I try to steer clear of politics but when it comes to water, that is often hard to do. So let's talk about the San Joaquin Valley.
The folks over at Fox News - Sean Hannity in particular - have gotten a lot of mileage out of the 'fish vs. farmers' kerfuffle in California's San Joaquin Valley. Comedian Paul Rodriguez has also weighed in on the issue, supporting Latino farmers and their group, the Latino Water Coalition, which is not so much a 'grassroots' organizaton as it is a front for agricultural lobbyists.
Here is Alex Leo's take.
The other night Jon Stewart took Hannity to task, schooling him on some history, the food chain, and a few other items.
