Paul Chesser in his American Spectator blog gives a stirring account of the drama in the US Congress 4th November election in which democrats who voted for the controversial House 2009 Waxman Markey climate bill were slaughtered at the ballot box. These included republican Rick Boucher one of the prime movers of the bill and over two dozen members who voted for the Pelosi led climate bill who all lost their seats. Pelosi has lost her speaker position, Henry Waxman chair of the energy and commerce committee is gone. As Chesser describes it "the so called scientific consensus on global warming has turned into a political forensic consensus"
resulting in mass defeat for the democrats.
