“The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t,” Dr. Trenberth wrote."

Looks like Al Gore's profits are in jeopardy- no problem for Al: he's already a multimillionaire from this panic.

Ethics panel -- oxymoron.

Politicians may or may not have ethics,but without this vote we don't get a shot at healthcare and that's a lot more important than any of these clowns.
Besides, if you NEVER, EVER vote for an incumbent, the problem goes away.

Really? A bunch of politicians declined to go after one of their fellow crooks? No news here. Just one more reason to throw these bums all out on their arshes.

There is no such thing as a Senate Ethics Committee. In greater America they are considered the Senate Lack of Ethics Committee.

What a surprise,that we have an other Chicago Democratic crook in Washington. Why don`t you tell the American people some thing that they don`t know.
