BREAKING: Obama is planning to reject the Keystone XL pipeline this afternoon:

Politico is reporting that Obama is planning to reject the Keystone XL pipeline this afternoon. Here’s a quick roundup of some reasons why that’s awesome: Keystone XL is a potential environmental disaster . Especially since it would go right through Earthquakeville . Rejecting it is not actually going to ruin Obama’s chances of reelection . We don’t want to let the oil and gas industry get away with this kind of corrupt bullcrap . The State Department already freakin’ SAID not to rush them. Do not make them turn this ship of state around!
