GALL TO SPARE: Texas's Republican Congressman Joe Barton displayed a new form of chutzpah in the Washington Post today: "Finally, he said, "if there is a silver lining in this," it will be renewed political impetus to expand oil exploration beyond the Gulf region, especially in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge." As he seeks to make this tragedy an excuse for pushing his own agenda, right-wing pundits are denouncing those who criticize the sloppy government response for "exploiting the catastrophe for political purposes".

    This is the same S.O.B. who has fought to let Texas Utilities continue to belch filth unchecked into the air just Southwest of Dallas. With the prevailing breeze....allergies and pulmonary problems are now on the rise in Dallas & Ellis Counties. His nickname in Ennis is "Smoky Joe Barton" But then, this is the idiot that once told my Dad that "the battle of San Jacinto was a bloody, long battle." Yeah, Joe...all 18 minutes of it was just a bloodbath.
