6a00d8341c933a53ef01053503da06970c-640wijpgDuring hearings on new energy legislation today Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn) attempted to discredit Al Gore by alleging—through her constituents—that the former Vice President was profiting from the climate crisis. After laughing with the audience through much her remarks, Gore repudiated the allegations saying “If you believe the reason I have been working on this issue for 30 years is because of greed… You don’t know me.” Watch.

Blackburn and Michelle Bachman must be cut from the same cloth. I say we torture these folks by putting them on the beach and watching them scream for help as the water levels rise. Oh wait a minute… that’s not torture. They’ve said so themselves. Sorry.
