And by that headline, I’m not referring to the hot air spewed at tonight’s Democratic debate (of which the video will be here shortly) either.
Take this story from Newsday:
WASHINGTON — A flock of small jets took flight from Washington Thursday, each carrying a Democratic presidential candidate to South Carolina for the first debate of the political season.
For Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, Chris Dodd and Joe Biden, it was wheels up shortly after they voted in favor of legislation requiring that U.S. troops begin returning home from Iraq in the fall.
No one jet pooled, no one took commercial flights to save money, fuel or emissions.
All but Biden, who flew on a private jet, chartered their flights — a campaign expense of between $7,500 and $9,000.
I interpret this as, “we all peddle the global warming junk science but none of us actually believe it”. Yes, they all would have you believe Al Gore is Mother-Earth but not of a one of them would fly commercial.
They will all tell you that mankind is contributing to global warming but not one of them will fly commercial. Thanks to all 8 of you for proving why I am allowed to continue driving an SUV, even when it’s just myself.
Hypocrisy? You better believe it!
I can’t wait for further down the campaign trail when any of them plays the global warming card. I know I will be referring back to this post often.
