"Morning Joe has the same content as the rest of the cable MSM: Oil, oil, oil, Helen Thomas, oil, oil, oil. Yesterday James Cameron, movie genius and environmentalist, was on. The last time, he denounced everyone at BP as “stupid.” But this time, he said he had made an investigation, and he thought they were doing “OK.” Indeed, he noted, there was a similar spill off Australia that took four months to cap, and one in the Gulf of Mexico, off the Mexican coast, that took nine months. I thought: nine months, and we’re all still alive, the fish still swim, the sun still shines? You don’t suppose the media are demagoguing the current oil leak, do you? OMG, an oiled bird! (Is that the same fowl we keep seeing?) Forget the wars, the economy, the police state.
Also on, the creepy Sen. Schumer, who called for ending the $75 million liability cap on oil spill damages, and said that if that bankrupted BP, so be it. Companies that cannot pay their obligations must go out of business. Well, yes, though no one sought to ask who put on the cap—the oily Bush I and Congress—and why this laudable principle did not apply to Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Citibank, and the rest of Schumer’s beloved bosses, for whom he arranged vast taxpayer bailouts, in effect a cap on their liability, to prevent them from going bankrupt. Note: BP has already paid out almost $1.25 billion." Via LRC
