Senators introduce anti-Bush mercury resolution

Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Jim Jeffords (I-Vt.), joined by 27 other senators, today introduced a resolution to halt the Bush administration's rule to delist mercury from electric power plants as a toxic air pollutant.

The resolution invokes the Congressional Review Act (CRA). Because it has 30 signatures, the resolution can bypass the committee chaired by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and go directly to the Senate floor for an up-or-down vote on the Bush mercury policy.

Expect the power industry lobby to gear up for this in the coming weeks.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on the lcdtv in the back of my Hummer.

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
