Being a broadcaster, one of my favorite TV shows ever was WKRP in Cincinnati. Readers may recall some of the highest forms of stereotypical comedy that came from the sales manager, Herb Tarleck, seen at right, who had the schtick of a used car salesman down pat.
So, when I saw this
latest headline sales pitch from Joe Romm over at Climate Progress, with the key words “act now” and “super cheap” I couldn’t help but think of Joe Romm channeling Herb Tarleck.
Here’s the pitch (with my embellishment added):
Problem is, Joe is pushing a product few people seem interested in. The latest sales figures show a significant decline.
Pretty soon, Joe won’t even be able to give it away.
As Paul H notes in comments (with apologies to WKRP’s “Big Guy”):
“As God is my witness, I thought CAGW could fly.”
