Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) has quite a distinction.  He chairs the only new committee that Nancy Pelosi has created as Speaker, the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

Presumably that distinction gives Markey official license to design some pretty creative metaphors, such as this:

“The truth is, the planet has a fever, but there are no hospitals for sick planets.  We have to find a way of engaging in preventative planet health care.”

Of course, on the bright side of things, at least the planet doesn’t have to eat hospital food.
