Everyone on both sides of the Nuclear arguement know self serving, inhaler toting Pro Nuclear Renaissance, anti coal, self professed Green Nuclear Pitch man Norris McDonald. Like a bad penny, he just keeps showing up everywhere, squirrling a picture of himself next to famous people and large nuclear reactors at various locations and events to feed his hunger for the limelight. Back in September, none of us were surprised to see his PHOTO OP picture with Condi Rice (of Birthing Pains fame) appear on one of his web sites. Posted below for your amusement, and to set the stage for, as Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story is the article from his web page dated Thursday September 27th, 2007 .
AAEA President & Condoleezza Rice At Climate Summit
AAEA President Norris McDonald attended the "Major Economies Meeting on Energy and Climate Change at the U.S. Department of State. He is pictured at left with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. McDonald expressed AAEA's support for President Bush's climate change programs. He mentioned that AAEA is working hard on climate change mitigation and offered our organization's assistance to the State Department to assure the success of the administration's current effort.
President Bush addressed the delegation at the State Department on the second day. McDonald attended the speech. He proposed a new International Clean Technology Fund that would help developing countries buy nuclear power plants, clean burning coal fired power plants and other technologies.
Now, Fast forward to another Norris McDonald blog dated some two and a half weeks later, and we have to wonder just how desparate for the limelight Mr. McDonald really is? Do we have a pro nuclear hack now trying to write his own celebrity GOSSIP to make himself seem bigger than life, far more important than he really is?
Posted below from the AAEA Hollywood blog is one of those JUICY GOSSIP stories people just love intimating a ROMANTIC CONNNECTION between Norris McDonald and Condi Rice that was supposedly posted by the blogs contributing writer Hollywood! One tiny little problem though for those of us who KNOW HOW BLOGGER WORKS...the poster of the blog entry is always POSTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THEIR POST...if you scroll down to the bottom of this particular post, it appears that Norris McDonald himself has written this JUICY GISSIP himself, is trying to spread the rumor himself, is credited by the blogger software as posting the story to the AAEA Hollywood blog all by himself. Talk about a NEW LOW! Does Norris McDonald have no shame? NEI and the Nuclear Industry claim him as their own?

AAEA President Denies Relationship With Condi
By Holly Wood
A recent photo of AAEA President Norris McDonald with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, left, at an official Washington event has led to speculation that there is more than official business going on between the two. McDonald is denying any sort of relationship with Secretary Rice and states that such speculation is simply silly gossip. He added that he has nothing but respect for Dr. Rice.
When I contacted McDonald and mentioned the gossip to him, he acknowledged that "Ms. Rice is a very intelligent and beautiful woman and that any man would be lucky to have her as a wife or friend." He stated that he would love to work with Dr. Rice on climate change issues because AAEA is in the forefront of promoting technological solutions to this serious problem. AAEA also supports the Bush Administration's technology solution programs.
