Joe, The Plugger

The cross-cutting matrix of interests that defines our new global landscape is nicely represented in this commercial for the non-profit Citizens Energy featuring founder, and Kennedy family scion, Joe Kennedy extoling Venezualan generosity.  Venezuela, under Hugo Chavez’s leadership, has been subsidizing home heating oil for low income Americans for a few years now in a humanitarian gesture cum F.U. to the Administration.  Kennedy reminds us that it’s lot harder to uphold foreign policy absolutes in the face of faltering prosperity.
