|RFK, Jr.'s modest Westchester cottage|
Unlikely Hospitalist is calling for Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to be kicked off New York governor Andy Cuomo's "High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Advisory Panel." Seems the wealthy leftist lawyer appears to be an anti-fracking fanatic, based on Kennedy's recent post on the subject. In the Hospitalist's view, such a zealot is incapable of making reasoned recommendations on shale gas regulation.
It is clear that he is incapable of putting politics aside and performing the task with any sort of professional integrity.
UH further points out Kennedy's bald-faced hypocrisy. One might recall that only a few years ago, Bobby Jr. was calling for an immediate conversion of the country's electric generation to, yes, natural gas. UH quotes RFK Jr.'s 2009 statement:
The giant advantage of a quick conversion from coal to gas is the quickest route for jumpstarting our economy and saving our planet.
The fact that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has flip-flopped on gas does not surprise us. It's been clear for many years that Bobby, Jr. is an unbalanced crazy person, protected from the consequences of his actions by a famous name and an inherited fortune - Google the guy sometime. What does shock us, however, is that such a lunatic was selected by our supposedly intelligent governor for any position of responsibility. Is the fix in?
