Or the commies, or Xiuhtecuhtli, say the conservatives and Tea Partiers who responded to our CHQ Poll.
Your CHQ Poll editor was suffering from heat fatigue when he devised this bit of parody, but our readers kept their cool.
We asked you: “What is causing this heat wave?”
Here is how you responded:
81% None of the above myths.
10% Chinese dragons spewing their fire at the U.S. in a dastardly communist conspiracy to turn us into their slaves.
5% Xiuhtecuhtli, the Aztec “Lord of Fire,” is practicing for the end of the world on December 21.
3% Global warming.
