Foreign Policy examines the patently absurd things being said about the oil spill. I'm surprised they just stopped at 4 pages.
They rightly begin their examination with the credibility-challenged Sarah "Media Hate Me" Palin, Rush "Natural Oil Spill" Limbaugh, Brit "Where's the Oil" Hume, and Michael "Heckuva Job" Brown. I wonder where my conservative friends are on these utopian, intellectually inconsistent and dishonest exclamations on the part of their representative establishment?
Because I know I can defend Obama's "absurdities" on an intellectual (if not emotional) level. Hell, I can even point out the few accuracies in Castro's lunacy.
But Palin laying this at the feet of the "greenies?" Seriously? It would be laughable if I didn't hear those words repeated right back at me from formerly-conservative family and friends who are content to follow these lemmings off ever higher cliffs.
Every time I feel frustrated with Obama, I remember what our alternative could be. I remember that Obama represents reality-based and actual, if limited, change from their policies, which are so full of demonstrable fail at this point I cannot believe their careers have not collapsed under the weight of their cognitive dissonance.
