Chap Compares Cooch's Intellect to "Butter Knife"

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Chap Petersen calls 'em like he sees 'em and nails it big time, calling Ken Cucinelli's decision to sue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over global warming is the equivalent of "taking a knife to an intellectual gunfight." Here's Chap, sharp as a knife. :)
The Attorney General's petition, which is apparently unique in its challenge to the EPA, is not a costless decision. Litigating that matter all the way to the Fourth Circuit will take up substantial attorney time, perhaps $250,000 or more.

And all for a case which the Commonwealth is certain to lose -- as the EPA has clear jurisdiction to regulate air quality.

Who's going to pay for this legal bill?

Not the Tea Party. Not the Republican National Committee. Not the Club for Growth.

Instead, the Virginia taxpayer will pay. That ain't right. There are a lot better uses for our tax dollar than paying a team of attorneys -- not usually in Federal court -- to take on the Federal government, its lawyers and its environmental agency on an issue which has been decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Make that a butter knife.
The question I've got is this: what in god's name were Virginia voters thinking when they elected this extremist and "butter knife" of an intellect named Ken Cuccinelli? They seriously thought he'd be a better Attorney General than Steve Shannon? Well, I guess they're getting what they deserve now. Unfortunately, so are the 828,000 of us who saw this disaster coming and voted for the sane candidate on the November 2009 general election ballot. Now, unfortunately, we're all in the same (sinking) ship together with Attorney General "Butter Kinfe" in command. Boy, are we ever screwed.
