So Jay Rockefeller gave a humdinger of a speech, apparently pointing out to Big Coal that the fuel of the 1800’s that powered that Industrial Revolution probably wasn’t going to be the fuel of the future and that they should collectively pull their heads out of their asses, and here was the reaction in WV:
Members of the business community were shocked by Rockefeller’s speech, said West Virginia Chamber of Commerce President Steve Roberts said.
When a reporter called, Roberts answered his phone, “This is Capito for United States Senate headquarters.”
He’s referring, of course, to convicted Republican Governor Arch Moore’s daughter (Moore was convicted on a variety of charges, to include extorting a half million from… a coal company), Shelly Moore Capito, who currently serves in the House and is believed to be planning a run for Rockefeller’s seat in 2014. Remember when the Catholic Church, the Chamber of Commerce, and all these other organizations used to at least pretend to not be fully owned members of the RNC?
