Joe "Big Oil" Barton's Brain Fart

Congressman Joe Barton, 6th District of Texas, apologized to BP's CEO Tony Haywood for the White House's attempt to "shakedown" BP and hold them financially responsible for the largest oil spill in United States history. Rep. Barton proves once again that having an almost total lack of higher brain function is no handicap for a conservative politician.

In a moment of uncharacteristic political acumen, GOP leadership quickly forced Joe to recant his apology. If Rep. Barton feels an apology is in order, let him apologize to the families of the eleven dead oil platform workers, the thousands of Gulf Coast residents who's lives have been traumatized, and the millions of creatures - great and small - that have perished due to BP's criminal actions in short-circuiting the well capping process to save a few hundred thousand dollars.

I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative.
