We Understand Exactly What You’re Doing Marsha

I love Republican politicians who have no problem investing in companies from which they will profit handsomely while they are in public service (Dick Cheney and Halliburton, Donald Rumsfeld and Tamiflu, Kenneth Blackwell and Diebold ... the list goes on), but they love to pretend like it's a bad thing when Democrats do it.

Al Gore is no longer a member of Congress, a member of any administration's cabinet, or even our vice president or president. He thinks transitioning to a green economy is good business--and so do I. If he weren't putting his money where his mouth is, people like Blackburn would be saying he's obviously a snake oil salesman when he won't even invest his own money in it!

And while we’re clarifying relationships, Marsha, maybe you need to clarify a few of your own.
