BP boss admits job on the line over Gulf oil spill

Tony Hayward, the beleaguered chief executive of BP, has claimed its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is "relatively tiny" compared with the "very big ocean".

In an bullish interview with the Guardian at BP's crisis centre in Houston, Hayward insisted that the leaked oil and the estimated 400,000 gallons of dispersant that BP has pumped into the sea to try to tackle the slick should be put in context.

"The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume," he said.


Shut up.

No, really. For the love of God, SHUT UP. Moron.

I won't be buying BP gas in the future. In fact, I think I'll write them a love letter to let them know that. I've been mulling it over since the spill; after all, Exxon and Chevron are worse in a lot of ways. (Valdez, anyone? How about that wonderful East Bay air?) But the way that BP is actively trying to weasel out of responsibility, and the way that they and Transocean are playing the blame game, has pretty much put it over the line.

A crew of boys went by a bit ago, bellowing the ways boys will, and one of them screamed, just as they passed my room, "SHUT UP, DOWN'S SCHOOL IS MEETING." (Or something to that effect.)

I told my students that nothing inspires me to go postal faster than people messing with my students in any way, including by insulting them.

Yeah, they're just stupid ignorant boys who think anything different is bad and threatening and who probably cannot possibly conceive of coming to school just because you want to. Don't care. They still suck. And I would still throw someone out of my class if he made hateful ignorant comments about developmentally disabled people, even if it's "only" to suggest that Down's is in some way "bad."

The embedding tool for this CNN news video doesn't work (oh yay, Turner Broadcasting, WHATEVER), but the upshot is that the minister of a Baptist church in Arizona says right on camera that he prays for Obama to get brain cancer and die.

Quality human, oh yeah.

Even better? The dude who showed up at the Obama town hall later that weekend in Phoenix, toting an assault rifle? Was in Crazy Minister's church during that service.

In Bush's day, you couldn't even wear a freakin' t-shirt that said BUSH SUCKS or IRAQ: GTFO or DEAR GOD, IF YOU WERE TO TAKE GEORGE W. BUSH, LIKE, TOMORROW I WOULD NOT EVEN CRY, SRSLY, or large goons would come and make your ass vanish in the dead of night and next thing anyone knows, you're calling collect from, like, Belgrade or some shit. But Obama's the evil one?

Congressman: Delta Fish a "Worthless Little Worm"

April 24, 2009 ยท Posted By Craig Miller

In hearings by the House Energy & Commerce Subcommitee today, Rep. George Radanovich (R-Fresno) called the Delta smelt "a worthless little worm that needs to go the way of the dinosaur." He made the remark as part of a five-minute attack on "environmental alarmism," in response to testimony from former vice-president Al Gore, founder of the Alliance for Climate Protection.

The only worthless little worm I see in this story is you, Mr. Radanovich. Or, as the kids say these days, Bitch, please.

I just got an e-mail from Equality California with a completely appalling photo: a man holding a hand-lettered sign that reads "Dan White: Hero. Killing a Queer."

Bitch, STFU. That is so disgusting. I don't care what your religion says; if you stand up and cheer for a murderer, you're a pile of shit trying vainly to masquerade as a human being.

No, seriously. You can hear it come out of her own mouth.

You have got to be kidding me. No, seriously, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FREAKING KIDDING ME.

My brain is running around in circles looking for the glass box marked IN CASE OF BREATHTAKINGLY CRETINOUS COMMENTS, BREAK HERE.

Lady? I can help you with that. OF COURSE THEY'RE TERRORISTS, YOU MORON. Now sit down and shut up.
