Standard Examiner Stumbles Over Endorsement

I've got little to say about this than that it is quite possibly the most poorly informed and directionless endorsement I have read in my lifetime.

The congressman also has a sound energy policy that includes support for alternative fuels. In fact, he would like to see alternative fuel use increased over 10 years from 6 percent to 15 percent or more. But he is not an ideologue. Bishop understand that it is critical for the United States to achieve energy independence. He supports efforts to tap oil shale in Utah and elsewhere, and also backs increased drilling. He wants all energy options to be on the table. He knows that energy success drives our economy. Bishop further understands that the energy crisis is connected to military issues. It's critical to meet future energy needs to keep America and its allies safe from terror threats, he says.
Apparently they missed his very ideologue-like posturing during the offshore-drilling "protest" on the Hill. I'm not saying there isn't a reason to support Bishop. Many straight-ticket voters seem to. But oil shale, his energy policy, and his "not being an ideologue"? Really?

Apparently the Examiner has been too busy selling newspapers to pay attention.
