Obama’s Tireless Efforts On the Basketball Court and Golf Course Cause BP to Successfully Insert New Pipe to Siphon Oil to Surface
I’ll leave it to Chris Matthews to find a way to link the two, but first, the potentially good news:
Engineers trying to stop an oil leak deep below the surface of Gulf of Mexico have successfully inserted a mile-long pipe to siphon oil from the disastrous spill, British Petroleum said Sunday.
BP says they are now capturing some of the leaking oil, and hopfully all of it eventually.
Keith Olbermann has dismissed the swarm as racist “Beebaggers” upset at the health care bill. Congressman Clyburn was in the car and claims to have heard at least two of the bees buzzing racial slurs, though news footage doesn’t as yet support that claim.
As luck would have it, smoke has a calming effect on bees, so all the president had to do was roll down the window and the bees slowly headed back to Michelle’s garden.
And if shooting hoops wasn’t enough, yesterday Obama spent majority of his Saturday trying to plug up the oil leak by jamming golf balls into every hole in the ground he could find:
And it might have worked!
If BP’s latest effort doesn’t go as well as expected, the administration’s going to offer the stubborn leak a Medal for Courageous Restraint and see if that’s enough to get it to stop.
