Quote Of The Day: Sarah Palin "should also lead the nation's mothers to oppose mandating replacement of incandescent light bulbs with the new mercury poison gas bulbs."

Peter Ferrara, who served under US Presidents Reagan & Bush, just tossed an Independence Day stink bomb at tree huggers and climate realists. Fox News, FoxForum, carried his opinion piece, "Sarah Palin Outsmarts the Left" in which he listed good things that Sarah Palin can do for environment and energy policy, while 'not-Governor' of Alaska.
She could advocate sane, grown up energy policies through these organizations, favoring increased production of traditional as well as alternative energy, including nuclear power, while opposing fruitcake ideas like cap- and-trade taxes, and runaway corporate welfare that would bring back Jimmy Carter's synfuels. She should also lead the nation's mothers to oppose mandating replacement of incandescent light bulbs with the new mercury poison gas bulbs.Didn't anyone at CEI explain that admitting mercury is poisonous is a step closer to admitting that coal burning, the single largest source of mercury pollution, is ruining the hunting? And that's gonna make NRA and Big Coal mad.
