NIMBY Ted (Not “Nimble” Ted)

Ah yes, the Champion of the Poor is all for alternative energy (because BushyMcChimpler is in Oil’s pocket, natch)…just so long as it doesn’t affect the view by his multi-gazillion dollar vacation home:

WASHINGTON — As record oil prices turn attention to the need for renewable fuels, momentum is building in Congress to buck Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s bid to block the proposed Cape Cod wind energy project, potentially reviving efforts to construct the sprawling windmill farm in Nantucket Sound…
…Environmental groups have launched an aggressive advertising and lobbying campaign to persuade Democrats to abandon Kennedy and back a promising source of renewable energy. If the wind farm becomes a reality, advocates say, it could provide three-fourths of the Cape and Islands’ energy needs and could set an example for the nation.
The maneuver to stop the wind farm ”is clearly a backroom deal, and they’re going to get called publicly on it,” said John Passacantando, executive director of Greenpeace USA. ”The Democrats are going to kill the first big offshore wind farm in the United States because of their relationship with Ted Kennedy.”

I’m agreeing with Greenpeace.
What have I become?

  1. I agree with them because it would screw Kennedy and that is always worthwhile. Geenpeace is a bunch of scientifically-stupid, idealistic idiots. We have wind farms here and they are attractive nesting sites that kill a lot of birds because of the giant Cuisinart attached.
    So the Animalweenies fight the WindyEcotards and meanwhile (from Slashdot) the action of propellers creates updraft and the devices dry out the surrounding landscape, raising the ground-temperature beneath the things contributing to Global Warming. Ha!!

    Man, I love all those giant Cuisinarts around Livermore; very funky looking.

    I was disgusted that apparently Teddy has two Alaskan Republicans (?) and Mass. Gov. Romney in his back pocket.
    Morally, I can deal with dead birds… especially if Teddy is unhappy.

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    Oh, Sen. Ted “Bridge to Nowhere” Stevens, (R), Alaska. Great.

  5. What have I become?
    “A whale!! A great, white whallllle !!!!”

    You’re realistic, Mr. Bingley. Even a broken watch is right twice a day, and Greenpeace has a poorer score than that.
    Although I question the whale bit. I’d a thunk you were a tuna myself.

  7. (You haven’t seen him in his summer golfing togs, Jeff.)

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    I look quite natty in knickers.

  9. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Hmmmmm….you mean he sort of looks like this?
    That would explain the whale part.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    Oooh, that hurts baad, Shrek!

    Kerry was for them. Now he’s not too sure.
    Nothing new there.
    The thing is–dude, they screw up your windsurfing.

    Naw, they add to the challenge Dan! Think of dodging the blades as a manly version of putting the golfball through the windmill!
