Drill Baby Drill

5000 barrels of oil a day spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. The slick is expected to hit the coast tomorrow.

Spill Baby Spill....

The spill occurred on Earth Day.

AP: A new oil leak was discovered at the site in the Gulf of Mexico where a drilling rig exploded and sank, and experts now estimate that five times more has been spilling into the water a day than previously believed, the Coast Guard said late Wednesday. Eleven workers are missing and presumed dead.

Hope this serves as a lesson to those mindless idiots who chant "Drill Baby Drill" .... but then again, you wouldn't expect people like that to give a shit about the environment.

I don't think the people who chanted "Drill baby Drill" meant "Let foreign owned corporations drill in the gulf of mexico" or "Drill without proper safety precautions."

Better (rhetorical) questions, it seems to me, are: why is the Obama administration is dawdling while the well continues to spill its oil? Where is FEMA? Where is the EPA? Where is the Coast Gaurd? Why is the U.S. Minereal Managment Service not saving the wildlife? Why won't the government specify a maximum amount of oil that will be released?

Lots of arm waving, which is to be expected no matter who is in power, but if a Republican or a conservative were president, you know the press and the liberals would be demonstrating much more loudly.
