KERRY'S AGAINST ANWR

That comes as no surprise. But maybe the Senator should tour America’s “vast pestilential wasteland” before describing the place as an “Alaska wildlife refuge”.

In 2002, a U.S. Geological Survey stated that, as The Washington Post described it, “the most likely drilling scenarios under consideration should have no impact on caribou”. I guess Kerry never got the memo.

It’s also further proof that in the last decade or two, that ironically, it’s really become the left that’s internalized National Review’s old motto, “Standing Athwart History, Yelling Stop”. No wonder Radley Balko recently dubbed them, with tongue only slightly in cheek, “the conservative left“.
