The first six and a half minutes of this video is simply excellent:
But where the video goes wrong is when it deviates into anti-Palin hysteria at about 6.3.
The kind of drilling Palin has advocated is not “deep sea.” It is on land and in shallow, more manageable waters.
The problem is this… we can’t have it both ways. We can’t say we oppose Anwar drilling and then turn a blind eye to deep sea excavation in the Gulf. When the latter is, clearly, far more dangerous.
At any rate…. I'm posting this video to my blog. WITH RESERVATIONS. The first half or so is wonderful. But… I am not about to promote the demonization of Sarah Palin. There’s no reason for me to demonize her. She is not the one taking hundreds of millions from BP to line her own pockets. And… in Alaska… Sarah had Big Oil by the balls. Not the other way around.
We might also want to get curious about who else, besides Mr. Obama, is "palling around with" British Petroleum:
[...according to The Washington Post, the reputation of some left-wing environmental groups has also been polluted by the incident.
“[T]he Nature Conservancy lists BP as one of its business partners. The Conservancy also has given BP a seat on its International Leadership Council and has accepted nearly $10 million in cash and land contributions from BP and affiliated corporations over the years,” Joe Stephens wrote for the Post May 24.
It’s not just Nature Conservancy either, the Post found $2 million in donations to Conservation International and relationships between BP and other lefty activist groups Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), Sierra Club and Audubon.]
Ooooohhhh.... so THAT explains the slow reactions of the "conservation" groups I have donated to! Infuriating!!
And maybe THIS little factoid from Mother Jones Earth News provides a glimmer into the Obama Administration's slow response???
Politico is following the BP money trail as well. And *guess who* is at the head of it? Hint: it's not Sarah Palin.
H/T to Hillary Unleashed for the video link. But, really.... jcjcd did us all a disservice... by turning it into an anti-Palin diatribe.

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."
