Drill-Baby-Drill Clowns on Parade or… Texas-Tea Party in the Gulf?
200,000 gallons-a-day of comeuppance will continue to spill onto the coastal wetlands (think birds,) bayous, oceanfront, fisheries, and shellfish (shrimp, oysters, etc…,) beds of Republican voters of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, and Florida. This will go on for several months, and should swamp all the gulf states in black gold. By the end of May, Big-Red-State Texas voters should be so sick of tea-partying on Texas tea that they may start reconsidering the revolution. They’ll breathe in the toxic fumes from the small amount of oil BP is able to burn off the slick surface, but, as if they were watching a fireman urinate on a burning barn, their hearts will be hollow. Those glory days of McCain/Palin-convention mass-anti-intellectual hysteria will not be visited again until this history can be forgotten and “Drill-Baby-Drill!” can be resurrected by a new generation of mouth-breathing knuckleheads.
But, I will be looking for them this Sunday. I will enjoy seeing which Republicans show up on the Sunday political talk shows. I want to see their spin. I would, of course, rather be watching Democrats drop-kicking Republicans on the issue, if only Obama hadn’t chosen this issue to mollify Republicans with just prior to the gulf spill.
Obama should not only rethink his political posturing on this issue, but on nuclear power, too. Let’s not wait for a meltdown.
