Let the Blaming Begin

We're already hearing about the poor safety record at the mine where 12 men died, and rightly so. It's a horrible tragedy. But in an editorial, the Washington Post has the nerve to say that perhaps the culture of the Mine Safety and Health Administration has changed in the past six years (code: it's Bush's fault). There is no evidence that this is the case; even that part of the editorial was full of "mights". I don't know why I even read the Post anymore, other than that I "might" have some sort of obsession to know what the MSM is up to.

Hi Heather,
I had a commenter on my post about the mining tragedy pretty much blame Bush. It's getting really ridiculous when everything becomes the President's fault. What about the responsibility of the company, it's owner, the MSHA?

BTW, thank you for the link. I saw it through Technorati. I am assuming you came my way via Bookworm Room? I love her blog!
