Claire McCaskill: Rooting for Bad Economic News

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) lets the mask slip -- putting radical environmentalism ahead of economic growth while speaking with her fellow leftwing base:

"Well, the good news is, our [carbon] emissions are way down because of the recession. I mean, really, if you want to find a silver lining in the cloud, the number that we were looking for [with cap and trade legislation] ... we are well, well [ahead of our goal]...because we have had such a real drop in manufacturing output."

As I note on my blog, McCaskill's not the only Learjet leftist in recent years to find such good news in the economic misfortunes of others.
