On “Real Time” this week, Bill Maher took on conservatives for dismissing the Gulf oil spill and the climate change movement. “Rick Perry says it was an act of God. I think it was an act of Dick Cheney,” Maher said, referring to the Bush administration’s energy task force. “And it shows the disastrous results of having lobbyists write laws.”
Later in the program, he slammed Rush Limbaugh for dismissing the oil spill as “natural.” Here’s Limbaugh’s quote about the oil spill “The ocean will take care of this. It’s as natural [the oil] as the ocean water is.”
That’s right, a petrochemical stew is very natural to wetlands. You know what, you dipshit? Mercury’s natural too — you don’t put it in your Cheerios.
