Some local news about our favorite commie, Jim McDermott. Apparently he now has a blog (H/T: Steve Beren) over at the new online version of the Seattle PI. A sample:
A few weeks ago the House Ways and Means Committee, of which I am a Member, held a hearing on climate change. One prominent witness called by the other party to testify said he didn't think climate change was real. He said it with a straight face and using deep tones meant to convey that he was the expert and we were rank amateurs.
"He said it with a straight face and using deep tones..." What a jerk, eh? Hello? McFly? Maybe he was presenting his opinions with a straight face because he REALLY BELIEVES WHAT HE IS SAYING!!! Gosh!!! And it is quite possible, bear with me now, that he was attempting to convey the seriously calamitous consequences of your own clumsily held environazi, alarmist viewpoint. Maybe, just maybe, that's why he was using those scary, scary, deep tones. Don't be scared Jim, hopefully you won't have to listen to any of those scary "willful deniers" for much longer, because hopefully you will be out a job before long. SNAP.
Well, if that scientist got ol' Jimmy's panties in a twist, then I'm sure he is going to be horrified to know that abnormally low levels of CO2 can cause sudden fainting and (now in a deep tone) even death.
On a side note: is it not some violation of campaign financing to allow an elected official to be a regular blogger on your news site? Does anyone know if this is just inappropriate or actually somewhat illegal?
Anyhow, you know what you must do, right? Keep an eye on his PI blog and make your voice heard. He won't listen, but we'd better use our right to free political speech while we still have it.
