The President Is Trolling Me

I’ve been good. I haven’t done a “stupid and lazy” post for months.

Then the President had to go and say this:

A few months ago, I approved a proposal to consider new, limited offshore drilling under the assurance that it would be absolutely safe

Awwwwwww.

That’s just not fair! While there seems to be a mad hunt on for the real killerswhoever told Obama that drilling was safe, how detached from reality do you have to be to believe that sinking a metal pole into the ground, a mile under water, in order to rupture it and suck out the liquid could possibly be even remotely safe? It’s a marvel of engineering that we don’t get spills all the time!

This is dumber than the insurance thing. How am I not supposed to respond to that?

OK, some people think he’s just lying, for political cover.
But how on earth can he think that makes him look good? Someone told me something completely impossible and I believed it, therefore I’m not responsible.

Well, maybe he doesn’t, maybe it’s even more cynical: If I say this, they’ll believe that I’m not responsible.

This is rule by experts, people.
Learn to love it.
