ANWR drilling foe in House takes heat for no-show
MARKEY: Massachusetts Democrat has never visited Arctic, forgoes Kaktovik trip.

A short, but telling piece check-full of silly Ed Markey quotes. He thought the USAF Special Air Mission (The 89th Airlift at Andrews AFB, the server of which is refusing connections this morning) was too busy flying it's executive aircraft in Iraq to haul a few Congressmen to the North Slope, so he sat the trip out. His reply to the aggressive Washington press corps on why he's never been to the cathedral called ANWR: "I have never been to Yosemite, and I have never been to Yellowstone," Markey said. "I don't think that anyone who is an environmentalist should have to apologize because they ... can't possibly, logistically, visit every single location in America they believe should retain its pristine natural condition."
Yeah, Ed, Whatevah.
I will give him this much, though- he does have a good webpage.
