The Gulf “spill” has us paying for many things–one of which is Big Dick Cheney’s view that conservation is for sissies, and his secret sitdown, right after BushCo’s coup, with the top dogs in the energy cartel, and all that happened afterward; and so we’re also paying for the media’s acquiescence in that early crime (among scores of others, including BushCo’s coup).
So where has Dick been since the rig exploded? He’s been uncharacteristically reserved–very different from his usual mouthing off, like a Mafia kingpin daring the authorities to try and nail him. Even with Obama in the White House, and Eric Holder (therefore) wearing his blindfold and earplugs, Cheney doesn’t seem to feel it would be wise to say a word in public.
Could it be because his gang, Halliburton, was BP’s accomplice in this crime for which there aren’t sufficient words?
