It’s been a long week, with a lot going on, and this blogger is plum tuckered out.
So, that being said, let’s do a link post, and see what’s been going on that you might have missed:
So, a guy had the guts to basically tell President Bush that he should be ashamed of himself. Even if it’s the first time it’s happened, I thought the last paragraph was more telling:
Bush hardly won him over, though. “I didn’t care about his response,” Taylor said. “I wanted to say what I wanted to say and I wanted him to know that despite being in a room with a thousand people who love him . . . there are plenty of people out there who don’t agree with him in any way, shape or form.”
Seems like the classic bully to me—wanting to put others down to somehow make himself feel better/bigger.
Surely you’ve heard this guy on the radio. He’s bought all this advertisement to suggest that if we only would build a bunch of windmills in the midwest, we could save Natural Gas for cars instead of electricity and we’d be free of foreign oil.
Two things strike me interesting here:
- Isn’t the midwest also the land of tornadoes? Wouldn’t we be constantly having to rebuild these things (after a massive spike in electricity output, to be sure)!
- Rarely does a man with money do something that won’t benefit him financially—especially if he’s making so big an investment in ads.
Next week, perhaps it’s time for an Election 2008 series, as well as getting the rest of the little MInTheGap Blog Network up and running.
