Joe Barton is a sorry individual

You know that Joe Barton guy, the big oil company PAC contribution king, who by sheer coincidence completely unrelated to having received millions in oil company contributions, saw fit to apologize to the multinational oil company currently destroying the Gulf of Mexico?

Joe “Goofball” Barton

Barton subsequently apologized for his apology. This was by sheer coincidence, and had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the House Republican leadership was considering yanking his leadership position over the flap.

Yesterday, Barton, through his twitter account, pushed news stories that said Barton was right in the first place. I assure you that this had nothing to do with Barton surviving the threat to his leadership position.

In summary: Barton apologized for the apology he apologized for. But his Congressional staff has since taken responsibility and apologized. This will all be on the quiz later.

Note to Texas State Legislators: redistricting is coming up, and Texas’ state-controlled submerged lands extend far into the Gulf of Mexico. I think Joe Barton’s new district should consist of them.

    ok, a democratic Senator does something stupid, like attacking a student, he apologizes and everything is swept under the rug and democrats are satisfied. A Republican says something stupid, apologizes, but democrats still want them crucified. hmmmmm sounds bias to me.

    I am a sorry individual and do not appreciate being compared to Joe Barton. He makes me look not-sorry.

    It’s not democrats’ fault if the Republicans don’t know how to make a story about a democrat grabbing a sorry-ass college student stick. Perhaps because every person over the age of 50 knows that if some punk kid came up to him or her with a video camera, the old person would do the same thing.
