Oh, for Christ’s sake

First, SWAT teams, now it’s Department of Justice suits. We’ve got a horrible accident down in the Gulf, but para-military units and lawyers are useless – engineers could help.

    You’re forgeting the immortal words of political-genius Rahm Emanuel “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” A big oil spill is a POLITICAL opportunity! Isn’t that wonderful?

  2. That is correct. I propose that anyone who attended, or watched, the 2008 GOP Convention go down to New Orleans, wade into the Gulf led by Sean Hannity, and yell, “Drill, Baby, Drill!”
    The WSJ has a couple of articles today saying that drilling advocates are now rethinking their positions…ya think???

    So Zappa had it right: Send lawyers, guns, and money.

    Because you know sending lawyers and morons with guns into a highly technical emergency will magically improve everything.

    After all BP isn’t motivated to fix anything by a firehose of money spewing across the sea floor, the direct clean up costs AND the impending lawsuits from hell that every damn litigator from Mexico to Florida are going to launch in every court room hell to heaven for the next 30 years.

    Because you know even if BP did NOTHING wrong, and everyting was up to snuff and it was just really bad luck, they are going to get screwed by the same litigators who are such prominent democratic contributors.
