McCain = 0

In more ways than one, but today in this one particular way: the League of Conservation Voters ranks McCain as a “0” on its newly released 2008 National Environmental Scorecard on congressional eco-votes.

McCain managed to miss every vote of environmental importance in 2008, including: global warming, clean energy tax credits, energy prices, low-income energy assistance, public land protection, and environmental funding.

Guess he was too busy cooking up paranoid theories about “That One” and suspending his suspenders over the economy to get right with the ecosystem (a word I’m sure causes him to roll his Loony Tunes peepers).

Meanwhile, back in the reality-based community, Mother Nature’s patience is wearing thin. If people think the current economic meltdown is kind of a bummer, just wait till the eco-chickens come home to roost.
