Karma is a bitch. Remember the formaldehyde-laden FEMA trailers that Chimpy used to try to kill the displaced poor people of New Orleans? They are back, and BP is using them to
kill house the Oil Gusher clean-up workers.
Oil companies and Chimpy. It’s a bad thing.
Wired tells us that the oil from the gulf will be in the Atlantic by “no later than October.“
Hahahaha! Now I know why Weepy wanted the US Taxpayer to pick up the tab for BP’s environmental disaster: he bought about $50,000 of BP stock, which –HAHAAAAAHAHAHAHA! — he bought right before the rig blew up real good. Which means he no longer owns $50,000 of BP stock.
House Republican Leader John Boehner bought between $15,000 and $50,000 in stock in BP, the company responsible for the spill that has spurred an environmental disaster. Boehner, of West Chester, purchased the stock on Dec. 10, four months before the April 20 explosion that set off the spill.
According to Boehner’s office, the congressman sold his BP stock on May 18. It wasn’t immediately clear how much money Boehner lost in the transaction.
…there’s something oily in it:
What happens when you’re a small government, pro-business conservative and your state gets pummeled by one of the worst man made disasters ever – not five years after getting pummeled by one of the worst natural disasters (Hurricane Katrina)? If you’re Louisiana Senator David Vitter, you double down on offshore drilling and push for a liability cap for BP.
Maybe being pro-BP will throw Vitter out, while his trysts with hookers seems to be acceptable. After all, GOP grifters want money, and if he is going to negotiate it away protecting BP, they might not like that.

BP hires Cheney spokeswoman to lead PR effort
No mention if BP plans to shoot an old dude in the face yet.
Getty – President Carebear sprouts antlers, he’s so angry.
President Carebear has fired Liz Birnbaum, who was the head of Porn and Meth administration that also (too?) was somehow in charge of oil rig inspections. However, Ken Salazar says that she resigned “on her own terms and own volition,” which is Washington speak for spending time with her family, which means she will be porn surfing at home.
Meanwhile, BP is now not so sure about their mud-packing into the butt of the earth to stop it from spewing forth earth-butt stuff onto Bubba Jindal, Boy Exorcist. Oh, and it is now officially the worst oil disaster in the history of the republic.
…we think it prudent to remind our readers to not try this at home.
Oops, wrong vid.
They are gonna try an’ clog the pipe using a lot drilling oil, which sounds gross to me, and remember, not all lubricants are safe.
The good news: Mermaids are real. The bad news: they’re pissed off.
