This is a great week for Blue America-endorsed progressive Democrat Donna Edwards (MD-04) and the Maryland chapter of the Sierra Club just capped it off by bestowing their 2007 Conservationist of the Year Award on her. As you know, Nancy Pelosi has chosen this weekend to host a bevy of corrupt lobbyists and Establishment insiders in Silver Spring who are supporting Donna's opponent, one of the most reactionary and bribery-prone Democrats in Congress, Steny Hoyer protege Al Wynn.

So while Pelosi and many of the worst elements of American politics were planning their gala fundraiser for Wynn, Donna was being "honored for her years of commitment and service to the environment with the 2007 Conservationist of the Year Award from The Maryland Chapter of Sierra Club. Bonnie Bick and former board chair Betsy Johnson, on behalf of the Maryland Chapter and its chair, Mike Martin, presented the award to Ms. Edwards at the Sierra Club Jamboree held at the Catoctin Mountain National Park."
"It's an honor and a privilege to receive this award from the Maryland Chapter of Sierra Club," said Ms. Edwards. "I have worked with many of these dedicated individuals on various environmental issues and I am proud to receive this recognition from my peers. I look forward to many more years of working together on the local and national level to promote environmental conservation and to address global warming."

"Donna Edwards is a true environmental leader," said Mike Martin, Chair of the Maryland Chapter of Sierra Club. "She has consistently provided the vision and the hard work needed on behalf of environmental issues locally and nationally for many, many years."

"I was so proud to be able to present this award to a long-time environmentalist," said Bonnie Bick. "Her hard work to make National Harbor more environmentally friendly and an all around better development for the community is a testament to her dedication. National Harbor is now an excellent example of a win-win situation for the environment, the community, and business development."

Al Wynn's environmental voting record, like so much of his record, is far to the right of Pelosi's and far to the right of where his constituents stand. He's not getting any awards from anyone who cares about the environment. Take 11 seconds to hear Donna explain why this Congress has an 11% approval rating:

Do you really want BETTER Democrats? You won't find one better than Donna Edwards-- anywhere. Across the internet, we're halfway to our goal of raising the same $100,000 in people money that Pelosi plans to squeeze out of favor-seeking lobbyists on behalf of Wynn tomorrow. Please join us in standing up to corrupt Democratic insiders the same way we stood up to corrupt Republican insiders. Here's the place to do it.

That's a great win for the Democratic party. Removing the jellyspine filth from our own house is as important, if not more, as beating the Repigs.

All Bush Democrats must go. Every last one of them.
Congrats to Edwards, I somehow feel a little cleaner now.

I think aion kina changes my life. Because of aion online kina, I meet a lot of friends. Besides, my friends usually give me some aion gold. I usually buy aion kina through Internet and advice from my friends, so I gain a lot of cheap aion kina and harvest in life.
