Bush Admin Appoints Exxon’s Lee Raymond To Solve America’s Energy Crisis
You really have to hand it to the Jon Stewart wannabees within the Bush cabal -- their version of The Onion may not be quite as funny as the work of the folks who parody them, but they sure do try hard. Via GroovyGreen:
Not only will ExxonMobil announce third-quarter profits tomorrow, they’ve also got to be smiling from ear-to-ear about the recent appointment of former ExxonMobil CEO Lee Raymond to lead an influential study to develop policy solutions to America’s energy crisis! How ironic is that? The genius behind this appointment is energy secretary Samuel Bodman — another Bush standout with obvious ties to Big Oil.
It is hard to imagine other outrages equally offensive. I mean, to equal this move, they would have to do something as stupid as putting Mark Foley in charge of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. Or sending Rush Limbaugh out to chastise Michael J. Fox about his use of medication. Or having Gerorge Bush proclaim a "Character Counts Week."
But who would be gullible enought to believe any of those things would happen?
