Natural gas drilling spreads STD among ‘womenfolk’

Yes, I am sure that the rough women of Pennsylvania mount the drilling rigs to get their groove on. Lord knows what they did before the rigs arrived. Now of course our dearly elected representative did not mean that. But let’s reflect on something else implied here. If instead of gas rigs and support trucks and roads being built in this same location, we were building wind towers and bringing in the same support trucks and roads, would the incidence of STDs be lower? Because that’s exactly the implication behind this moronic statement.

I never thought I would hear that. What’s next, does global warming itself cause STDs? Too late.  It’s even too late for the converse hypothesis.

    That guy is toast. He should be thanked for his candor.

    This reminds me of the same sort of reasoning in Freakonomics, where in this situation would trace the problem to the founder of Red Roof Inn, who liked to drive his gas guzzler to a motel that had clean sheets and unlimited local phone calls.

    Our friend Jeff Grove did not pick this one up, and I e-mailed him a link to your page.

    I expect Speedmaster to find a video of this guy disrespecting Pennsylvania ladies.

    Who still says “womenfolk?”
