I think Bill Maher speaks for most of us today when he says, “Every asshole who ever chanted ‘Drill Baby Drill’ should have to report to the Gulf Coast today for cleanup duty.”
Oh, and let me just add: f*** you Sarah Palin!
Finally, just remember, if “drill baby drill” (or should we call it “spill baby spill?”) afficionados like Bob McDonnell gets his way, the following photos could be coming to the Virginia coastline sometime in coming years. Let’s all tell him, “no thank you!”
UPDATE: According to Reuters, “White House says no offshore drilling will be allowed in new areas until review of oil spill off La. coast.” Great, but how about offshore drilling in current areas using similar types of drilling equipment and techniques, such as failing to use acoustic valves as part of blowout preventers, as is done in other parts of the world? Oh, and how about we make getting off of oil our #1 priority? Until we do, disasters like this will happen again and again. Needless to say, that is completely unacceptable.
