A Message to Sarah Palin: Clean Baby Clean!

Posted by politicalmonkey2010 on May 2, 2010

It occurs to me that I can think of no position that Sarah Palin takes that I agree with…and this week with the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, I waited…and waited..to hear those famous words from the person who made them so famous…”drill baby drill” compliments of Sarah Palin.   She was suspiciously quiet, until she finally broker her silence.  From her Facebook page:

“In the coming days, there will be hearings to discover the cause of the explosion and the subsequent leak. Actions will be taken to increase oversight to prevent future accidents. Government can and must play an appropriate role here.”  Gee whiz Sarah, does that mean government will take over oil drilling?  Isn’t that too much government?

Then of course she goes onto say…”All responsible energy development must be accompanied by strict oversight, but even with the strictest oversight in the world, accidents still happen. No human endeavor is ever without risk – whether it’s sending a man to the moon or extracting the necessary resources to fuel our civilization. I repeat the slogan “drill here, drill now” not out of naiveté or disregard for the tragic consequences of oil spills”

Does anybody remember the vice presidential debate,  where Palin told Joe Biden, “You even called drilling — safe, environmentally-friendly drilling offshore — as raping the outer continental shelf. There — with new technology, with tiny footprints even on land, it is safe to drill and we need to do more of that.”

It’s a pretty big fucking footprint Sarah!  Sorta massive Yeti like in nature.

The of course this spill can’t be about the environment, it has to be about Sarah doesn’t it?  She continues and says in her Facebook page:

“as Governor of Alaska when my administration ramped up oversight of the oil industry and created a petroleum-systems-integrity office to monitor our oil and gas infrastructure for potential environmental risks. I took a lot of heat for the stand I took “against the oil industry” (which is how political adversaries labeled my actions). But we took tough action because there was proof of some improper maintenance of oil infrastructure which I believed was unacceptable. We instituted new oversight and held British Petroleum (BP) financially accountable for poor maintenance practices. We also filed a Friend-of-the-Court brief against Exxon’s interests for its decades-old responsibility to compensate Alaskans affected by the Valdez spill, and I took other actions “against” the industry which ultimately helped hold it accountable.”

Mmmm, that’s not exactly true is it Sarah?  I quote “That is the most cockamamie bullshit,” said Dave Oesting of Anchorage, lead plaintiff attorney in the private litigants’ civil case against Exxon and its successor, Exxon Mobil Corp. “She didn’t have a damn thing to do with it, and she didn’t know what it was about.”

Once again Sarah has rewritten the facts to suit her purpose.

If you want to be sure you are on the right side of an argument, logically, spiritually, emotionally, the surest way is to be on the opposite side of Sarah Palin.

    Just wait for her to figure out…oh wait, she can’t figure anything out for herself….just wait for her conservative pundit buddies to figure out a way to blame Obama for all this. She will then start parroting that view.
