Results of a program using Aspens Canary Initiative to sell carbon offset credits to Democratic National Convention attendees are a little underwhelming.

All I can think of is the scene in Dumb and Dumber when they are having a fundraiser for the Snow Owl and Jim Carrey kills it with a champagne cork!
Maybe they could turn to Rush and have him do a fund raiser! I bet he could bring in more than $18.34
Probably cost them $50,000 to set the program up....resulting in a net loss....
That is just too much. I'm not familiar with the Aspen Daily News. Is it by chance a liberal wacko paper?
Should have had a bullshit offset program...Ed
Boortz and Savage will be all over it.
What the hell is a canary tag?
