You are what you eat, and you are what you say. Or put another way, the kind of person you are is revealed by the language and terms you use to characterize those whose politics or policies you disagree with. Ken Green tells me everything I need to know about him here, of which this is a sampling:

So let's see who is running the asylum under Obama. As I pointed out in 2009, Obama's science team is composed almost exclusively of environmental radicals, and until recently, Carol Browner, Gore's disciple (and yes, a card-carrying socialist), was part of Obama's team as well. Her disciple, Lisa Jackson, has unleashed an unprecedented tidal surge of environmental regulations into the teeth of an economic downturn second only to the Great Depression.

Here I thought that environmentalists were thoroughly disenchanted with Obama's green policies. And that part about Browner being a "card-carrying socialist" is quite the gem, and culled from especially credible, non-partisan sources, too! What a proud moment for the AEI gang, when one of their own speaks truth to power with such forthrightness and unassailable evidence.
