Me neither. Which is only part of the reason this argument is ridiculous.
Washington (AP) — A climate and energy bill being pushed in the Senate would cost American households 22 to 40 cents a day – less than the cost of a first-class postage stamp, the Obama administration said Tuesday.
They’ve also failed to mention what it would cost the energy producers to install unproven technology to reduce emissions of something that may or may not be contributing to the phenomenon of global warming (which may or may not be actually happening). We would be paying those costs too in addition to funding the new bureaucracy in charge of making energy more expensive.
But that’s not the only stupidity here. We’ve also got this comment.
Obama said the spill was a stark reminder that the days of cheap and easy-to-get oil are numbered, adding that the tragedy unfolding in the Gulf should spark Congress to embrace a “clean energy” future that lessens dependence on oil and other fossil fuels.
No, the spill is a stark reminder of the tyranny of so-called environmentalists that push legislation that keeps oil companies from drilling in places where oil is far more easily accessible (ANWR anyone?). By pushing drilling equipment that far away from land, you increase the difficulty in obtaining the oil and increase the risk of accidents. But it makes people feel better if they can’t see it.
Here was an accident caused by over-reaching regulations, and the proposed solution is more regulation. At least they didn’t halt the cleanup effort over some made up safety concern. Oh wait! Because contacting the company that built the barges to find out how many life vests are on board is so much more logical that stepping aboard and counting them.
And the story does not disappoint. They say the guy was off his medication. I’ve got to wonder what kind of meds this guy is on. If it seems perfectly normal for you to show up at a gathering of Hell’s Angels wearing a pair of shorts and carrying a puppy which you proceed to hurl at the people after dropping your pants and then choose a vehicle as swift as a bulldozer to make your dazzling escape, you must need some pretty powerful medication.
Wait! I think I know exactly what happened.
Why didn’t I think of this before? It explains everything.
Remember the unicorns and rainbows we were promised during the presidential campaign? And also how the man that won decided to campaign in Germany?
Are you seeing it yet?
It seems the unicorn and rainbow delivery service got confused and sent them all to this guy in Germany! He OD’d on the Hope! and Change! thus causing an inflated sense of invulnerability. The euphoric high caused all his antics of the day.
See? My logic is infallible. Tell me the solutions the current administration has come up with to solve any problems make any more sense than dropping their pants and throwing a puppy at it.
In fact, that’s my new generic answer to life’s problems.
Mortgage payment past due? Drop your pants and throw a puppy at it!
Unemployment lines too long? Drop your pants and throw a puppy at it!
Health care too expensive? Drop your pants and throw a puppy at it!
Olbermann: “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days.”
Matthews compared Obama to Carter.
Olbermann: “Nothing specific at all was said.”
Matthews: “No direction.”
Howard Fineman: “He wasn’t specific enough.”
Olbermann: “I don’t think he aimed low, I don’t think he aimed at all. It’s startling.”
You can read reactionsalloverthe web today. He’s bending over backwards trying to keep people from relating this disaster to Katrina. And he’s right-it’s nothing like Katrina. This disaster actually happened where there was federal jurisdiction, without warning, and is being dealt with by a competent governor of Louisiana. This is actually far more like…um…er…The…no.
Oh right! It’s a new disaster all it own and he’s reacting the same way the lefties falsely accused the previous administration of reacting to Katrina.
Michelle Malkin is covering the newest OMGWTFBBQ Controversy Du Jour regarding Sarah Palin.
Because we all know that several of the candidates she supported only succeeded because Sarah’s got a great rack. Hell, twisted at that particular angle, I’d look like I have a great rack. ( I don’t.) But of course the left just can’t handle the fact that she’s got tits and brains and a recently functioning uterus. That, and those boobs have been used for more than supporting her sweaters.
She has used them to feed all those babies she didn’t kill.
And since there’s nothing else newsworthy going on, the media will make boobs out of themselves. So, just another day at the office.
You know, I’m not sure why everyone seems to be so upset that Dear Reader is looking for whose ass to kick. Honestly, it seems far more reasonable to believe he is trying to assign blame as opposed to actually solving a problem. I guess someone explained that he needs a new whipping boy. No one’s buying the Bush’s fault line anymore.
So he’s looking for asses. And, frankly, I’m relieved. This is something in which he’s actually experienced. No really!
And look! He found one!
See? He’s good at looking for asses. He even finds them! Granted, we don’t have any evidence of him kicking asses, but right now, he’s just looking. Just imagine if we’d sent the other guy out for asses instead.
Effective immediately, she will no longer occupy the central seat in the front row of the White House press corps (corpse?). Instead she will return to her position threatening to gobble the goats that trippy tramp over her bridge.
