But one blogger says that the hot-air in the balloon might be a better symbol for Wilson.
Bush owes Heather Wilson, big time. (Yeah, Cheney and his oil cronies too.) Heather's voted against royalty relief limits for oil companies, she's voted against increased fuel efficiency standards, she's voted FOR drilling in the ANWR, and voted FOR the Energy Bill that subsidized oil companies. (Right, "subsidies for oil companies" is not an oxymoron in Heather's world.)

Meanwhile, Democracy For New Mexico has similar sentiments.
Heather Wilson: supporting legislation that will dirty our air, member of the League of Conservation Voters' infamous Dirty Dozen, recipient of dirty money from the Abramoff, DeLay, Safavian crowd. Her dirty secret? She supports the radical Bush agenda more than 90 percent of the time, while pretending to be an "independent moderate." You know what to do.

I agree with both of these, and would also like to add that giving money for the Madrid campaign is for more than just money to get Bush's buddy Wilson out of office -- it's there to get a very good woman into office.
I wrote Tuesday about the contrast between the two candidates environmentally. This is not a lesser-of-two-evils type election. It is one who does good for her enivironment and constituents vs one who does ... well, she does favors for Big Oil.
Do the right thing and contribute to the Patricia Madrid campaign. And even if you're reading this from outside of our great state of New Mexico, you can contribute to put a Democrat who cares about her state and country in place of a Republican who cares about money and oil. I did my (very) small part and put $5.05 towards the campaign (couldn't resist doing the whole area code thing...). Every little bit helps.
(BTW, they've already reached their goal, but why not put them way over the top?)
