It's either about Space Monsters or Obama's 'green energy' plan ...The environmentalist wackos in the Obama Administration "asked Congress to provide a $4 billion loan guarantee for two new nuclear reactors to be built and operated on the Gulf Coast of Texas — by Tokyo Electric Power and local partners," ha ha. Because there's nothing greener than money nuclear power, built by a scandal-plagued Japanese company now presiding over the biggest nuclear-power disaster in history. (Okay, maybe Obama's beloved "clean coal" is a teeny bit more green than nuclear fallout facilities on the Gulf of Mexico.) Anyway, let's hear it for Tokyo Electric Power! Experts say this company has been running insanely dangerous nuke plants for years, and has badly bungled the response to the earthquake damage -- in terms of safety announcements, public relations and that whole "nuclear holocaust/meltdown" thing.


Well, the Gulf of Mexico hasn't been brutalized much lately, so it will be exciting to get this Tokyo nuke company involved (thanks to the Obama Administration) with some shady Texas energy companies.

From Yahoo News:

Building nuclear power plants in the United States is a slow, tedious process in the best of times, with permits, license applications, financing, and then actual construction taking decades. Concern over Fukushima is likely to slow the process that is already at a crawl to something resembling stasis.

President Obama has stated that the Fukushima disaster has not altered his plans to expand nuclear power in the United States. Obama administration plans to shift to non fossil fueled power generation is largely dependent on nuclear power.

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
