disclaims 'shakedown' apology
Barton's so crazy, the crazy GOP disowns him
Earlier Thursday, insane Rethug Joe Barton of
Texas apologized to BP for what he termed as an "Obama shakedown."
An uproar immediately ensued, and now the GOP
leadership is moving quickly to distance itself from that nutbag Barton.
Even the crazy John Boner told Fox News that BP
voluntarily agreed to "put this $20 billion dollars in escrow."
He added, "I don't know what context Mr. Barton
was making that remark, but I'm glad BP has accepted responsibility for
Rep. Jeff Miller of Florida, one of Barton's Republican
colleague in the House, called on him to step down as the
moist rank Republican on the committee. Miller's
Pensacola district has been hit hard by the spill, The Hill notes.
The White House pounced, saying, "Joe Barton seems
to have more concern for big corporations that cause the disasters
than the fishermen, small business owners and
communities whose lives have been devastated by the destruction."
I should be happy that the evil sons of bitches
let the truth slip, but this made me kinda sad.
Sometimes it seems like the only victories we
get is when the other side screws up.
We don't know how to frame an issue, we don't
know how to frame an argument
and we're too timid to speak up, even when we're
right, so the only time we get a
victory is when the heartless bastards shoot
themselves in the foot.
It's like if the Democratic Party was a championship
We have a decent record, but that's only because
the other fighter
keeps getting caught wearing brass knuckles under
"Fighiting is always wrong!"
