Jonah Goldberg's troubled mind...

Is Jonah Goldberg troubled by BP's misinformation and media censorship? Is he troubled by the thousands of Gulf Coast fishermen who have lost their ability to provide for their families? Is he worried about the clean-up workers who are suffering health problems because they haven't been issued proper protective gear? Is he setting up an office pool to help his fellow Americans who have been impacted by the worst environmental disaster in U.S history? Is he upset that it's going to take years to clean up the Louisiana marshes? Is he anxious because there is a possibility the relief well might not stop the oil from gushing out even longer and doing even more damage?

Well not exactly. You see Jonah is a conservative and a Republican. He's not going gonna let those evil liberal fascists talk about all the carcinogens and toxins suffocating the locals to divert attention from the real threat:

After the Exxon Valdez spill, people from some very far-flung parts of the United States showed up with hat-in-hand to get "compensated." One Alaskan relative of mine told how he left a meeting in disgust when some Floridians came rattling their tin cups.

I have no desire to disparage anybody who's seeking legitimate compensation. But I have a very strong desire to disparage folks who are going to make some underserved coin from the Gulf spill.
Seriously! Jonah Goldberg is worried about all the Alaskans that are speeding down to Florida right now rattling their tin cups!

Republicans 2010! Stop the Fraud!
