This is just painfully stupid:
Mississippi State Rep. Steve Holland, a Democrat, introduced a bill in the state’s lower chamber calling for the part of the Gulf of Mexico that borders his state to be renamed the “Gulf of America.”
They should just name it the Gulf of BP, since those guys made it their bitch a while back.
*** Update ***
Thank goodness, it was satire. And no, given the events of the last few years, I don’t feel even slightly foolish for thinking it was real. In the realm of our completely idiotic public discourse, this was entirely plausible and believable.
