He exploits everything--even a noble man's death-- to score cheap points for his side. Was it really necessary to play up Borlaug's vague statements on climate change in this article, Marc? Look, I'm already on record about the value of Morano's site. I also get a ton of traffic every time he links to me; I'm glad when it happens because as I have argued, he has a constituency that I think is important to communicate with. Let me also say I have a soft spot for him. The guy is unfailingly congenial and polite. And he has a sense of humor. If I was stranded on a desert island because of global warming and I had a choice to live out my days with either Morano or Joe Romm, it's no contest. If I was stuck with Romm, I'd be miserable watching him putter around with that sour puss, muttering, "I told them so..." Whereas a happy-go-lucky Morano would shrug his shoulders just once and say, "my bad..." Seriously, Marc, sometimes you have to know when to exercise a little restraint and good taste.
