Rush Limbaugh discussed Gov. Bev Perdue's apparent support of fracking, calling her action the equivalent of "showing Dracula the cross."
The Dracula in this scenario are liberal groups and environmentalists. A coalition of environmental groups issued a statement Thursday saying, "Perdue should be ashamed ashamed of her ill-conceived secret visit to Pennsylvania only to tour gas extraction operations, as well as her recent statements to the media that 'fracking can be done safely' and that it can 'help America and North Carolina be globally competitive.'"
"To say these things just as her agency gets ready to release its official study and before the public has had a chance to review and comment on it is completely irresponsible," said Hope Taylor of Clean Water for NC, a group opposed to fracking. "This flies in the face of a growing body of information about state regulatory failures and the science pointing to water and air contamination and health damage associated with gas operations."
The amazing part is how the language fits in with Republican messaging, which coined the "secret trip" description. To listen to Limbaugh's remarks about Perdue, click here. Oh, and when he's talking about "Dumpling" ... he's referring to Perdue.
