Caroline: Obama II
The Obama phenomenon has been such a success, it has already inspired an imitation. Caroline Kennedy may not have Obama’s ethnic credentials or a name like a terrorist, but she is just as unqualified as the Moonbat Messiah, matches his aura of entitlement, and promises to do to nuclear power what The One wants to do to the coal industry.
Here‘s Obama’s plan for the coal industry, which is primarily responsible for the lights coming on when you flip the switch:
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.
In case New Yorkers thought they could get energy from emission-free nuclear power instead:
When asked about the future of the Indian Point nuclear power plant — which Schumer and her environmental activist cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr. want closed — Kennedy said she also thinks it should be shut down.
“We have an opportunity now,” she said, “to really invest in alterative energy … I think we need to develop alternatives to Indian Point in particular.”
“Invest in alternative energy” means flush taxpayer $millions down inefficient boondoggles, thus creating makework “green jobs.” Since unlike windmills and pixie dust Indian Point actually provides substantial electricity to New York City, it doesn’t qualify.
According to Ben Smith, she managed to say “you know” 142 times in the course of an interview. Top that, Wizard of Uhs!
