  •  He says he got this idea (8+ / 0-)

    from a town supervisor/nuclear Navy vet who had considered running for the GOP NY-20 nomination.

    But he's probably lying, again:

    Since the 2008 campaign, Republicans have been promoting an "all of the above" energy policy under which the country would rely on a mix of oil, gas, coal, nuclear, solar, wind, and other sources to meet national energy needs.

    Gibson's advocacy of nuclear power serves two political purposes -- punching hippies and exciting the know-nothing GOP base, and kissing up to construction trades unions who would normally support Democrats.

    It is not, in any way, a serious idea to deal with NY-20's energy/jobs problems.  

    A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
