John Warner Testifies; Joe Barton Pulls Out the Morning Paper
Former Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) is testifying right now before the House Energy and Environment Subcommittee on the Waxman-Markey climate bill. As a respected Republican who has been at the forefront of the global warming debate, he has the ear of everyone in the room.
Everyone, that is, except Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas). Barton, the ranking member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, is conspicuously reading a newspaper.
