Webfoot Art Robinson For Congress!

While I live in the shadow of Mount Vernon, I actually hail from the left coast. Coos Bay, smack in the heart of Oregon’s 4th Congressional District, in fact. Looking at the Wikipedia page, it looks like they’ve been electing the same leftist tool there for longer than ‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran has besmirched the memory of George Washington. Which is bizarre; my kin in Oregon really aren’t granola heads. I blame California for this sorry situation.
Dr. Art Robinson sounds like what the webfeet need:

Dr. Art Robinson is an internationally respected scientist and educator, successful businessman, skilled public speaker, and expert on energy, medicine and emergency preparedness. He worked on medical and defense issues during the Reagan administration and on energy issues during the Clinton and Bush administrations.
Art gathered the signatures of more than 31,000 American scientists on a petition urging the U.S. government not to take action on the scientifically invalid claim that human activities warm the earth.
Art graduated from CalTech and, after receiving his PhD in chemistry from the University of California at San Diego, was immediately appointed to the faculty there.

What is the point of having a blog if you can’t toot the horn for genuine Americans?

Art Robinson For Congress!

Aside: Oregonians know that ‘webfoot’ is an acceptable demonym. The Oregon football team is the ducks, and ducks have webbed feet. Just so that those who’ve been whipped to a hyper-sensitive froth by the Left don’t think there is something strange going on.

    Go Art!   AGW Sceptic, Non-Consensus Scientist, and clear thinking Conservative.  This former Oregonian (in youth) and current Californian will be contributing to the Robinson Campaign to scrape the resident barnacle off the bottom of the boat.  (Also because my rep is Pelosi which is like fighting the Borg.)  FYI, Robinson’s kids have been mercilessly harassed by the faculty and administration at Oregon State (a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party) for the sin of matriculating while Republican.

    I’m surprised that DeFazio’s district is only D+2 (Cook’s Presidential Voting Index), which means it isn’t an impossible target.  He would be a great one to send home.

    The other Oregon University mascot is a Beaver, which also has webbed feet. I used to live out there, but never heard anyone use the term webfoot for an Oregonian. Never heard the term Oregoner (the demonym in the wiki list) either.

    Yeah, I blame Californians who fouled their nest, moving north and fouling their nest there as well. Oregon wasn’t a bad place to live in the early 60s, but it’s a mess now.
