The DNC: It’s not easy being Green…

Tell this guy something he doesn’t know…

Came across this Wall Street Journal piece in yesterday’s Houston Chronicle,

The Greenest Show on Earth: Democrats Gear Up for Denver

Democrats are jumping through biodegradable hoops to make, in the words of Denver mayor John Hickenlooper, their upcoming convention, “the greenest convention in the history of the planet.”

Of course, no decent greening article would be complete without the reminder that indulgences are alive and kicking. To atone for their sins against Mother Gaia the DNC hired a “greening director” (not Kermit) who then hired,

…an Official Carbon Adviser, who will measure the greenhouse-gas emissions of every placard, every plane trip, every appetizer prepared and every coffee cup tossed. The Democrats hope to pay penance for those emissions by investing in renewable energy projects.

Fantastic. Greenguilt-free politicking what can beat that? Nothing, except maybe this post.

Or perhaps this from the Wall Street Journal piece,

Watching the greening frenzy from afar, Fred L. Smith Jr., president of the libertarian Washington think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute, suggested the Democrats could really shrink their footprint by staging a virtual-reality convention: “Just have everyone stay at home with their laptops, sitting in their pajamas, interacting through their avatars.”

Democrats…
