Time for a Shareholders Meeting?

By on 6.12.06 | 1:55PM

I just flew in to D.C. from the Yearly Kos convention in Vegas (expecta few columns on that soon) and got to the Washington Hilton just in time to hear "Give 'Em Hell" Harry Reid explain, in the midst of the usual banalities--"incompetence," snore. "corruption," snore--we've grown accustomed to, break out and warn that he planned to, "Take America back from Exxon Mobil. Take America back from those who would hide science." Look out Exxon Mobil! You're about to lose your fifedom! Since Reid labeled the Bush Administration, "the most oil friendly administration in the history of country," it can be presumed they will have to go as well. "We can't drill our way out of our problems," Reid said. Indeed. Now its all oohs and ahhs as the crowd watches the trailer for the Al Gore global warming movie and eats strawberries and whipped cream. Revolution not-so-lite. Very nice. More soon!
