Slate.com had an interview with Senator biden. Along with the standard I hate President Bush garbage there was in interesting bit that shows that Senator biden knows less than the turnip that fell off the truck, if the 'clean African-American' comment wasn't enough he blames coal and corn syrup for thousands of more deaths than terrorism.
Rose: Sen. Biden, forgetting about the upcoming Iowa caucus for just a moment,
which would you honestly say is more likely to contribute to the death of your
average American: a terrorist strike or high-fructose corn syrup and air that
has too much coal in it?
Biden: Air that has too much coal in it. Corn syrup
next, and then a terrorist attack. But that does not in any way diminish the
fact that a terrorist attack is real. It's not an existential threat to bring
down the country, but does have the capacity still it can kill thousands of
people. But hundreds of thousands of people die and their lives are shortened
because of coal plants, coal-fired plants, and because of corn syrup.
He obviously doesn't understand that coal is necessary for our energy needs, especially if we were to make the move to hydrogen powered vehicles. Let alone that coal gasification is clean burning. Most of the coal that we are using is clean burning. Then to attack corn syrup while trying to campaign in Iowa...guess those Easterners can't tell a democratic symbol from a hole in the ground.
