All Together Now: “Spill, Baby, Spill!”

This happens whenever I doze while listening to Morning Edition. I had this crazy dream. All those patriotic delegates at the Republican National Convention - the smiling mob who roared at Sarah Palin’s self-congratulation about pit bulls and lipstick – every one of them flew to Louisiana on their own dime. BP and the Chamber of Commerce didn’t pay a penny. And they were mucking around in the swamps with baggies and soda straws, prepared to siphon oil off sick birds. And Rudy Giuliani was cheering them on: “Spill, baby, spill.”

I’m probably not the only bird-lover having this dream. Here’s the Huffington Post ’s take on the revised mantra.

    You know what McCain and Obama said during the campaign, “Drill, baby, drill.”

    BOTH of our crooked major party candidates advocated more off-shore drilling during the 2008 campaign. So don’t give Obama a pass on this one. He’s every bit as much to blame, and unlike Palin, he’s the one in power, so he’s the one to whom we should target our wrath.
