A furiously venom-filled John McCain angrily admitted to this blogger in a just-finished phone interview that he has been in a state of unstoppable rage that has kept him terminally pissed off at the United States of America ever since we chose to end the Vietnam war. “You’re damn right I am, you little jerk,” he said.
Before I could even respond he exploded again like Yosemite Sam. “You’re ALL a bunch of little jerks!” he screeched out to me on my VOIP line,” all you word happy blah-blah-bloogers – especially you environmentalists.” He spat out the word as if talking about a pedophile, but I could sense he was using air quotes at the other end.

What if the same Republicans who ran both of George Bush’s campaigns and who are now in charge of John McCain’s campaign were working for the Democrats – ANY Democrat – and running against John McCain as the opposing candidate? What kind of press releases, surrogate talking points and commercials would we be seeing then? Continue reading
As new President Barack Obama said on Wednesday,
“The question isn’t whether you’re better off than you were four years ago, the question is whether you’re better off than you were four weeks ago.”
Unless you are in the repo, liquor or foreclosure business the answer is no.
“President Barack Obama” you ask? Isn’t that pushing the presumptuous envelope a mite? Perhaps you’re thinking, “arrogance much?”
Not really. It’s my job to be ahead of the curve and deal with what’s coming next. Continue reading
THEM RIGS IS AS SAFE AS WALL STREET ITSELF, GOSH DARN IT
Among the blatant BS that passes for talking points by pro-carbon advocates for offshore drilling like HockeyPuck Palin herself, is that drilling today employs such modern, clean, safe technology that it’s not fair to say there’s any danger of spills like the one that ruined Santa Barbara’s beaches back in the day.
But what these truth-deprived oil-hungry energy experts don’t want you to think about is accidents that modern technology doesn’t mean jack squat to. Damaging oil spills like the “accident” that happened in San Francisco Bay last year, or the one where the Captain of the Exxon Valdez crashed his tanker into the rocks up there in Russia’s next door neighbor – Alaska (and that was even before texting!)
Just last month we had another perfect example of just how safe from oil spills we all are here in the modern super-secure era we live in. Continue reading
If you know the Creative Greenius then you know how much I like to laugh and how I crave a clever comedy.
From The Daily Show to 30 Rock to The Simpsons to anything Albert or James L. Brooks do, I like me some laughs.
In fact I need me some laughs – especially when so much of what I learn every day about climate change and how much worse it gets with each passing 24 hours adds up to us being as doomed as doomed can be.
But thank God for John Maverick McCain, who refuses to be worried about the serious facts and goes for the funny bone every chance he gets.
In a world of bad news and inconvenient truths the good old Straight Talk Express is still chugging along like a coal-fired comedy choo-choo making us all laugh out loud. Continue reading
