What the fuck is a POMBO? An African antelope, sort of like a dik-dik? A destructive storm? Whatever it is, it's bad stuff

No Arctic oil drilling? How about selling parks? / Pombo hopes threat will boost bid to tap refuge's resources

POMBO -- he's that central-African dictator, right, the one who killed and ate all his opponents?

Nope -- he's a pissant wannabe, a jerkoff congressman from an exurban cowtown called Tracy that in recent years has grown and grown and grown (like a cancer) in the California midlands, and who is one of the new breed who thinks that getting voted in means he and his pals own the country.

Check it out:

Washington -- House Resources chairman Richard Pombo is circulating a draft of a bill that would sell 15 national parks and require the National Park Service to raise millions of dollars by selling the naming rights to visitors' centers and trails.

Pombo's spokesman said the proposal, written by Pombo's House Resources Committee staff, is intended only to influence lawmakers to support an item in the budget bill that would permit oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

If drilling continues to be banned in the refuge, Pombo's staff argued, the government would have to sell parks as well as advertising space on park buses, trams and ferries to reach the level of revenues expected from oil leases sales in the Alaskan refuge.

OKAY? There's the sociopathic bullshit level -- "have to do it to reach the level of revenues EXPECTED from oil leases in ANWR."

Hey, dipshit -- just because you EXPECT that drilling for oil in a pristine preserve will make you a bunch of money, guess what?

1. You never had it and ain't gonna get it.

2. You're so slavering coming all over yourself with greed you're not even making a front for drilling in ANWR being about anything but money.

3. No one cares what you EXPECT. You may expect Gwyneth Paltrow to show up at your office and give you a blowjob, but guess what?

4. What you can really expect is to lose the next election, because you're just a disposable condom covering the diseased Dick of the Cheney-Bush-Mohammed Atta axis of oil vampires, and once they've used you to lubricate the rape, you're as replaceable as a used drill bit.

---Oh do people really think Mohammed Atta was doing it for reasons of religious fervor and not for the same pig-in-the-trough reasons as the rest? Get a brain. If Bush et al made it clear that it was ONLY about WHO gets the loot, we, who all know it won't be us, would have to say, "Well fuck him and his privileged Little Lord Fauntleroy bullshit."

So they decided it would be more useful to say it's a religious holy war. Get all the people who believe in invisible friends who strike down anyone who laughs at them into the fray.

Meanwhile, back in Pombo-land

"The drums! It's the DRUMS!! THey say: 'Drill for oil! Make money! Sell the country to the people who can make me rich! It's the drums that make me do it.' "

Right, those old Gene Krupa 78's pushed him over the edge.

Summing it up -- DICK POMBO is the clear winner of this week's award for "MOST BLATANT WASTE OF HUMAN PROTOPLASM"
