The Party of No S**t

The Party of No has once again snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

Amid near universal pundit disdain for the job Barack Obama has done in portraying the right attitude toward BP and Gulf Coast disaster, up steps Texas Republican Joe Barton defend CEO Tony Hayward and the BP "brain trust" and wag a finger at the White House and its $20 billion "shakedown" against the world's worst polluter and the Gulf Coast citizens victims.

There is no doubt the condemnation truly has been universal. Even House Republican John Boehner though the comment beyond the pale and Barton eventually backed down.

Rest assured the defense of the indefensible will make its way into every political ad in the upcoming battle for Congress. The knee-jerk blast at anything Obama proposed -- combined with the utter tone deafness to the needs of residents in the heart of the GOP base -- may rest as the single dumbest political statement every uttered in Washington.

And as we all know, that's saying a lot.
