Lisa Jackson is in over her head.

EPA Sec'y Lisa Jackson (A Michelle Obama pick, I'd say)

EPA administrator Lisa Jackson was forced to admit she had not even read the Waxman-Markey carbon taxing bill before her agency released a report claiming the economic impact of cap and trade legislation would be “modest.” Asked how the EPA could produce a report on a bill they hadn’t even read yet, Jackson said: “We had to make assumptions.”

What others say about Ms. Jackson:

Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility criticized her performance as New Jersey Commissioner of Environmental Protection, stating:

DEP employees describe Ms. Jackson as employing a highly politicized approach to decision-making that resulted in suppression of scientific information, issuance of gag orders and threats against professional staff members who dared to voice concerns.
Hmmm . . . I'm seeing a pattern here.

Another embarrassment?

It's amazing how none of this stuff makes the mainstream news, or if it did, I haven't seen it.
