Lieberman-Warner-Boxer defeated, for now

And a good thing, too. But it will be back. McCain says he would have voted for it, if only he could have been there. How discouraging. Anthony Watts has the story, and good comments. He also has a speech by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who, being in the other House, could not vote on this, but has some fairly pithy remarks: "Do you really think the world is filled with morons? When it comes to bait and switch, used car salesmen are paragons of virtue compared to this global warming crowd." Long, as speeches in Congress tend to be, but worth a RTWT.

Update: Politico has: Dems yank global warming bill. It's strategery, that's all. The transnational progressives can try this over and over again. They need to succeed only once. Unless McCain can be made to see reason on this, so that there will still be a veto threat after Bush leaves office, their odds of success will be greatly improved. And if Obama becomes President, with a Democrat Congress, then the new Depression is ensured. For the good of the planet, of course; although some will have to suffer. For the greater good.
