I probably should have started drinking before I wrote this



I'll admit, I didn't listen to the entire speech Sir Golfs-A-Lot gave regarding the oil spill, because I just can't drink that much and still have a liver.  But I've skimmed enough articles about it now to pretend to sorta have an idea of what was said.  So with that in mind, I have a few thoughts...

I'm not surprised we have an oil spill czar.  What I find surprising, given Obama's previous track record of choosing czars, is that it's not Joseph Hazelwood.  What I don't find surprising is that the oil spill czar is in charge of dishing out other people's money instead of actually working on finding a solution.

I'm not surprised that Obama thinks that "what every American wants and expects is accountability", by which he means a payday.  I wish that Obama realized that what every person wants at the end of the day is the mess cleaned up, and for the feds to do something other than threaten to kick ass and pass out money to the victims of this disaster.  I'd be willing to bet at least a bottle of Val-U-Rite that most of the people out of work due to the oil spill would rather have a living than a payout.
