Oil Spill Blues

I haven’t posted anything in a week, mainly because I don’t have much to say about the oil spill.  It’s a depressing mountain of political sludge. 

In terms of its response to the crisis, I’d give the Obama Administration an A- on the substance an F on the politics.  (Haven’t they figured out that the campaign is never-ending?)

As for the Republicans — well, it’s not exactly breaking news on this blog that they’re nothing but a pack of corporate whores.  (The sight of future oil lobbyist Smokey Joe Barton planting his lips on Tony Hayward’s pasty hindquarters at a Congressional hearing isn’t going to pry me away from a big sports week on TV.  Dog bites man.)

I just hope the engineering “experts” down there know what the hell they’re to fix the problem.  (From my perch of blissful ignorance, I kind of like this guy’s idea.)
