Video: “Governor McDonnell’s energy speech”


    Great speech, too bad it isn’t really what the REAL Bob McDonnell had to say. Instead, this is “Virginia Sierra Club activist Daryl Downing giv[ing] the clean energy speech Bob McDonnell should have given (but did not) at the Governor’s Conference on Energy in Richmond.” For his part, McDonnell did the usual Republican/corporate tool “drill baby drill” and “mine baby mine” routine — back to the 19th and early 20th centuries, in other words. Such visionaries, these Republican’ts. (snark)
