Cartoonist Chip Bok on Keystone Environmentalists
Chip Bok, Bokbluster.com
In the wake of the midterm shellacking, Louisiana Governor Mary Landrieu wanted to show her constituents that she supports the oil and gas economy her state depends on. So she pushed Harry Reid to bring the Keystone Pipeline bill to the senate floor for a vote. The move seemed kind of desperate considering the House version of the bill bill is named for her Republican runoff opponent Bill Cassidy.
The environmentalist wing of the party prevailed over the labor union wing. She lost by one vote and is now officially under the Democratic Party bus.
