Gov. Bush Talks to His Fairy Godmother

After unleashing Chang, and speaking to his Fairy Godmother, Jeb! has done one spectacular flip-flop on his position on drilling for oil off Florida's west coast.

When he was trying to get elected he was against it. But now that he doesn't have to worry about that anymore, he's supporting it.

Environmentalists, Democrats and Republican U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez
of Florida staunchly oppose the bill, which would allow oil and gas
drilling 125 miles from Florida waters. They continue to insist that a
strong political front in Florida can stop all new drilling in the
eastern Gulf.

"Sure they do," Bush said, deriding their position. "But that's great.
I've talked to the fairy godmother about it."

I wonder if his Fairy Godmother knows much about cleaning up oil spills, or revitalizing a tourism-based economy or a fishing industry that has collapsed due to oil spills?

    I've looked up the numbers on the "Lease Sale 181 Area" deposits, and if you do the math it works out to ~20 days worth of natural gas and 9 days worth of oil. Based on 2004 usage data, of course.

    JEB!™ is an ass. So's his brother. And for that matter, so is CHANG!
