I can’t believe our politics is so fucking stupid that the President has to bow to political pressure and give a big address from the WH about the oil spill. And then we can all wank about whether he was “tough enough on BP” or if he “showed enough emotion” or “took charge” or showed he was “hands on and in control.” None of which stops the fucking leak.
Of course, if anything positive was going to happen, Obama would have to stand up there and say “Those
penguins pelicans coated with oil and shrimp that taste like wd-40? You stupid motherfuckers can expect more of that until you stop voting for assholes who oppose alternative energy sources and any move away from fossil fuels. Until then, I hear dental floss works ok removing tarballs from your teeth, you dumbasses. Also, this response IS big government, you teabagging shitheels.”
That would probably be deemed partisan, though. Just shoot me.
And no, I’m not watching.
