Black Gold! Texas Tea! What Cheney Puts in His Enema Bag!

Well you knew it was coming, didn't you? I sure did. With gas prices climbing to record levels, it was only a matter of time before Bush and all his oil-making buddies started calling for more drilling.

So, first McCain makes his li'l energy speech to a bunch of Texas-style douchewads, paying the tiniest bit of lip service to conservation, and now the Cavity-Creep-in-Chief does him one better by calling for new offshore drilling and the rape of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. 'Cause, y'know, if those fuckin' animals are gonna get all whiny that we're ruining their homes, why don't the little fucks try gettin' a job and buying a place like the rest of us?

This just pisses me off. Truly. And I worry that most Americans don't have the interest and/or brainpower to stop and ask, "Gosh, Bush spent his life in the oil industry and McCain is desperately trying to raise money from oil barons. I wonder if that's influenced their thinking on this issue?"

Folks, it's as clear as the smirk on Bush's face: oil is a finite resource and the use of it is not good for the planet. For the sake of the generations to come who won't have the chance that we do to stop climate change; for the security we'd achieve by lowering our dependence on truly vile nations who sell us oil (except for you, Canada! You rock!); for the money the average person can save with alternately-fueled cars; for all these reasons, we need to tell the oil industry to go fuck themselves and implement a Manhattan Project for alternative energy.

This is something I can see Obama doing. Can you see it coming from McCain?

Actually, Joseph, neither one of them will do it...for economically and politically motivated reasons...we are truly a global economy now. And since we can't beat them in a war anymore, we'll have to grin and bear it until the powers that be decide to make us energy efficient.
