This Is What Happens When BP Spills Coffee

Pretty funny, but the oil leak in the gulf is a very serious engineering problem. People like Barack Obama, who have never worked in the real world, probably think that we should be able to solve this just by dreaming up theoretical solutions. Reality bites.

I think BP’s main failing is embarking on this risky venture without having contingencies for this kind of disaster. Did they really think nothing could go wrong? This will be a political, environmental, and economic disaster. We will all feel the negative effects for decades. BP deserves to go down, not for the accident itself, but for not being prepared for it.

Watch as our "progressive" government reacts to this with exactly the wrong policies. There is already speculation that oil companies wouldn't be drilling in mile deep water if government regulations hadn't forced them so far offshore. There might be some truth to that.
