Joe Barton - STILL a Stupid Bastard

A little over a year ago, the distinguished gentlemen from Texas, Joe Barton, proved himself an ass with an attempt to use the presence of oil in Alaska to prove that the Earth had been warmer IPSO FACTO Global Climate Change is a filthy commie lie. And we all had a good laugh, because he's an idiot.

Well, ol' Joe has stepped up to the plate with yet another complete asshole move: he apologized to BP for the government "shake-down" related to the colossal environmental Apocalypse proceeding down Gulf-a-ways. Because, of course, holding companies responsible for their disastrous mistakes and expecting them to behave in a responsible manner is simply un-American. Pretty awesome, Joe! Here's a short clip of the current favorite for "oily sycophant of the year award":



And hell, when even John Boehner thinks that you maybe stepped over the line a little, then man, you've really screwed the pooch!

What's telling about this is how the Republican establishment reacted knowing it was a gaffe ... the majority of them agree w/ Barton but they know actually admitting that to the American people is out of step. They prefer to keep their corporate welfare plans a secret.

As punishment the GOP shold send "mad dog" Joe and scumbag Inhofe of OK to clean up some oil filled marshes for month in 100+ temps.
