The ongoing BP oil leak has alternately been described as “Obama’s Katrina” or “Obama’s Iranian Hostage Crisis” by various media outlets and pundits; both metaphors are grossly inaccurate and uninformed (and could each generate more words than I care to share here).
Now we’ve actually begun hearing calls from consternatives for the president to “do something” about the developing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Which is amazing, when you think about it: Many consternatives have compared Obama to Hitler simply for pursuing health care reform, yet some now seem to be suggesting the federal government seize control of a private enterprise for the good of the country?
Looking to cement your Nazi comparisons, are you, consternatives? Or would you (suddenly and inexplicably) approve of a government takeover of a major corporation? Make up your fucking minds, people. Better yet, shut your mouths. More pollutants are coming out of them than from that gaping hole at the bottom of the gulf.
