Just a Stunt

Big time leaders call "summits" to validate their positions as "Big Time Leaders." Mark Udall wants to host a summit on homeland security.

The Denver Post said a lot about the Mark Udall inspired "summit" on homeland security:

[ Mark ] Udall is not on the House's Homeland Security Committee. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Golden, is.

What a silly subject to have a summit on. Anyone who attends will be wasting taxpayer dollars and time. Much ado about nothing. Prediction: This meeting will never be held.

Aides for Ritter and Udall were not sure when such a summit would be held.

Perhaps next week, Mark Udall will announce that he is hosting a summit on the Prebles Jumping Mouse. He does have expertise in that area. Perhaps he can explain why that rodent is endangered in Colorado but not in Wyoming.
