Governor Sarah Palin has published an opinion piece in The Washington Post about President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy policy, calling it an enormous threat to our economy and saying it would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage. Senator John Kerry, who once had his picture taken with a hunting rifle in his hands, has challenged Palin with comments in The Huffington Post. "The global climate change crisis threatens our economy and our national security in profound ways," writes Kerry.
This is the second time Kerry has challenged Palin in two weeks. It is, as CNN said, Round Two. As Kerry sees himself as point man in the anti-Palin squad, Palin should challenge Kerry to a series of public and televised debates on issues of energy and economy. The Nantucket liberal vs. the Alaskan conservative. Should bring big box office.
