George Bush, Clown Prince

Anticipate light and/or uneven posting through Monday on account of visiting dignitaries to the estate.

Clown In the meantime, if you're looking for a good laugh, search no futher than the inside of the NYTimes, thanks to Bumiller's report on Bush's little plan to put American taxpayers further in hock to the energy industry by insuring nuclear plants (we can afford to insure reactors but not people!) and building more refineries (ask the good folks of Philly how welcome that news should be).
"Mr. Bush also proposed giving the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission the authority to choose sites for new terminals to receive liquid natural gas from overseas."
Like for instance, from the Caspian oil-gas pipeline our industries have had their eyes on for years? Speaking to his usual canned audience of business interests, Bush went on to knock 'em dead with his schtick as a concerned leader interested in a a viable solution to the diminishing energy supply. His ideas on pulling the fangs on regulatory delays on the building of reactors were no doubt particularly well-received, especially, as Bumiller so helpfully notes:
"There has been a shift in opinion in the industry and among some environmentalists toward more nuclear power, because it is clean and far safer than at the time of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident in 1979."
That would explain the near-disaster at the Davis-Besse plant in Ohio in 2002 then, eh?

Imagine all that time spent blathering about energy independence, and not saying one word about alternate forms. I tell you, what a clown he is.
