The West Virginia Supreme Court Justice featured in this story, Spike Maynard, is now running for congress in 2010. That way he can be the representative from Massey Energy Corporation, the bought off stooge for Don Blakenship in Washington, posing as someone representing West Virginia. Ol'Spike has also invited Sarah Palin to visit a southern West Virginia coal mine to see, and I quote,"We would love to have Sarah showcase modern mining as a clean, safe and cheap way to produce energy...."
Yeah, Spike could take her to the Upper Big Branch mine. Oh wait, maybe NOT! Perhaps Palin could visit the grieving family of Benny Willingham instead. Then she could get a dose of reality, humanity and humility.
R.I.P. Benny and all the brave miners who died. God Bless, West Virginia.
