Offshore drill baby drilling

She was for it before she was against it!

Damn those burdensome regulations that might have saved a few lives on April 20th.  Not to mention those damn bureaucrats, keeping oil companies from drilling the shit out of everywhere with reckless abandon.
So the Palinator was disheartened by the cancellation of offshore leases… well, who wouldn’t be?

“Drill baby drill” is rapidly becoming “Spin, baby, spin“. *WINK* drool, slobber

    Damn those burdensome regulations that might have saved a few lives on April 20th.

    Is there something you know of actually connecting the specific areas of interest that these regulations contemplated, and the specific failures that led to the events of April 20th?

    Do we even know yet what it was that exploded, or why it exploded? One of the links you included contains this, “… that started with an oil well blowout …” Following the link to “oil well blowout,” it says, “A blowout is the uncontrolled release of crude oil and/or natural gas from an oil well after pressure control systems have failed.  Prior to the advent of pressure control equipment in the 1920s, the uncontrolled release of oil & gas from a well whilst drilling was common and was known as an oil gusher, gusher or wild well” [emph. added].  If equipment introduced in the ’20s solved this problem, that would seem to discount the allegation that the cause of the Deepwater event was a blowout.  But I don’t really know — I haven’t heard what it was that caused this catastrophe.  BTW, I heard yesterday that a bullet factory in Oregon blew up.  I don’t laugh at catastrophe, but still, a bullet factory blowing up did make me laugh a little. (No one was hurt in that particular explosion.)

    To be fair to Sarah, Obama was against offshore drilling before he was for it before he was against it again. And now he seems to be for it again, approving new projects in the Gulf coast of all places. So much for that moratorium.

    Sarah’s magickal thinking and simplistic world view, unsurprisingly, also extend to her energy “policy”. Thankfully, she is is in no position to impose it on the rest of us. Things are bad enough as it is.

    I read the speech she gave in Hamilton where, in the introduction, she claimed she would provide insight and information on energy sourcing and policy. She then dropped the subject entirely and spoke about her life and stwuggles.

    Good morrow, all!
    Actually, Sarah Palin should be an expert on energy. Imagine all that methane from all that…well, you know…what comes out of the south end of a northbound cow…
    Any female who would be insanely jealous of Palin is just plainly insane.
    Anyone who could power a wind farm all by her lonesome is some kind of impressive.
