Getting bilked? What did you expect?

The Daily Kos reports that the GOP is getting a little nervous about all the oil companies reporting massive profits in the wake of skyrocketing energy prices. As if the Republicans didn’t have enough problems to deal with, now everyone will start putting two and two together, and presuming the Iraq War was all about lining oil company pockets.

What did they expect?

When you hire a guy, former CEO of a big company, to be your right hand man, and then your new “business” hands no-bid contracts to the old company to reconstruct a country you decided to pummel, folks ARE going to put those facts together.

Shit. Even the United Nations (dumb and crooked as they may be some time) are getting a clue.


Of course oil companies are now facing a grilling from Congress (as if that is going to get anywhere).
