Oil and mining interests praised Mr. Salazar’s performance as a state official and as a senator, saying that he was not doctrinaire about the use of public lands. “Nothing in his record suggests he’s an ideologue,” said Luke Popovich, spokesman for the National Mining Association. “Here’s a man who understands the issues, is open-minded and can see at least two sides of an issue.”Why are liberals wasting their time kvetching about Warren when these two jokers just got cabinet posts?
“Salazar has a disturbingly weak conservation record, particularly on energy development, global warming, endangered wildlife and protecting scientific integrity,” said Mr. Patterson, who was elected last month to the Arizona House of Representatives from Tucson and who supports fellow Arizonan Mr. Grijalva for the Interior job. “It’s no surprise oil and gas, mining, agribusiness and other polluting industries that have dominated Interior are supporting rancher Salazar — he’s their friend.”

Randolph scored a season-high 38 points to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 120-112 double-overtime victory over the Blazers on Friday night.
Randolph, who was booed at times by the Portland crowd, also had 11 rebounds.
While the Rose Garden fans' reaction suggested that many associate Randolph with the so-called ''Jail Blazers'' era, Randolph clearly has a soft spot for Portland.
''I miss the rain,'' he said. ''I miss everything. I came here at 19 and I still have a house here.''
But the brief trip down memory lane was also a motivational factor....
The Clippers (5-17), with the second-worst record in the Western Conference, sure did. Baron Davis contributed 27 points and made a 3-pointer that sent the game into overtime.
A little D, anyone?
