Rather than doing something that might actually do some good, like…I don’t know…approving Gov. Jindal’s repeated requests for clearance to build protective berms along the LA coast, what the Annointed One and his administration are giving us is more regulation and its corollary, more lawyers.

For every oil mess in the ocean, there are ten thousand successful extractions of oil, all of which are — quite naturally — unnoticed by us.
