“Not only are Tauntauns carbon-neutral,” Lee continued, “but according to a report a long time ago and issued far, far away, they may even be fully recyclable and usable for their warmth on a cold night.”

V CRAY things that Mike Lee presented on the Senate floor just now against the Green New Deal:
– Ronald Reagan riding a velociraptor that’s holding a tattered American flag
– Aquaman and his sea horse
– a scene from Sharknado 4
IT’S ONLY TUESDAY

We have to have a long talk about Sen. Mike Lee’s sanity, and the sanity of those that voted for him. Because he really thought THIS was it.

The Green New Deal—despite being a non-binding resolution, not a bill that could turn into law—is one of the most controversial initiatives in both houses of Congress.
