Senator Kennedy Whakamoles Cape Wind Project


No doubt there are a multitude of political angles to Cape Wind's desire to place a bunch of giant windmills off the coast of Cape Cod the generate energy but this video from Greenpeace showing Senator Ted Kennedy paying whakamole with the windmills because they might alter the pristine view he has from his Hyannis mansion is, well, just funny. Apparently, Kennedy has buried an amendment into a Coast Guard bill that, if approved, would kill the Cape Wind project.

First off, with the US sitting on large deposits of oil that we are not allowed to extract nor build the refinary capacity to refine, I recognize that Kennedy and Greenpeace are both to blame for our high energy costs.

That said, I find it amazingly funny that we have a situation where greenpeace is fighting a senator known for his support of the same socialist legislation greenpeace is known to promote. I guess greenpeace dramatically underestimated the purchase price of this Senator.

If greenpeace wins would this be an example of two wrongs making a right? :)

Just a word of caution to the bigwigs at greenpeace: If Kennedy offers to take you on a drive through Cape Cod say no! If for some reason you must make sure you bring a life preserver with you.
