Subject: McCain visiting ANWR

E-mail:

Rich,

Looks like McCain may not have specifically been to ANWR, but he’s probably been close enough.  Remember this trip with Hillary (and Lindsay Graham and Susan Collins) in ‘05 to examine the extent of global warming – er, climate change?

“The question is how much damage will be done before we start taking concrete action,” McCain, R-Ariz., told reporters at the Hotel Captain Cook Wednesday morning. “Go up to places like we just came from. It’s a little scary.”…

UPDATE

 E-mail:I think the reader that suggested McCain has been close enough to ANWR is a bit off base.  The story (s)he linked to indicates that McCain was near Seward, AK.  According to Wikipedia (yes, yes, grain of salt and all), the city nearest to ANWR is Kaktovik, AK.  Neither Google Maps nor Mapquest can actually find a driving route from Seward to Kaktovik (it’s on an island and Don Young apparently hasn’t earmarked bridge money for the residents of Kaktovik – yet), but, by using the scale on the maps, you can determine that they are approximately 500 miles apart.  Or approximately the distance from Memphis to Dallas.  In other words, McCain has not been close enough…
