Gov. Perdue used to be against off-shore drilling for North Carolina "but in recent months has said that it appears inevitable" (N&O).
She wants more experts to advise her. Yeah, like those experts are gonna pull on their hip-waders and clean up the only thing that's absolutely inevitable ... an accident, a careless screw-up, a failure to focus on what's valuable rather than on what's profitable.
And Senator Kay Hagan? The Greensboro News&Record's Mark Binker asked her directly about the lessons of Louisiana, and only pure mush came out of Hagan's mouth. She's obviously in the "drill, baby, drill" choir, only she's now singing the chorus as softly as possible, trying to be inconspicuous in her lack of leadership as an oily environmental nightmare insinuates itself into every inlet, marsh, and wetland of the Louisiana coast.
The British Petroleum Blob has only begun its reign of terror. Still to come ... the coasts of Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida ... and, oh yeah, TEXAS!
