The guest post from alphabitch of awesome blog f*cking c*nts has been delayed until tomorrow.
In the meantime, has anyone else noticed that whenever someone comes up with a perfectly good idea to save energy, some (usually republican) buzzkill points out that all by itself, this perfectly good idea can’t completely and utterly annihilate the energy crisis. The latest in this string is Obama’s comment that people could save gas by keeping their tires inflated, an idea ridiculed by the McCain campaign (despite estimates that correct tire pressure and regular maintenance could have an immediate effect on gas consumption much greater than this offshore drilling in 10 years bullshit.)
But that’s not the point. Solving the energy crisis does not require a single, silver-bullet solution. Hundreds of millions of people applying a proliferation of modest energy saving techniques can add up to an enormous impact.
Perhaps these critical assholes are just desperately employing whatever rhetorical bullshit they can think of in a throw-everything-at-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks strategy to discredit Barrack “the-second-coming-of-christ” Obama. But I think there’s a simpler explanation.
Republicans can’t add.
