    the Keystone pipeline, it would send a strong message to Putin.  No, I'm not making this up.  The Ed Show had clips of all the Fox talking heads saying the same thing (I'm shocked).

    Fox logic is that if a Canadian oil company can move their oil through America to the Gulf, it will help America!!!  So Fox is putting Canada's interests above America's.

    •  Makes a certain amount of sense, though. (0+ / 0-)

      Putin really doesn't have to worry that much about world opinion or crashing stock markets or plunging rubles or the like so long as the Soviets have a shitpile of oil, which they do.

      Keystone won't change that fact in the least, but it will create more markets for the tar sands oil than they have now, and that will impact global market prices.

      Didn't say it was compelling, just that it makes a certain amount of sense.
