Found, yet again, on the editorial page of today's paper:
"...[I]t's hard to think of a more dramatic example of foreign oil dependency than BP and the great Gulf of Mexico disaster."
The tangled words of uber-sinister Leftie Dan Carpenter, of course, the same bold, brave fellow who boasts of mouse-trapping a woman from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce: when she decried cap-and-trade for the dire effect it would have on everyone's energy bills, then mentioned nuclear power as a possible alternative to conventional sources were it not for the huge cost of building 'em, clever Dan told her, "Talk about electric bills." Then, he tells us, she changed the subject.
Yeah, bet she did, havin' realized you're an ijit: nuke plants cost like bejeezus because of the regulatory burdens and huge legal expense of dealing with addlepated lawsuits from the freeze-in-mud-huts-in-the-dark crowd. It's a very similar can'o'worms to the one that cap & trade would open up -- and it all exposes your agenda, Dan: you'd love to see everyone freeze in the dark...well, everyone except for you and the rest of the ruling elite of which you believe yourself to be a part.
Don't count on it. There's plenty of room under the bus and they don't even slow down for a local newspaper columnist. When presshack lobbyists from the U. S. Chamber of Commerce have given up on you, you have reached a whole new level of irrelevance.
