Rachel Maddow's report on the stranded oil rig in Alaska.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Damn she always does SUCH a good job!

By the way apparently the weather has cleared today and a salvage team was able to board her and do an assessment.  So far they have been tight lipped as to what they found.

That does not seem like a good sign.

    I always watch Rachel because she provides valuable context for important issues. She is articulate and very smart. I count on Rachel to provide in depth analysis and she always delivers.

    Funnily enough all of our "oily cheerleaders" are suspiciously quiet since this development began getting news coverage. Not a peep from our Governor nor our "Home Grown Energy Expert." Funny, huh?

    Rachel never fails to impress! She just had a segment on a conference call that was mistakenly airing a rehearsal by Shell, for the upcoming conference call... turned out to be a spoof site, and NPR thought it was real, and the story was picked up by many other sources.

    This is covered in the link you provided... she sites "void" and "sucking and blowing" sounds as evidence a breach did occur.

    I know good Satire is sometimes mistaken for "real" stories, but the lack of credible facts to the contrary is what's really bothering me.

    In the bowels of the Anchorage Times archives are gazillions of articles that were written about "double-hulled" tankers. We all know how double-hulled those tankers were. You can still smell the reminder of the Exxon Valdez.

    Say hello to the 21st century equivalent. "Crushed like a beer can," eh?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
