And Don’t Forget the “OTHER” Royal Wedding

The world will be glued to the Royal Wedding tonight and tomorrow. Less well known — but with far greater consequences — is the Other Royal Wedding. That would be, of course, the R-OIL wedding — the marriage of the Republican Party and the Oil Industry.

Here’s the invitation:

“You are cordially invited to the R-OIL Wedding. Please join Special Guest Speaker John Boehner in celebrating the sacred and lasting union between the Republican Party and Big Oil. In lieu of gifts, please send corporate tax breaks at the expense of middle class Americans.”

Tens of billions of dollars in tax subsidies to the oil industry, oil speculators driving up the price of gasoline — Big Oil and the GOP get married and America gets fucked.

It's a polyandrous union. The Rushpubliscum slut also married private prison operators, Big Pharma, big coal, defense contractors, etc.

and here I thought it was Diane Feinstein who was married to defense contractors or was it Jack Murtha?
Or maybe it was Big Labor or the Bar Association.
I can never quite get that quite right,it's so transparent it's difficult to see sometimes.

You may have forgotten that Halliburton and Kellogg, Brown and Root got the bulk of the defense contracts and it was no bid!

Need I remind you who they are married too?

Don't pound sand, Erik. Or, in the case of lisa, die-cast concrete.

Like you said, Tom, but at least they've got plenty of lube.

Suzan: Dang, I missed it.

JR: Boehner is pretty promiscuous even by Republican slut standards.

Erik: Yup, that's another marriage.
