On Elizabeth Edwards' Tangerine Boycott

So, Elizabeth Edwards "probably won't eat another tangerine again" because of the carbon footprint caused by transporting fruit.

Bullwinkle Blog has a bit of schooling for Mrs. Edwards:

Now thats some sacrifice! How many tangerines could she possibly eat in a year? If she ate enough to matter then wouldnt her boycott cause some farmer somewhere to go broke and his orchard go to ruin? If thats the case and enough people are silly enough to follow her example then a lot of tangerine trees will be chopped down and burned to make room for some crop that will make money so the farmer can feed his family. Thats sure to release even more Co2 into the fragile atmosphere!

Wont it also mean that the people who earn their livings transporting fruit will lose their jobs and add to the number of Americans living below the poverty line? To hear the Edwards family tell it they are concerned about both Global Warming and poverty but to watch them in action they seem to think theres not enough of either to go around. I guess there really are two Americas, one where real people live and one that artifical people like the Edwards family call home.

Heh! As to Bullwinkle's second point, if Edwards is elected, no one will have to worry about being poor because the government will take care of everyone! But since he doesn't have a snowball's chance of winning, we won't have to worry about that. Although come to think of it, Edwards has been buttering up both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama lately...I think he's angling for another VP nomination. Trust me, he'll be around until the fat lady sings.

Can't someone muzzle this twit? Even her husband backs away from her ever-weirder statements each time she opens her mouth. And as Obama and Clinton get more contentious with each other, I'm starting to think that should Clinton get the nomination (which seems, sadly, likely) she'll choose Edwards as her running mate. Which means we'll have more coming from the Elizabeth Edwards piehole.

Pam - whenever I try to comment here, it screens out part of the name of my blog address...just thought I'd mention it (it's the words square and space, all in one).
