Governor Palin’s “fruitfly moment” was a display of her utter contempt and disregard for modern science, perhaps even more emblematic than her belief that dinosaurs and humans coexisted. But John McCain has his own moments where we can see his true self:
“It has to be safe, environment, blah, blah, blah”? Translation: “I don’t really care about whether nuclear power is safe for people and the environment. It’s drill, drill, drill those nuclei.”
How does he know it’s safe?
McCain suggested nuclear power is a safe energy resource because “we’ve been sailing Navy ships around the world for 50 years with nuclear power plants on them.”
“I have news for Senator Obama, nuclear power is safe, we ought to do it now,” McCain said. (Raw Story)
50 years ago was 1958. That means since 1958 we’ve “known” nuclear power is “safe.” To which I have a three word response: Three Mile Island . And nuclear waste? My suggestion: put it in Arizona.
