I’d call him a fraud, but that would be an insult to con artists everywhere. This is something lower, and more comical:
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who is leading a bipartisan effort to put together a compromise on energy and climate change legislation, has exhorted allies to act with greater urgency.
“I want you to go out there and start knocking on doors and talking to people and telling people, ‘This has to happen!’” Kerry said at a forum hosted by environmentalists last month.
“You know, if Tea Party folks go out there and get angry because they think their taxes are too high, for God’s sakes, a lot of citizens ought to be angry about the fact that they’re being killed and our planet is being injured by what is happening on a daily basis by the way we provide our power and our fuel and by the old practices we have,” Kerry told his allies.
He wants people knocking on doors….to inflame the citizenry about our country’s deadly, planet-injuring practices. That’s…really gonna happen.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has called moving the bill a “headache.”
Yes, especially in an already tough election year for Democrats.
