Politico’s ‘Morning Energy’ update opened this morning with six paragraphs on Cong. Gabrielle Giffords’s energy and environment policy stances. Fine. Except for its rather clumsy fashion, in the end unable to resist a shame that so many other among their media brethren have also succumbed to.
First was their take that she “vot[ed] in favor of Waxman-Markey (a risky political decision in her competitive district).” Mmm. Then there was some discussion of other stances including threatening the oil industry’s access to tax breaks — no risk to herself in doing this was cited, at least — and a couple that were pretty off the wall. The theme common among them all was that she aggressively promoted increased government spending on and other favors for the otherwise non-viable renewable energy industry.
But then came “POLITICO’s Darren Samuelsohn has a look at the conservative backlash that occurred last June after Giffords asked Gen. David Petraeus to explain whether he had any plans to use solar panels and hydropower to increase fuel efficiency in an otherwise dangerous battle zone” — linking to a full, uh, ’news’ item, “Gabrielle Giffords’s ‘green’ question riled right.”
Yeah, yeah, I know, they’re just sayin’ she was very outspoken abut the green agenda and then she was shot, is all.
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.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
