GOP Congressman: There Are 40 Barrels Of Oil In Every Tree

News

Idaho Congressman Bill Sali has been participating in the current GOPCuddle Party For Oil. But no one will listen to him even though he knows everything! In fact, he could solve the entire energy crisis in one hot minute if people paid any damn attention, because he knows that there "could be up to 40 barrels of oil" in a single tree. Ha ha, look at what you've really been hugging all these years, you filthy liberal hippies: a filthy casket of crude oil. Unless somehow Sali doesn't know what he's talking about?


Here's a bit from Idaho state rep. Byron Yankey's "blog," reporting on a conversation he had with Sali:

Congressman Sali informed us that a solution to the high price of gasoline was to make petroleum from "all those trees in our forests." Stunned by the comment, I suffered a momentary regret for not taking that high school chemistry class those many years ago. He continued by saying there '"could be up to 40 barrels of oil " in a single tree.

Think Progress notes that Sali was probably referring to cellulosic ethanol, which is "derived from the stalks and stems of plants." Maybe he was using crude oil as a metaphor for the vials or crack or whatever that cellulosic ethanol would come in. But maybe he's an idiot, too? In 2006:

“Forty percent of the mass of every tree in the forest is crude oil,” he said. Going after that, he said, “could put Idaho in the oil business for the first time.”

This is the perfect way to develop clean, responsible alternative energies: chop down as many trees as possible. If the choice is between oxygen or oil, you know where America stands.

Corey Stewart, the Minnesota transplant to Virginia who's made protecting "Confederate Heritage" a top issue in his campaign for the US Senate, accused a nosy New York Times reporter of breaking into the apartment of one of his aides. It's a terrific accusation, because while there's no evidence at all and the story makes no damn sense, that doesn't matter at all to people who'd vote for Corey Stewart. They already hate the evil media and know those nasty reporters are capable of all the depravity in the world.

Hey, remember that hilarious time when Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy got caught on tape joking that LOL, Donald Trump and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher were totally on Putin's payroll? WaPo got the goods:

"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

It's funny 'cause it's true! ALLEGEDLY. Earlier this month, Congressman Lubyanka Rohrabacher told Fox reporter Elex Michaelson that DNC hack was obviously an inside job.
