This week in irony

Today's protest outside the White House saw thousands upset over the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline project, which would send oil derived from tar sands in Canada to Texas and Louisiana to be refined. The pipeline would create thousands of new American jobs and would cut the amount of oil we buy from the Arab world.

Of course, that does not sit well with radical environmentalists and amateur anarchists. A group of angry college students left their college in Vermont and traveled by oil-guzzling bus to Washington to voice their displeasure. They then burned even more oil to go home. It's OK though, because oil burned during good intentions doesn't hurt the environment.
