A Liberal Rant Against Oil

You think radical Islam is behind the London terror attacks?

Well, Froma Harrop has that peculiar insight that only high-minded leftists have and she oh-so-bravely shares it with us on the editorial page of the Seattle Times. You see, the real evil is that wicked, smelly black stuff we use in our cars and machinery... aided, of course, by a Republican administration that cares more about rich oil barons than the other folks of the world.

Reading this editorial is an enlightening experience, to be sure; but not in the way Ms. Harrop desires. Rather, it reveals how obscurantist and illogical liberals are willing to be (in public, no less!) in mouthing the same old platitudes.
