There is a rich irony in watching Senator Ted Kennedy join forces with Representative Dan Young of Alaska to stop a windmill power-generating project in Nantucket Sound. Rep. Young conservative Republican and chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee often opposes environmental proposals. His ranking from the League of Conservation Voters is zero. Mr. Kennedys ranking is 95 percent.
The Cape Wind project they are fighting would place 130 windmills near the center of Nantucket Sound, perhaps seven or eight miles due south of Hyannis Port, Cape Cod, where the Kennedys famous seaside property it situated. Messrs. Kennedy and Young propose that the windmills be set back 1.5 nautical miles from shipping or ferry lanes. This would make the project impossible in the narrow waters of the sound.
Mr. Kennedy couches his objections only as a concern for shipping safety delicately failing to mention that the 24-square-mile windmill-field would degrade his ocean view. (The 417-foot towers would be clearly visible from Hyannis Port.) Environmentalists whose staunch ally Mr. Kennedy has been arent buying it. They and the Cape Wind developers are outraged at the senators NIMBY (not in my back yard) posture.
This is ironic because Mr. Kennedy is a limousine liberal who rarely meets a liberal cause he doesnt like. But he and others who champion liberal causes often very intrusive and expensive ones dont expect those causes to affect them. Occasions when this happens fall into the man-bites-dog category. I cite a few examples (from a long list) where LLs expect immunity.
Quotas. By being on the politically correct side of racial, gender or sexual preference quotas

"Cape Cod Orca" ping.
His butt's too big. I'm sure he never even felt it.
Liver...do your duty!
After so many years of "the bottle".....I'm sure that the liver hath been owerwhelmed by Liduor.
Teddy Kennedy's Nantucket Sound view has been reduced to a drunken fading memory a long time ago.
Fat, drunk & stupid: with a view. Good work if you can get it.
Ok, how about we get together and get a piece of Nantuckett condemmed for a Nuke plant. GOD I'd love it.
Oh, and what's the latest on Justice Souter's New Hampshire estate?
If you gave my envirowaco brothers and sisters here on the Cape the choice between a steal farm in the middle of the ocean or a small little nuke plant they would chose the nukes.
There is a God after all. Though he pretended to be on the same side... I love it when opposites meet in harmonious union. ROTFLOL!
