Nope, Nothing Suspicious Here

Baby Doc, in his newfound oil-addict-in-recovery persona, has suddenly discovered that alternative fuels are "sexy". So he's been trotting his retarded little self around the country, trying to talk the big talk about reducing dependence on foreign oil, spending research dollars on newkuler energy, yada yada yada.

But, like everything else with the Gang That Couldn't Think Straight, his photo-op team fucked up -- royally -- when they booked The Empty Sleevejob into the National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden, Colorado. (BTW and not coincidentally, this is also home to the capitalist-pig union-busting race-baiting rightwing-Repugnican-supporting bad-beer-brewing Coors Brewery.)

But apparently someone didn't do his homework: It was discovered that the US Department of Energy just this month -- and after the State of Disunion speech -- cut so much from the lab's funding that they had to lay off workers.

Whoops. That doesn't really send the right message, does it? More than a bit embarrassing for an administration that is going around mouthing empty platitudes about researching alternative fuels. Jeez, what to do?

The only thing possible was cough up the money and restore the jobs. Now Baby Doc's speech touting alternative and renewable energy won't look so much like the meaningless talking-suit gesture that it really is. And of course now the prevaricating little fucker is saying that the budget was originally cut due to a "mix-up", we didn't mean it, no not you, blah blah blah.

Yeah, just like those other mix-ups that cut VA health care funding, Pell Grants, food stamps, Medicaid, etc etc etc. In fact, everything except the funding for the defense contractors like Halliburton, et al. was cut due to those same pesky and inconvenient mix-ups.

He is sooooooo amazingly stupid. The hot gas goes in his ears & out his mouth, and the mind, such as it is, never gets involved.
