Hey MSM - call this disaster for what it is. This is not an oil leak, it's an oil gusher! The term "leak" is understating the ongoing and long term disaster to our environment. An oil leak drips out of an older cars' oil pan and can be absorbed with kitty litter; a gusher is an underground volcano full of dirty crude that no one knows how to stop. This oil disaster isn't ending any time soon. I get more angry every single day and I'm not sure if it's due to BP's initial arrogance and current incompetence, our government not putting the boot heel on BP's neck sooner or the plain disgust that nothing has gotten better in 35 days. I don't live there and I'm not a seafood eater and I'm pissed. I can't even imagine how the people this really affects are feeling. Mike Papantonio passionately describes his position on Chris Matthews' Hardball earlier today. Seems like we could learn a lesson from Saudi Arabia where they had a disasterous spill in 1994 and sucked up roughly 85% of the crude. Wait until you hear why we're not in a position to do the same.
Hint: It starts with a "G" and ends with a "D".
