Mind you, I want the unions to win this one. After they’ve gone round and round with the Greenies a few more times. Which is horribly partisan of me; then again, so is everybody else.
A letter distributed Friday by the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) to the districts of 27 House Democrats calls for union members to make sure their representative “feels the power and the fury of LIUNA this November.”
Their crime: signing a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last month urging him to reject Keystone, which would carry oil sands from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.
What makes this particularly savory is that the Congressmen involved are hardcore progressives; the letter is hard to find, but what lists I’ve seen of signatories suggest that they’re not too used to intra-party squabbles of this sort. This is free media that can’t particularly splash back on us, in other words; and there’s going to be hurt feelings among our political opponents either way. Pass the popcorn.
