are you smarter than a fifth grader?

Congressman Barton,
I have watched your questioning of Energy Secretary Chu at least five times and have yet to figure out what your point is, unless your point is that you are a bigger horse’s ass than James Inhofe and John Boehner.

You ask a Nobel Prize winner a question about something extremely complex, expect him to answer in thirty seconds, mock his response, yet somehow you have concluded that you stumped him. If this weren’t so ridiculous it would be almost comical.

Congressman, you didn’t stump Dr. Chu and you know it. Climate change is a challenging and difficult topic, one that has been researched by brilliant people across the world, yet the best deniers like you and John Boehner can come up with is cow farts and the game of “I stumped the nerd”. I would like to suggest that if you want to have a serious discussion, bring it on. But if the best you can do is play the class clown, I suggest that you sit yourself back down and let a reasonable person take your spot. I checked your biography and was shocked to find that you are a highly educated person, which makes your stunt today seem even more shallow. Educated you may be, Congressman, but I wonder, are you smarter than a fifth grader?
