It's not easy pretending to be green

My doubts about Kerry's environmental record have stemmed mostly from what I know about his anti-war history. From the time that he got back from Vietnam through most of his years as a senator from the most liberal state in the Union, John Kerry was strongly, eloquently anti-war. Once he started running for president, that changed. If he sold out on what should have been his most strongly-held convictions, why wouldn't he sell out on the environment as well?

Well, according to Joshua Frank, he already has. He voted against Kyoto! I don't have time for the details, but Frank opened my eyes on some of Kerry's vaunted 92% environmental record. Check out the article if you're interested. (BTW, my title for this post is the title of Frank's article. Sorry, Kermie!)
