Amazingly, There Are Oil Spill Deniers

Boss Hogg, for example, thinks his beaches in Mississippi are just fine and dandy. Here's Haley Barbour on Fox News Sunday:

"The truth is," he said, "we have had virtually no oil. If you were on the Mississippi Gulf coast anytime in the last 48 days you didn't see any oil at all. We have had a few tar balls but we have had tar balls every year, as a natural product of the Gulf of Mexico. 250,000 to 750,000 barrels of oil seep into the Gulf of Mexico through the floor every year. So, tar balls are no big deal. In fact, I read that Pensacola or the Florida beaches when they have tar balls yesterday didn't even close. They just sent people out to pick them up and throw them in the bag."

"...The Mississippi gulf coast is beautiful. As I tell people, the coast is clear. Come on down!"

The ability for Republicans to deny reality is beyond comprehension.

So when will Boss Hogg pull on his old-timey bathing trunks and take a dive into Gulf, then eat a plate of shrimp caught nearby? After all, it's just food mousse. Natural!

Adding... Yet when it comes down to a question of the president's "leadership," the oil spill is a "disaster."

So which is it, Boss Hogg? A "disaster" or "food mousse toothpaste" that happens naturally every day?

Barbour is seriously topping Sarah Palin in the moron category right now, and I didn't think that was possible.
