    the reactions of change:

    and another clintonista, this time for head of the EPA. RFK Jr. might be a lot of good things, but he's also a crackpot. He opposes wind power off Nantucket Sound because it would ruin the Kennedy Family compound's precious view, he suspects that childhood vaccines cause autism, he's convinced the 2004 election was maliciously stolen, etc..

    You might as well just confirm up front all the worst stereotypes of environmentalists as DFH anti-intellectual flower hypocrites whose hatred of business is as irrational as it is blind, and destroy the effectiveness - whatever there is left to salvage, anyway - of the agency in the process.

    Mere rumors of rumors of appointments, you say, but let's entertain that these are serious propositions. If the idea is to make some sacrificial appointments to the altar of Clinton and shore up the party, couldn't he find some better baggage? Maybe Andrew Young would be interested in that Council for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships thingamabob? Toss Ed Rendell the DoJ or something? Why not Leon Panetta for EPA? Seriously, I can't really think of too many people that would have something to offer that Panetta wouldn't.

      Sam Wells had the best comment.

      You're not supposed to "vaccinate" babies with heroin, folks, big diff. Plus, our soon to be ex-President was a coke-head and Clinton was a weed head. Let's talk quals and not smack, OK?

      Now he tells me.
