Sweet Tap-Dancing Jeebus, How Is Bill Kristol Still Allowed to Talk on TV?


From Politicususa:

Fox News contributor Bill Kristol was on Special Report with Bret Baier tonight defending off shore drilling, when he made perhaps the stupidest statement of all time. He said offshore drilling is quite safe, “and very environmentally clean, except where there is a disaster like this.”

Kristol said, “Look the data’s pretty clear in general that the offshore drilling of oil has become incredibly quite safe, not perfectly safe, but compared to other ways of getting energy, quite safe compared to the mining of coal for example, and very environmentally clean, except when there is a disaster like this spill, but Exxon Valdez was much bigger.

Also safe: Russian Roulette. Until the gun goes off.

Juggling Chainsaws. Unless you count getting your hand cut off.

Driving Drunk. Until the inevitable crash.

Seriously, how the hell is this moron allowed on television.
Has he ever been right about anything?

Two More Coal Miners Die in Kentucky

From Tulsa World:

2 killed in coal mine owned by Tulsa firm

A Kentucky coal mine where two workers were killed in a roof collapse has been cited at least six times this year for using too few supporting bolts in the roof, state records show.

With the 29 miners killed at the Upper Big Branch mine 3 weeks ago, this brings the total to 31 coal miners killed so far this year.

So let's tally up the score:

Number of deaths this year per energy source: 31 11 The Occasional Bird ZERO

So, explain to me again why we can't have renewable energy? Because it's un-American?

Just Wondering
