Subtitle: Irrepressible Grubbiness
This blog has observed before how coal won the 2008 election. Well, speaking of thinking ahead, preparations are underway for the 2012 puppet show. While touting Green Power, the Democrats arrange a Duke Energy backup loan to the tune pf 10 million.
Duke is the nation’s third largest coal-burning utility, thriving on the black rock to generate electricity in five states… Nearly half the company’s plants are coal.
Only 9 percent of Duke’s power generation is “green”. That surely won’t stop the green talk by the Democrat’s 2012 presidential candidate.
Duke’s CEO, James Rogers, is leading the effort to raise $36.6 million to underwrite the Demorats presidential nominating convention in Charlotte next year. So, if the question is will Americans vote for another puppet president, then it’s time for the fleecing, sheep, the show is about to commence. Amusement for Emperor Fossil, doncha kno?
