Whitewater II

This is my obligatory "Tommy, you're doing a heck of a job" post. Or more appropriately, "Tommy, keep paddling."

Jake reports, I repeat:
Though his agency was charged with coordinating the federal response to the major oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Department of the Interior chief of staff Tom Strickland was in the Grand Canyon with his wife last week participating in activities that included white-water rafting, ABC News has learned.
But not to worry, it was official business. With Tommy's wife along officially:
Other leaders of the Interior Department were focused on the Gulf, joined by other agencies and literally thousands of other employees. But Strickland’s participation in a trip that administration officials insisted was “work-focused” raised eyebrows among other Obama administration officials and even within even his own department, sources told ABC News.
"Eight Days in April," by Paul Krugman, has a new chapter, Whitewater II.

Officially available in November.

  1. He was just checking to make sure the oil hadn't reached the Colorado river.

  2. It's all a communications snafu. Barack turned to Strickland and said, "No, I can't contain an environmental disaster, canoe?"

    Or so Tom heard.

  3. So new?

    Stop lowering the boom in the bay; lower it in the Interior Department. In fact, encircle DC. There's enough slick there to fuel America for centuries.

  4. Since a Democrat is in charge, you won't see MSM hammering them like they did Bush re: Katrina...

    Nothing to see here, move along..

  5. And once the boom has been set, a controlled burn...

  6. AH, yes Rorschach. Obama ass ash will keep planes grounded but it will be worth it.
