Comparing Keystone XL Pipeline Decision To Ending Slavery Is Stupid


By Norris McDonald

Environmentalists exasperate me sometimes.  Some wealthy liberal donor environmentalists do this when they write, speak or act stupid.  Some wealthy liberal donor environmentalists are stupidly comparing President Obama's decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline to Abraham Lincoln's push to end slavery.

You're not helping your case here wealthy liberal donor environmentalists.  In fact, you're making the president laugh at you.  Me too.  Such a comparison is stupid beyond belief.  Stupid beyond 'stupid is as stupid does.'  If you're going to try to pimp race to somehow guilt trip the president, do NOT compare a pipeline to ending slavery.  I really should not have to complain about this.  But sometimes you just cannot let stupid pass.  (Wash Post, 5/10/2013)
