WA Policy Center Calls Pinocchi-Dow on his lying ways
The Washington Policy Center recently sent Dow Constantine a letter asking him to retract his statements calling them global warming deniers.
I sent an email to Dow's campaign but haven't received a response.
I just saw the ad on TV so he doesn't seem to care that he's a liar.

Let's hope that this awakens some voters who didn't realize how brazen his tactics are. If given the chance, he'll likely govern the same way. We have seen this time and time again...
The KIRO on-line poll shows some promise, especially if you take the likely demographic into account.
An enormous gulf separates the fact that world has experienced warming since the mid 1800's from blaming that warming on man. To call someone (or organization) a global warming denier is therefore something of a canard.
I am unaware of anyone that opposes the AGW religion that makes such a claim. Some dispute the amount of warming, and some dispute the extent (or even the concept) that CO2 warms the atmosphere, but all recognize that warming is a fact.
3. @2: Hmmm... so given that the WPC supports a carbon tax, does that mean that they're "followers of the AGW religion" to you?
4. demo punk @3 - cite your source. If you can't, then admit you made it up.
Dow is probably accurate about the core beliefs of the WPC, but has chosen his words badly, since the WPC can easily call him on it.
I invite you follow the link to the WPC site. You will not find much more than lip service to the AGW religious creed there, but they are very careful about obscuring their own views.
As I am sure you are aware, those calling for a carbon tax, do so because it is something Congress will not likely do. It is therefore quite safe to propose and still look to the uninformed like you are trying save the planet.
Being an independent is quite liberating DC. You should try it - you don't have drink anybody's koolade.
6. Candidate's advertisements should be focused on their own records. Mr. Constantine's new TV commercial is all about Susan Hutchison - his ad says nothing about himself.
