Is the usual enough for Lincoln?

Posted By on Sat, Jan 23, 2010 at 6:47 AM

John Brummett explains that U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln's anti-environmental posture on regulation of carbon emission merely follows her own template -- and that of most Democratic statewide candidates in Arkansas -- to pander to the farm and business community.

Sure. But will that mangy dog hunt this year? It still won't assuage the most fervent anti-environment voters. It won't raise enthusiasm from the farm/biz base. It reduces enthusiasm from other voters and there's a far bigger segment of green voters than the good ol' boys like to acknowledge. It's simple to explain. Pollution is bad for hunting and fishing, not to mention human beings.
