The Washington Post, the paper whose ad slogan is “If you don’t get it, you don’t get it”, doesn’t seem to get it. Apparently seeking to stir voters from their zombie-like lurch to the polls to reject WaPo’s values and agenda tomorrow, it tries a new spin on the fact that the elections should doom capntrade for the near future. Scaaarrry.
Screaming from page A4 is a story headlined (in the print edition…the electronic edition, which tweaks the title, does not trumpet the item as its homepage has little room for non-“Sanity” event-related items): “Election could affect U.S. pledge on international climate aid”.
It’s only been 11 months, surely you recall that $100 billion “climate fund” transferring wealth from rich countries (meaning mostly from…guess who?). That fund was to be paid for by the Waxman-Markey capntrade bill that passed the House and helped seal the result of tomorrow. This wealth transfer was to come from taxing Americans’ energy use in a way that the same bill admits would put many of you golden geese out of work. It admits it by creating a new entitlement of two years of benefits for workers in identified sectors — those that make things, or otherwise produce or use a lot of energy — who lose their jobs as a result of this, ahem, “jobs bill”. But don’t worry. You’ll all be windmill installers soon.
So (cue Bud Light, Real Men of Genius pitchman), here’s to you, Mr. Establishment journalist who so clumsily combines sneering dismissal of Americans’ easily-swayed, over-emotional decisionmaking with an assurance that if only they would listen to you, you’d straighten them out.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
