GOP Loves BP

Posted by Phoenix Woman on June 18, 2010

If it had just been John Boehner cuddling up to BP, that’d be one thing.

But as Joe Conason points out, out Republican politicians, prominent ones like Haley Barbour, Joe Barton, and (of course) Minnesota’s own talking point of blight, Michele Bachmann, who are revealing the GOP’s love for Big Oil even as it kills the Gulf Coast ecosystem and economy.

And guess what? These are people who’ve been sucking up to the teabaggers, aka the GOP base.

    I had no idea that the 6th District had struck oil.

    Congratulations, St. Cloud on your new-found wealth, you betcha.

    The problem with Conason’s conclusion is that the teabaggers will never, ever allow this to register in their minds.

    Their blind unwavering faith in their Leaders is always enough to override any amount of exposure. It is not subject to disconfirmation.
