I Found the “Hidden” Obama Interview on Coal!

November 3, 2008

Cool! Just like Sarah I read both the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle. Except unlike Sarah I read the articles (and listen to the transcripts) in their entirety.

Sarah’s latest beef is that the SF Chronicle has a “hidden” tape of Obama rejecting any and all coal energy from back in January 2008. I thought something smelled suphurous with that statement: Doesn’t Sarah’s staff know how to Google to find articles? So I went ahead, looked at the SF Chronicle (you know, before hitting Google) and found the Chronicle’s editorial board interview. It has been posted in its entirety on the SF Chronicle site since….er, January 2008. And Obama supports clean coal energy.

Sigh. But I guess Sarah’s getting a lot of play on this in Ohio (land of the solar power plant where Sarah tried to get people to chant “Drill, Baby, Drill”). Ah, Sarah, learn who your audience is and tailor your speeches — like your suits! — to their specific interests. So if the Humane Society ever invites you to a dinner, don’t start waxing poetic about shooting wolves from helicopters for dollars. That might land you in the dog house.

Read the SF Chronicle’s statement about it’s Obama interview and listen to the audio that has been posted since January 17, 2008. Oh, and McCain’s the one who has spoken for years about rejecting all coal-based energy.
