Environmentalism makes strange bedfellows

Or outright hypocrisy, in the case of the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, and the aqueduct piping its water from Yosemite National Park to San Francisco. GOP Congressman Dan Lundgren, whose district borders the park, wants the Interior Department to check if San Francisco is doing enough to find other water resources, such as water recycling and rainwater connection.

Nancy Pelosi is leading the opposition to San Francisco actually having to do something.

And, this is why "limousine liberal" is sometimes a stereotype and sometimes not.

Think of RFK Jr. fighting the wind farm offshore of Cape Cod. Or other instances.

It's also a reason to support smaller, non-Gang Green environmental groups that aren't in bed with the Democratic Party. 

It's also why, even if Lundgren is trying to score political points, one should never right Democrats a "liberal blank check."
