Illustration: An ex-Baby CEO?
There is some malevolent character or force threatening the U.S. today, some man, organization, or force known as “Baby”. I first learned of this force at the time of the Republican convention when the Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, led a chant “Drill, Baby, Drill”.
I now see it at work in the Gulf of Mexico. It appears that five species are threatened as well as the fishing industry and several others in Louisiana and the other Gulf States. This “Baby” seems to dislike anything to do with the word “Gulf,” as he also started a war in another one.
There is some sort of valve that could have stopped this oil, but we can all trust these people to self-regulate so, instead of making it mandatory, it is voluntary to have such a valve in oil-rigs. This one didn’t have one.
Now, I really don’t care. I mean, I’m going to be dead in a quarter century or so anyway, so what the hell. Obama has approved more offshore drilling, perhaps “Baby” will eventually pile up oil along the East Coast, especially, one conjectures, Washington, D.C. where the people who get all the lobbying money “work”.
I hear that the “Tea-Party” people are supposed to have higher IQs than average, but did not hear if they were talking about the Stanford-Binet measure or not, nor did I hear who administered the measuring instrument.
Anyway, who is Baby?
