bad things come in 2's today
travesties are coming in 2's this morning, and i'm going to offer these two tidbits as eloquent proof that our party political system is so far broken and gone that there is no salvaging it.
first, from the left hand side of the partisan political aisle, we have what would otherwise be the most powerful man in the world accepting part-time attention to the deepwater horizon crisis from his chosen crisis chief. (i would not lie about this--read about it here).
next, from the right hand side of the partisan political aisle, we have the guy next in line to assume the house energy and commerce committee chairmanship apologizing to the chairman of british petroleum that his firm might be held financially accountable for the colossal mess they have created. (i would not lie about this one, either--read up on it here).
so one is our president, the other is soon to become one of the most powerful legislators in issues related to oil drilling. one is just fine without having any full-time person in charge of mitigating this disaster, while the other is already issuing apologies for the possibility there might be any accountability for fouling the entire gulf of mexico.
you tell me, if you are either a D or an R, if you can in ANY way condone or explain this sort of nonsense. i'll tell you, if you are either a D or an R, that YOU are the ultimate source of this problem. your party politics prop up nonsense like this, and ensure the perpetrators remain beyond accountability.
and that is WRONG
