Jonah Goldberg Upset That Ecological Apocalypse Could Undermine Political Support For Offshore Drilling

News

With this insane freaking oil rig down there shitting out all of the world's oilat a pace that could reach six million gallons a day -- the Exxon Valdez spill was 11 million gallons, total -- destroying the entire Gulf Coast (again, but permanently) and sending price shocks throughout the global economy for a while, the National Review's in-house gimp Jonah Goldberg is getting all hot and bothered. Not so much about all that economic/environmental bunk -- whatever. It's that now Jonah will have to listen to these liberal wieners exploit this Actual Armageddon for their gay political gain, ugh.


Obviously, if I thought the oil-rig disaster was a calamity on Tuesday, I think it even more of one now. And if it really does take three months to stop the leak, the environmental catastrophe could be a mortal wound to offshore oil drilling, particularly the deep-water stuff. Three months of oil-covered birds leading the nightly newscasts. Three months of politicians hearing from their justifiably fearful constituents. Three months of environmentalists saying "we told you so."

If it doesn't take three months, if they get this thing fixed sooner rather than later, it'll still be awful and critics of offshore drilling will still have ample ammo. But it's worth noting that unless you're going to abandon oil altogether, the case for offshore drilling — and domestic drilling generally — still has a lot of merit, even on environmental terms. Oil tankers are still way more dangerous than oil rigs. Thousands of tankers traversing the oceans raises the risks of spills considerably more than rigs close to shore.

(Hmm. Whatever oil we would get from increased drilling in America would have no effect on the number of oil tankers traversing the oceans, except to maybe increase them, because again GLOBAL OIL COMPANIES SELL TO THE HIGHEST GLOBAL BIDDER BECAUSE THEY ARE PROFIT-DRIVEN CORPORATIONS SELLING OIL, GLOBALLY.)

And yet, the ENVIRONAZIS.

Stupid liberal treefuckers and their liberal media showing liberal ducks covered in oil, which will literally happen to every duck and other animal in the region.

According to Rachel Campos Duffy, former reality TV personality and current Fox News personality, migrant baby jails are better than the "Projects". And she totally knows this for fact because she has a "black friend" who told her so. This totally mysterious black friend enlightened her on the horrors faced by black people in black places, which makes it perfectly okay for Trumpco to lock away those "privileged" brown babies. Also, stop being mean to her for spewing that hot garbage on the Laura Ingraham (who believes baby jails are like "Summer Camp") show, because it's not fair that you refuse to believe she has a black friend.
