McCain: "Never, never, never." [krakatoa]

Senate Democrats unveil their chapter and verses in the growing Anthropogenic Global Warming mythology today, with a Cap and Trade bill written * by Barbara Boxer & John Kerry.

John McCain for once has taken the bull by the horns and proclaimed his opposition in no uncertain terms.

McCain complained that the Democratic bill merely paid lip-service to the nuclear power industry. Republicans want to encourage the building of new nuclear generating facilities with additional government aid in the climate bill. They argue it is a necessary tool in expanding "clean energy."

If John Kerry and his magical Cap and Trade Commandos have lost the cover McCain would have provided for the Blue Dogs, have they lost the battle?

This close to the 2010 campaign season, I suspect moderate Democrats in competitive races will be hesitant to don the green AGW robes and vote for a giant tax increase. Even the Democrats wouldn't be tone-deaf enough to pick this up again next session, right?

If the Senate cannot manage to pass a climate bill this year, Democrats would likely take up the debate again in 2010.

You will never go poor betting on the obliviousness of a Senator.

* And by written, I of course mean it is largely unfinished, a recurring theme in this Congress.

In coming weeks, Boxer's Environment and Public Works Committee will have to plug in key details still unresolved in their draft bill.

CORRECTED: steevy & Li'l Miss Spellcheck are all up in my grill. Although anthropomorphic works as Satire. Yeah, That's the ticket! I was using the word satirically. You know, kind of like all that "Kill Bush" porn so prevalent the last decade.
