You let 'em have it, Arnold

It's nice to see a Republican with brains...

(CNN) -- California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger plans to sue the federal government over its decision not to allow a California plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, he announced Thursday.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says the state will sue the federal government.

Environmental Protection Agency chief Stephen Johnson announced the decision Wednesday, refusing the state's request for a waiver that would have allowed it to cut emissions faster than a new federal plan the president signed into law Wednesday.

"It's another example of the administration's failure to treat global warming with the seriousness that it actually demands," the governor said at a news conference Thursday.
---------Here's hoping that one day, a governor in the South *might* follow in Arnold's footsteps. I do believe our Gov. Bredesen is the most likely to do so, even if remotely. See the light, Phil!
