Change We Can Disbelieve 1

Sarcasm Warning on!

We have two oilmen in the White House, George Bush and Dick Cheney.  We see what a mess their energy policy has made for most people (except for oilmen).

What we need now is an oilwoman in the White House to straighten things out. We have seen how people intimately connected to profiting from oil sales can think strategically about energy policy.

Maybe this is like the old  hangover remedy. More of the hair of the dog that bit you.

Sarcasm Warning Off!

Sure she stood up to the oil companies.  Her complaint was that Alaska wasn’t getting enough of the take from the oil profits and the oil companies weren’t taking oil out of the ground  fast enough.

Sarcasm Warning on!

It’s like a drug street dealer standing up to the drug supplier because there wasn’t  enough drugs to push and the cut to the street dealer wasn’t big enough. In a Bush/McCain administration this would be a recommendation for a position of Drug Czar.

In this case the Governor is pushing oil. She might be put in charge of energy policy.

Sarcasm Warning Off!

It is clear that Barack Obama was right.  John McCain just doesn’t get it.

These kinds of discoveries are what makes it so important for this country to support scientific research.  Rather than the current administration who seems to be afraid of science, we need one that recognizes value when it sees it.

I’d much prefer to be an optimist about our future.  We have to always keep in mind that just because we do not know today how we will solve a problem does not mean that we will never know how to solve that problem.  We always need to keep looking for solutions.
