John Deeth Blog: Fallon calls out Boswell on climate change bill

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Ed Fallon pulls a jujitsu move on Leonard Boswell today, using the
ghost of the 2000 election to bash the Boz for opposing climate change
legislation. "If Boswell truly wanted to be 'on the front lines' in
the fight to address climate change, he would throw his weight behind
HR 2454," the American Clean Energy and Security Act, writes Fallon,
who lost a primary challenge to Boswell last year." "As this bill
stands today, I can't vote for it. I don't know of anyone else in the
{House Agriculture} committee who can," Boswell said of the bill. The
2000 presidential race was a hot issue in last year's congressional
primary. Boswell repeatedly attacked Fallon for supporting Ralph Nader
that year, and even got Al Gore to endorse him.
