that cough medicine is very strong.
Also, this is the only thing you’ll read all day that mentions Rolf Benirschke.

People have their opinions. And if they choose, they can express those opinions in ways that make them look like real nut jobs.

For example, let’s look at Wheel Of Fortune host Pat Sajak’s Twitter post from Monday:

https://twitter.com/patsajak/status/468581395237842945

 

No matter where you stand on global warming , that just sounds odd. In fact, on the well-known Standard Ten Point Scale Of Oddness, with 1 being “I can verify what I said in thirty-five scientific journals” and 10 being “I’m adding a second layer to my foil hat” this statement scores a solid 8.

As you know, an 8 on this scale corresponds with “I just chugged a bottle of cough syrup”.

 

LET’S PLAY WHEEL OF FORTUNE!

THE CATEGORY FOR THIS ROUND IS: WHY IT DOESN’T MATTER

_ _’_  _ _ _ _  _ _ _  _ _ _ _ _

The man is entitled to his opinion. And, based on my inability to equate race and the debate over global warming, I’m free to conclude that the man spends too much time in the sun.

ARE THERE ANY T’S?

YES, THERE ARE TWO T’S!

_  _’ _  _ _ _ T  _ _ T  _ _ _ _ _

Today, there will be all sorts of howling about what Mr. Sajak had to say.

HMMM. IS THERE A… J?

TWO J’S!

_  _ ‘_  J _ _ T  _ _ T  _ _ J _ _

Some will rush to defend him as a hero who dared speak the truth.

I’M GONNA GO WITH… H!

GOOD GUESS, ONE H!

H _’ _  J _ _ T  _ _ T  _ _ J _ _

Others will wail that he is a fool and an enemy of the planet.

THIS SEEMS A GOOD TIME TO BUY A VOWEL – A!

THAT’S A GOOD BUY, THERE ARE THREE A’S!

H_’_  J _ _ T  _ A T  _ A J A _

Experts will discuss him around  news network anchor desks.

I’M ON A ROLL! I’LL TAKE…S!

ONE S PLEASE…OH, I’M SORRY, THREE OF THEM!

H_’S  JS T  _ A T  S A J A _

We’re going to waste a ton of time listening to some jibber-jabber about

what this guy thinks.

I’LL GUESS ONE MORE LETTER TO BE SURE – K?

YUP, THERE IS ONE K!

H _’ S  JS T  _ A T  S A J A K

No matter how odd it is, what Pat Sajak thinks doesn’t matter because…

I’LL SOLVE THE PUZZLE.

OK, GO AHEAD.

IS IT “HE’S JUST PAT SAJAK”?

YES!

H ES  J U S T  P A T  S A J A K

…because he’s just Pat Sajak! He’s a game show host, not a scientist. Apparently he’s a game show host prone to wacky conspiracy theories, but just a game show host.

A game show host whose job was once done by Rolf Benirschke who also was not a scientist, but was once a place kicker for the San Diego Chargers.

No matter where you land on the wheel of global warming belief, why does what Sajak or Benirschke or Jolie or even I say matter?

Pass the Robitussin. Good night.

  3. Oh this is so true. I saw that tweet and gave it the sideways head-tilt of confusion. It was a leap between three things that had no connection in my mind: global warming, patriotism, and race. But in the end, you’re right. He’s just Pat Sajak and no one really cares what he thinks.

  4. Still, a lot of scientists agree with him. Why don’t you hear about it? Because the new media is owned by 6 “to big to exist” corporations. Chicken Little (aka Al Gore aka I-invented-the-internet) who yelled “global warming” has the “cooked” numbers but the real numbers should temperature changes point to a cooling trend. So the term is being morphed into Climate Change. Why? So that a carbon tax can be levied. If you look at the past 150,000 years you’ll see that the climate on this volatile planet has always been–to put it as bluntly as possible–climate change. We’re looking at that slight of hand to pry more money from individuals instead of focusing on the corporations that are pushing more nuclear power plants (which have to have places to dump the waste, causing massive oil spills (killing off sea life), etc.

    • I’m not going to get in to the climate change thing because I think that part of our problem with so much that goes on in this country and the world is that we spend so much time debating one another that we don’t insist that our leaders reach a conclusion. That’s part of why I left my opinion on the issue out of the piece.

      When someone starts sewing issues together like he did, they sound insane…like he did.

      Like

    • 97 to 98% of the people who actually study climate agree that human activity causes climate change. And while there are a lot of scientists who disagree, a lot of those are geologists, chemists, mining sciences experts, engineers, and their opinion is about as relevant to the climate debate as Pat Sajak’s.

      • Yet 31,000 scientists have signed a petition that doesn’t agree that it’s clear-cut. It’s worth looking past the mainstream media and search the net for other opinions.

        Like

        • You are correct that it’s not clear-cut, because no models making predictions decades in the future are ever 100% accurate. And I agree that it’s important to look past the mainstream media and take a closer look at this petition you are referring to (http://www.petitionproject.org/qualifications_of_signers.php), because out of 31,000 people who signed it, there were just 39 climatologists and 343 meteorologists, but 2600 doctors and veterinarians, 4800 chemists, and 10000 engineers. And their definition of scientist is basically anyone with a Bachelor degree or higher.
          So, basically, taking this petition seriously is about as useful as as taking a petition signed by 31000 climatologists to plan a heart surgery.

          • Thank you for being willing to look past the mainstream media and for looking at the petition. 343 meteorologists and 39 climatologists are still a lot more believable than Al Gore talking about global warming.

            There are more ways than meteorology to discern climate in different areas at different times such as paleontology, also the study of Pollen in ice cores and looking at tree rings. It is worth considering why so many scientific minds are willing to put their reputations on the line.

  5. I feel like this has to be a joke. That tweet was like a conglomeration of idiocy. But, I’m not on Twitter a lot and I certainly don’t follow Sajak, so I don’t know for sure. Maybe he is a fucking retard. In that case, you’re right, who cares, he’s just a game show host! That’s like my uncle telling me he saw alien tracks on our frozen pond — people can say whatever they want and that doesn’t make it news, much less true.

  8. What do you make of the fact that Pat Sajak’s name read backwards is tap kajas? ( pronounced tap cageass). This is Putin’s code word for his troops to occupy Hawaii on July 4th of this year. Sajak is a Pakistani double agent and Vanna White is his code breaker. The word board is used to manipulate the weather world wide. Any code with more than two z’s in it will cause flooding rains in Hoboken, NJ. That ‘s all I’m allowed to reveal at this time. I’m just saying……

  12. When I heard his tweet I felt myself drifting towards personal attack. I mostly resisted the urge and went with “nut.” I’ve heard stuff about him before. This is nothing new and not the first time he’s trotted out the “racist” thing from the perspective of his political ideology, which happens to be a 180 from me. I’ve also heard throughout the years that he’s a bit of a jerk. My interpretation of his reality is that he aspired to be something more meaningful than a game show host and has bitterness and perhaps a bit of shame regarding where he ended up. At the end of the day I really don’t care what he thinks, but it does seem odd to so forcefully take up the banner for such a polarizing issue and personally attack those who feel differently. Tell me again how this is beneficial to his show? As far as Wheel Of Fortune is concerned I feel nothing good can come of this. I certainly will avoid it like the plague. And for that, I thank him.

    Good post!

    • You know, I think that’s what is really odd about it. I get that people have opinions and stand up for causes. But this isn’t disagreeing, this is lashing out at those who disagree with him…a certain percentage of whom are in his audience.

        • I’m sure I neither did, nor needed to. I’ve got a campaign to run here, man. It’s all part of my drive to rid the game show industry of odd little men who make sweeping pronouncements about entire groups of people.

          My campaign has been very successful. When’s the last time you saw Gene Rayburn host a game show? Sure, he’s dead and all, but once he died my campaign staff kept him off the air.

          You know what the best thing is about my campaign, besides my ability to summon my millions of followers to do my bidding? Nothing. Seriously, what’s cooler than that?

          Feel free to call him and have him get in touch, but in the end, I think you may be taking Mr. Sajak, yourself and especially me far too seriously.

          Have a nice day.

  17. Recently when the TV landed on the tail end of an episode of “Wheel of Fortune” I was taken aback at how caricature like both Pat and Vana looked. Definitely too much sun and judging from that glazed look in his eyes I suspect you are right about the Robitussin.

    I like the “Good night” he adds.
    It makes me think that he thinks he’s still on the air, even when he tweets.

    But yeah, definitely worthy of at least an 8 on the Ten Point Oddness scale. So would he be saran wrapping his current tinfoil hat layer on that level? I feel we’ve at least crossed into tinfoil hat territory here.
