from ThinkProgress:



Bachmann: Arctic Refuge is the most perfect place on the planet to drill.

The Wonk Rooms Brad Johnson notes that in an interview today, CNNs Ali Velshi, who regularly trumpets dirty energy talking points, revealed that he recently traveled to northern Alaska with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), one of Congresss most vocal Big Oil promoters:

VELSHI: I want to talk to you first about this because those pictures we just showed, we took from an airplane. You were with us on that airplane. You went up there to get a sense for yourself about the impact of drilling in ANWR.


I came away with the idea that this is the most perfect place on the planet to drill, Bachmann said of the trip. Watch it: http://thinkprogress.org/2008/08/13/bachmann-arctic-ref... /


Recently, Bachmann has claimed that Alaskan caribou are attracted to the warmth of oil pipelines, falsely blamed Democrats for blocking renewable energy incentives, and repeated the lie about China drilling off Florida.
