Surprise: Liberals Are Sometimes Called Nasty Names

Liberal pastor John Pavlovitz irritates far more conservatives than I ever will, but between the two of us, I’m willing to bet I’m the only one who’s been called a “cockroach” on a syndicated live radio show.

A caller wanted to share his opinion of me, after I presented a bit of climate science to the audience, resulting in this insect metaphor, on the basis that I was scaring Americans into believing a hoax.

I chuckled, and responded, “Look, my job is to interview scientists and to boil down and present their findings to large audiences of people who, generally, don’t have a great deal of scientific training.  This is what I do for a living.  If that makes me a cockroach, I really don’t know what to tell you.”
