Thomas “Suck on This” Friedman to brief Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources

January 7th, 2009 by selise

For anyone who has ever wondered why our Senators sound so idiotic when they attempt to discuss important issues of the day, today’s hearing provides one answer. Thomas "Suck on This" Friedman, whose only qualifications are to have gotten everything disastrously wrong as well as being a "pretty hideous human being, one which all good people should shun", is who the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources goes to today for advice on the economy and technology to mitigate global warming.

10 am – Senate Energy and Natural Resources
Full Committee briefing entitled, “Investing in Green Technology as a Strategy for Economic Recovery.”


  • Thomas Friedman, Pulitzer Prize winning author
  • John Doerr, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB)

The hearing is not being covered by CSPAN, but will be webcast at the committee website main page.

…. and if this isn’t enough wisdom for you for one day, check out CSPAN (direct realplayer link: CSPAN-3) at 12:10pm to see Henry Paulson’s speech on "Housing and Mortgage Markets Recovery" before the Economic Club of Washington.
