Conservative media defend BP against “shakedowns,” “show trials,” and environmentalists at least 62 times « The Fifth Column
The Republicans, rather their 'Conservative' media echo chamber, are proving themselves to be like the Price Regent in the Blackadder series, oblivious to the most obvious of things that concern the rest of us. After years of 'riding shotgun' in the gold-plated National Security stretch-Hummer whilst regarding environmental concerns as so much political road-kill, Conservatives are failing to adapt to a 'New Reality' on the political ground. On 4.20.10 Americans suddenly woke up to another enemy attacking our shores and 'National Security' and the 'Environment' suddenly converged. Tone deaf conservatives need to park the Hummer and get out and walk. This is a new war and a new Reality.
