I happened to be in Palm Springs, CA on Earth Day. And who should be visiting the area but the patriarchal patron of the petroleum planet polluting pirates in person, G Dubya himself. His championing the cause of cleansing our planet was like Jeffrey Dahmer lecturing on the benefits of a vegetarian diet.
Everyone down there, including those with extensive Petroleum Portfolios but yet retaining old Republican values, recognized the hypocrisy. The jokes ran rampant throughout the area, the theme being: The art of back-peddling forward to the mid-term and election.
