Drill, baby, drill

At the Interior Department, they take that command seriously.

Yahoo had another take on it, with this quote:

"Sexual relationships with prohibited sources cannot, by definition, be arms-length," Devaney said."

For obvious reasons, I thought of you.

And some folks want 4 MORE years of this?

Evil: It's the new good!, By Mark Morford, SF Gate Columnist, September 10, 2008

The devil isn't evil, he just has lousy PR.

Examples? They are legion. Here's one the Powers That Be desperately hope you'll swallow, a nasty piece of marketing gall ....

Here is "clean coal." Isn't it beautiful? Truly, the hell-bound ad agency that coughed up that one even had the nerve to film a commercial featuring Kool and the Gang's "Celebrate" playing over perky scenes of manic Americans sucking down electricity like John McCain sucks down extra oxygen, claiming that coal is America's namesake resource and we should therefore kneel before it and worship it like apple pie and horrible sex-ed and Lindsay Lohan's nipples. Did I mention the coal industry's PR people are going to hell for this? Count on it.

There is, of course, no such thing as "clean coal." It's as impossible as a humanitarian Republican, as insulting as Homeland Security.

... "clean coal" is not only one of the most insidious, repugnant oxymorons -- right up there with "friendly fire" and "conservative think tank" and "Alaskan teen virgin" -- it's also one of the deadliest.

Oily bodies sporting on beds of coal.

"There is, of course, no such thing as "clean coal." "

Too bad the enviros have made us use coal for decades now because of their opposition to nuke.

"Harder and deeper!!!"

Our mantra on energy should be invent, innovate, diversify. I love what Friedman had to say on the issue:


On drill, drill, drill...

"It would be, Tom, as if on the eve of the IT revolution, the revolution of PCs and the internet, someone was up there standing and demanding, “IBM Selectric typewriters, IBM Selectric typewriters.” That’s what “drill, drill, drill” is the equivalent of today."

Interior in bed with big oil? The screwing goes far beyond the participants. So 13 employees will face some form of discipline. What about big oil? Anybody think this Admin. will impose accountability? Not a chance. Just keep going to the pumps, bending over and paying for it.
