Smoke, a 39-year-old harbour seal at the New England Aquarium, is presented with a special present for her birthday Picture: SPLASH
I don’t think there are any seals, otters, sea lions in the warm waters of the Gulf.. but the photo seems oddly appropriate. A few weeks ago, around week two of this mess, a caller to the local talk radio said, if Obby REALLY wanted to do something to help, he should send an ark down to the Gulf, to collect 2 by 2, of all that will be gone.
Caller was right.
Watching the latest tragedy unfold in the Gulf this last month, all I can say is: I can’t wait for Barack Obama to become president.
This Bush guy is such a disaster, literally and figuratively. It just seems that the destruction of America he presides over is all but endless. As if one Gulf Coast disaster left to rot in the sun wasn’t enough for this president, now comes a second. What did those folks in New Orleans ever do to him? Heck, what did Americans ever do to him?
I just can’t wait any longer for the new administration to take office. They are absolutely guaranteed to handle things so much differently than the Cheney Bots in the White House who seem intent on wrecking the whole world, with their charity beginning at home.
Look at this oil spill disaster, for example.
To start with, Barack Obama would never pick a guy like Ken Salazar for the crucial environmental position of Secretary of the Interior. Of course Bush would, though. Salazar has been deeply tied to mining and ranching industries his entire career – just the kind of corporate hack Cheney would insist on for the position. In fact, Salazar was even a big supporter of his predecessor, the corrupt industry shill, Gale Norton. After all the work environmentalists put into getting Obama elected, there’s no way he’d choose someone like Salazar for this position, a guy so lame that mining association lobbyists welcomed the appointment when Bush made it. What does that tell you? Of course, Salazar has turned out – just as you’d expect – to be the “Heckuva Job, Kenny” of the oil spill. This will never happen once Obama gets in and puts a real environmentalist atop the Interior Department.
The country elected some billiard ball, off the corporate pool table…
As I see it.
