Republican Leadership Honors Joe Barton's Apology To BP

News

Remember when everybody was so outraged about actual Oil Industry Millionaire Joe Barton apologizing to BP for all the trouble America caused by allowing BP to destroy the entire Gulf of Mexico? And the GOP House leadership dragged Barton into a back room and slapped his cheeks gently with their flaccid old orange penises? And he was going tolose his spot as the ranking Republican on the powerful House Energy committee? Well, let's let bygones be bygones, because America needs to move on.


All is forgiven, right? USA Today reports on what The Hill reported:

Following a closed-door meeting of Republicans today, House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters that Barton apologized to fellow GOP lawmakers for his "poor choice of words" and the "issue is closed," The Hill reports.

Hooray, the issue is closed! Everybody tell the Democrats so Joe Barton won't end up in every Democratic campaign ad this year.

The Republicans really don't want to win the House. Governing is annoying, anyway.

ALSO: MSNBC is reporting that two people just died working on the containment effort, and the well is suddenly gushing LOTS more crude into the Gulf of Mexico. So it's a good time to secure Joe Barton's position as America's Oil Industry Man on the House energy committee.

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
