| Nancy Graham? |
What happens when you morph Lindsey Graham and Nancy Pelosi? The results are not pretty...
GLENN: Let's see. I want to talk a little bit about Lindsey Graham. Lindsey Graham is on the phone with Rahm Emanuel several times a week, this according to the, what was the source we found this morning? Was it associated press that was saying that Lindsey Graham is visiting the White House, is the top Republican visiting Rahm Emanuel at the White House. Lindsey Graham. And he talks to Rahm Emanuel all the time. Well, that's good. I'm glad that they can help each other out. Seriously. But Lindsey Graham is there because he's just not going to carry the water for the Republicans anymore. He is going to carry the water for the American people and that's why he's working on global warming. Lindsey Graham, certainly not a progressive. No, no, no. He is just not going to carry the water for the Republican Party anymore. And as you all know, that water used to be a bucket of snow. But because of global warming which doesn't exist anymore apparently, it's now water and he's going to carry it for the American people. And if anybody tries to take that water from him, why, he'll fine them. And if they try to take it away in a big SUV, he will tax that SUV and all the carbon that's involved there. He said now that global warming, cap and trade I love this as we know it is over. Oh, as we know it. What exactly does that mean, Nancy Graham Lindsey Graham? Kind of a cross between somebody with common sense and Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Graham. What does that mean, cap and trade as we know it is over?
STU: I think I can answer this if you'd like to finish the rest of the quote.
GLENN: Go ahead.
STU: Cap and trade as we know it this is a quote from Lindsey, Nancy Graham. Quo: Cap and trade as we know it is dead, but the issue of cleaning up the air and energy independence should not die, and you will never have energy independence without pricing carbon. This is in the same article where
GLENN: That is so weird. Because I remember Enron saying the same thing.
STU: And this is in the same article in which he supposedly proposes a carbon tax.
GLENN: What's wrong with that? What's wrong with a carbon tax from a Republican? What's wrong with a giant, bloated system that you'll never get out from under that can control and wield its power to destroy and build up any way it pleases?
PAT: Nothing. There's nothing wrong with that.
GLENN: I mean, that's progress. We're progressing right to you know, we're marching, it's the march of progress really. We're progressing right into something just fantastic. I wonder if anybody like Nancy Graham would like to ask the question of themselves and then answer it. Progress means that you're moving toward something. You're moving away from something. I know what we're moving away from, the Constitution. Because that is what progressives designed the system to do: Move away from the old antiquated living, breathing document of the Constitution. The republic is an old antiquated, dusty idea.
So I know what we're moving away from, but what are we moving towards? Because at some point you arrive. At some point people have gotten so far out of control that you just have to finally just regulate everything because they just can't do it on their own.
