Well I guess it’s also Harry Reid Day here on E!!
Here’s the text of an automated phone message Chuck Muth received last week…
Hi, this is Lydia with the Sierra Club. Nevadans have fought long and hard against the dangerous nuclear waste dump in Yucca Mountain. And leading that fight has been Sen. Harry Reid. Last week Sen. Reid continued to highlight the dangers of transporting hazardous nuclear waste across the country and into Nevada. Please call Sen. Harry Reid at (702) 388-5020 and tell him Nevadans are united against the proposed Yucca Mountain project. Again, please call Sen. Reid at (702) 388-5020. Paid for by the Sierra Club.
If Nevadans are truly “united” in their opposition to Yucca Mountain, and if Reid has led that fight, why would the Sierra Club feel it necessary for Nevadans to call Sen. Reid…?
Perhaps they think he is getting senile in his old age.
Or perhaps it’s as Chuck suggests: “the anti-nuke crowd is running scared these days – especially with the licensing process moving full speed ahead and with the head of the Nuclear Waste Project Office, Bob Loux, resigning after being caught with his fingers in the taxpayers’ cookie jar.”
