Keep on the firing line

"Hey Sally, did you hear that Gov. Rick Perry of Texas said that the accident where that oil rig broke and is spilling thousands of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico was an act of God?"

"No he didn't. No one could be that stupid."
"No shit. He really said it. And you know what else? George Will said that wind turbines would kill more birds than the oil spill down there will."

"Boy oh boy, if all that is true then either God hates the Gulf region or conservatives are some fucking stupid shortsighted people who have no idea what the phrase 'act of God' means and who will do anything to keep sustainable energy from ever reaching the market. Hey Betty, does your family still have those 'Drill baby drill' and' McCain/Palin' stickers on the Hummer your dad drives?"

"Fuck off Timmy."

Goes does not like the Gulf of Mexico. Or Iceland. Or Jews. Or women. Or black people. Or Haiti. Or Indonesia. Or poor people. Or people that buy Toyotas. Or people that buy space heaters. Or any place or person affected by natural disaster or the stupidity of other people. He only likes a small handful of white men with good hair, like Rick Perry.

Wait a minute, you don't mean that maybe this was God's way of telling us that offshore drilling isn't such a good idea after all?

Well said CDP.

If you look at Mike Church's Twitter, he jests that the Obama admin is dragging their heels because Barack doesn't like white birds.
