Mine Safety? Nah.

By Cassandra D

How ironic to hear that Bush has appointed Richard Stickler to head the federal mine safety agency, despite the Senate's having rejected him twice in two months for putting "industry interests ahead of safety concerns." (Reuters)

Why ironic? Because we also learn that this morning we had the latest mine accident fatality, this time in a Pennsylvania coal mine.

Yeah, it's rain on your wedding day. Or a free ride, when your husband just got killed in a mine accident.

Or like going down on him in a theatre.

We put the pedophiles in charge of our children and robbers are running our banks. Isn't America great?!

Well, I think #43 really thinks his brain's shifted two gears higher than everybody else. His alter-schizo God voice is probably saying something like this:
"What better person to chair the caucus on exploited children than a guy who's spent his adult life learning every which way they can be exploited? Take your time...heh heh, you'll see the intellectigence in a minute."
