Ben Cardin Owned
Okay, so I couldn’t let my kudos to one Democratic politician go by without ridiculing another one–kind of like that “revenue neutral” carbon tax.
The creepiest moment of the day at Gore’s hearing in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee came when Sen. Ben Cardin (D., MD) called, in the context of any new international global warming treaty, for international “support for uniform scientific information so that we all are operating with the same set of facts.”
Gulp. Boy, that actual scientific method is really proving inconvenient.
I suppose it goes without saying that Mr. Gore associated himself with Sen. Cardin’s remarks. If only they had thought of it sooner, we might have avoided allowing a court concluding after three days of evidence that Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth hysteria “arise[s] in the context of alarmism and exaggeration in support of his political thesis,” and that “there is a view to the contrary, i.e. (at least) the mainstream view” (ouch!). Think of the time (and hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in the stimulus bill alone) that we’d save!
Bravo Senator Cardin, Bravo!
