[Politics/Religion] You have GOT to be kidding me!

Quote
"I'm ashamed of what happened in the White House yesterday," said Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.) during a hearing on Thursday morning with BP's CEO Tony Hayward." I think it is a tragedy in the first proportion that a private corporation can be subjected to what I would characterize as a shakedown -- in this case a $20 billion shakedown -- with the attorney general of the United States, who is legitimately conducting a criminal investigation and has every right to do so to protect the American people, participating in what amounts to a $20 billion slush fund that's unprecedented in our nation's history, which has no legal standing, which I think sets a terrible precedent for our nation's future."

"I'm only speaking for myself. I'm not speaking for anyone else, but I apologize," Barton added. "I do not want to live in a county where anytime a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong, [it is] subject to some sort of political pressure that, again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown."

Seriously? SERIOUSLY?

What a douchebag! FWIW, he's being called out by his own party for having his head up Tony Hayward's ass.

You know, I'd buy that except that yesterday's wingtard talking point was (seriously) that Obama was not condescending enough to Hayward.

So I'm saying 'Bravo' to Rep. Miller for bucking the party line.

Oh, and it gets better!

Apparently Fox edited his statement so that it only sounds like he's orally pleasuring Hayward, as opposed to being a pincushion for every member of BeePees upper management.
