An anti-global warming dead-ender is holding up some Obama appointments. Talking Points Memo explains why this is good. Let the Republicans, in the midst of Obama's honeymoon, define themselves as global warming skeptics, pro-torturers, pro-secrecy, etc. UPDATE: Some disagreement about which dead-ender is the skunk in this.
Arkansas legislators would do well to think of Obama's example on these and other topics, such as ethics and open government.
