Oil Leaks

Two recent news developments from over the weekend are, well, in the news: one is the revelation that President Bush secretly authorized electronic surveillance on American citizens without going through the courts, and the House approved oil drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge.

What hasn't been discussed is the obvious link between these two news stories. Now, the Prez is pretty pissed off that his double super secret program has been released and he now actually has to defend his decision to spy on Americans, and he's called the leaking of this information a "shameful act." On the other hand, I think it's safe to say he's pretty happy about the drilling in the ANWR, supposedly because it will reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Unbelievers would say it's because he wants to give his friends the American oil companies a boost. But thanks to a Gurgly exclusive, I know the real reason the Prez is so happy about the very, very deep holes soon to be drilled Way Up North: it's because he's going to throw the leaker down one of the holes and close it up with a giant drain plug. Heh-heh. That'll solve his little plumbing problem. Heh-heh.
