I hadn't been aware that Pat Sajak still exists, but apparently, his TV show is still enormously popular. Sajak is a right-wing Republican and an asshole. A frothing major league asshole:

Pat Sajak tweet that
No word if that includes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Climate scientist Scott Mandia responds to Sajak:

You can respond by boycotting Sajak's show and its advertisers.

Update below the fold.

Sajak apparently attempts damage control by claiming he was trolling. Sajak apparently thinks he's funny. Greg Laden responds:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
