Just so I understand this? BP absolutely descimates the Gulf of Mexico with an oil spill the size of Saturn (ok, a slight embellishment. But you get the idea), and the people left in charge of cleaning the thing up are … BP!?
I know, I know. I’m late to this. And BP is supposedly more qualified than anyone else to do the job. But, if someone walks up to my kid and douses his head with boiling milk, I’m not then going to trust the guy to clean it up, too. It’s absolutely inane, and I blame every active politician for this entire mess.
• Obama, for not showing more force and resolve and anger. It was easy, during an election, to blast corporate America. But here we are, and a corporate giant has truly fucked things up … and you’re quiet? Really, that’s the best you can do?
• The Republicans in Congress, who continue to push and push and push for more drilling. Congrats, you’ve gotten what you asked for.
• BP, a company of indescribable evilness. I will never, ever, ever buy gas from BP again. Ever.
• George W. Bush, because it’s fun.
