S.O.S. S.O.S.!

I don't know if y'all have read this transcription of the Secretary of State's speech that was just posted where he said the U.S. is going to stop importing all foreign oil, but I'm glad someone put it up there. As you might imagine, the speech caused immediate and enormous consternation just about everywhere. (The phrase "Cutting off his nose to spite his face" comes to mind!)

So the gummint's in total uproar right now. Big oil's pulling all the strings they can to get the S.O.S. to step down from his new job - or be stepped down. People are already planning to march on Washington - only they think they're gonna have to do it virtually, since high gas prices + no more oil imports = gas either non-existent or prohibitively expensive. (And how the heck does one "virtually march"? I wonder.)

No matter that the government has issued retractions and that half the news channels is saying the dude is now under a fatwa and the other half is saying that he's resigned and the other other half is saying he skipped town. Right now nobody really knows what's going on, and your guess is as good as mine as to where we'll be this time next week. What's the old saying? "May you live in interesting times." (I don't care if it's not an authentic curse. It's still a good one anyway.)

Yep. That sums it up.
