Or more like a bloom of cancer?
I don’t know that anyone has the heart for it… but I left the gallery of 20 photos at the Guardian at a section of several images of Barataria Bay and Bay Jimmy in Louisiana… and they are so very sad.
The battle, what there was of it, was lost. Has been lost. Is being lost…
I had almost not opened the gallery, feeling it might be national propaganda for BP, even at a quasi left media resource…
At the same time I am looking at the pictures of bits of soaked boom and masses of oil, deep thick sludge and tiny hoses, etc… film of Haley Barbour is on my TV, saying he has to be ”honest” (!) there is not enough boom, nor skimmers, for all that is “headed north”.
Of course, “north” is where he been, for weeks. Whether Dallas, DC, Central Park (yes, with the missus), other points N.. at R fundraisers for his supposed run for pretzel.
I say he is just dropping in on the national bag men.
Biden and Mabus, the former MS gov who is Ob’s part time Czar for the oil, are on the coast today. Not that it matters much, full or part-time, I read yesterday Durbin wants Ob to appoint a WH Czar for the Chinese carp that are invading the Great Lakes.
More toadies. With titles. And collection plates.
Line them all up, with Haley, and punch their lights out.
