Mike Tidwell, executive director of something called the Chesapeake Climate Action Network really needs to stop writing editorials in the dead tree media and take his act live. Really, this guy gives Dave Barry a run for his money in the written funny category. If he were to hone his talents in a club setting before a live audience, he could give Jeneane Garofalo a real run for her money as the stereotypical humorless leftist humorist. I haven’t laughed so hard all week. Have a read but fair warning, don’t have a mouthful of your favorite beverage as you grind through this hilariously classic example of authoritarian environmental group think. My favorite bit is this regarding “The Once” turning up the heat on Congress to enact draconian carbon restrictions on our economy.
“Does anyone doubt that our charismatic current president has the capacity to turn up the heat? Imagine the back-room power of a full-on “Obama treatment” to defend America’s flooding coastlines and burning Western forests. Imagine a two-pronged attack on the fickle, slow-moving Senate: Obama on one side and a tide of tweets and letters from voters like you.”
Please! Not the dreaded two pronged attack of the “full on Obama” combined with a tide of tweets. Comedy gold. I for one am eagerly awaiting Mr. Tidwell taking his routine to the next level.
