The Gov is calling for a “Show-Me Green” tax holiday so we can all go out and buy new Energy Star appliances with our federal rebate checks. I wonder if the Blunts have shopped for a new dishwasher or, for that matter, any appliance since entering the executive office. I wonder if the Gov realizes that manufacturing the new appliance may actually be increasing our carbon footprint.
