Political Absolute #341: If you find yourself on the same side as Chuck Norris, you are wrong.
When President Bush recently lifted the executive ban on offshore drilling, the ball was placed completely in Congress' court to take the next move. But instead of Congress representing the majority of Americans' wishes to drill for domestic oil, they once again are favoring a minority. Pelosi justified their inactivity by blaming the president: "What we're saying is, 'Exhaust other remedies, Mr. President.' … It is the economic life of America's families, and to suggest that drilling offshore is going to make a difference to them paycheck to paycheck now is a frivolous contention."What is infuriating about this column (stupidity aside) is that it may possibly, however minutely, be taken serious by someone who will then go cast a vote in a very important election.
My first reaction to Pelosi's recent congressional energy rebellion was to say, "What an anti-American, anti-reality-based form of representation."
Norris begins with vague, unsubstantiated attacks, provides no relevant data (provides no data at all, really) to support his argument for offshore drilling, and wraps it all up with by kissing Rush Limbaugh's ass (with a nod to O'Reilly, Coulter and Beck, to boot).
Completely ridiculous. Were I an editor at Human Events, I would be embarrassed this published under my masthead, making a mockery of the entire organization (not that they don't deserve it).
