Now THAT is thinking ahead

Imagine seven fun-filled days with trust funders like Katrina vanden Heuvel and sanctimonious blowhards like Ralph Nader aboard the people's cruise ship booked by The Nation! With a large inside cabin for two priced at just $2,000, you can support the interests of The Nation's comrades and you can do it in style. Plus you'll get to hear unhinged rants for a solid week -- up close and personal!

And, not to worry:
"...And we've partnered with Eco-Logic to re-forest a recently devastated area in Guatemala, paying for the planting of enough trees to offset the carbon emissions of each passenger on the Nation cruise."

Well that is a relief!

But... wouldn't each passenger emit carbon even when not on the Nation cruise? Perhaps we could inspire each potential Nation cruiser to hold his breath for the next 20 years to cure Global Warming.

I'd prefer floating around the ocean in a dinghy to boarding a cruise ship with those people on board. I hope that cruise ship doesn't land in Guatemala. Those blowhards will generate so much hot air they'll defeat the purpose of the newly planted trees!

It's also worth noting that National Review, as well as other conservative publications and think tanks, have been sponsoring cruises like this for years. The left is, typically (at least for the last 20 years), late to the party, and copying, rather than leading.

Not that copying won't lead to good things--just look at the Japanese auto industry. But doesn't leave much doubt as to what side of the political spectrum actual leadership is coming from these days.
