This from Reno News and Reviews:
At a debate among Repubican candidates for governor last week, Gov. Jim Gibbons switched his stance on nuclear waste storage twice in as many minutes. After the candidates were asked their positions on the proposed federal waste dump at Yucca Mountain, candidate Brian Sandoval said [...]
Hey! We’re America! We can violate the laws of physics as long as we keep it [...]
Speaking to the Mount Rose Republican Women the other day, my candidate for the Republican gubernatorial primary, one James Tiberius Gibbons, spouted the following:
I am pro-nuclear but I have to be against Yucca Mountain and it’s not because it’s politically motivated. I’m a scientist, remember. I know you can store nuclear waste safely. I [...]
Ooops. Looks like Ed Vogel misreported the Gube’s recent vote on the State Board of Examiners vis-a-vis Yucca Mountain Funding. The Gube didn’t vote against additional funding–he merely argued it was a bad idea to vote for it–before voting for it.
Oddly, this is one case were a correction in the RJ requires an actual erasure of [...]

Hurray for John McLame, who’s out to save the day for the Yucca Mounatain Nuclear Waste Project as Yuuca Boy!!
At a recent panel on the environment where spokesters for prez wannabes gave there opinions on, among other things, nuclear power, the hyphenated McLame stand-in had this to say:
Douglas Holtz-Eakin, policy director for Sen. McCain, said [...]
Jon Ralston tells us today, after catching Harry Reid with his pants around his ankles, that Reid accepted campaign contributions from a rabidly pro-Yucca Mountain Political Action Committee for the Nuke industry called "General Atomics."
Yes, that should be embarrassing to the Senate Majority Leader, and yes, that makes his attacks on Gibbons in recent weeks for [...]
I’m not kidding. Go look for yourself.
The Nevada Democrats have notched up the attack on Gibbons’ decision to give water to the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Suppository. The most interesting bit is the stuff they dug up on Nye County Commissioner Joni Eastley (on the left), whom Gibbons appointed to the Nevada Nuclear Projects Division: [...]
