Is it just me still thinking like a right-wing conspiracy nut or does this oil rig explosion still sound a little too convenient? If I recall this time line correctly, it went like this:

-Early Fall 2008 Obama says there is no way he will drill for oil while criticizing the Republicans for wanting to.
-Early Spring 2010 Angry Americans threaten to “vote out” incumbents, removing the Democratic stronghold on House, Senate and Majority positions.
-Mid-Spring 2010 Obama says we should drill after all (fear has a way of moving people, foundering has a way of making you look good to the opposition).
-Late Spring 2010 An oil well explodes off the coast of Louisiana and has yet to be taken care of, leading to not only our “worst environmental disaster” but to a moratorium on any future drilling.

Maybe I am a nut. Maybe the nut who wrote “Report from Iron Mountain” was right. (If you’ve not read it (Google it), please do and let me know it is not science fiction). If you have read it, please let me know it is not science fiction. I used to think it was up until about January 20, 2009.
